The Winter Olympics are coming soon, and with them a bounty of failed attempts at approximating the pronunciation of non-English names. I look forward to hearing broadcasters come up with remarkable renditions, but for those who would like to get as close as reasonably possible to the original, I’m going to do a series of pronunciation tip videos. I’m starting with the names of the venues: Pyeongchang, Gangneung, Kwandong, Jeongseon, Yongpyong, and Bokwang.
