Issue in Macedoian Language

In the Macedonian Language lessons. I have noticed that the narrator incorrectly pronounces a character constantly. This would be the “Ј/ј” which sounds closest to the Еnglish “Y/y” as in “yell”.

When the narrator comes across this letter it pronounces the Macedonian “Ј/ј” as the Macedonian “Џ/џ” which sounds like the English, “J/j” as in “jump”. I haven’t run across words in lessons that have the “Џ” yet to verify if that is being used correctly. But this behavior should be the same as Serbian, which also have those two characters and sounds.

I am Macedonian, and speak it as a second language and can site my own experience, lessons, and the book “Macedonian: a Course for Beginning and Intermediate students” by Christina E. Kramer and its audio supplements as a source.

Thanks, we’ll look into it.

Thanks Zoran! Let me know if there is any way I can help.
