The Letter "L"

Mark Complete

The letter "L" is also pronounced slightly different than the English "L" sound.

English speakers tend to talk with a "lazy" L sound, whereas in Filipino the L sound is produced by flicking your tongue off of the roof of your mouth. This also sounds much like a Spanish speaking person's pronunciation of "L".
