    В / У Pronunciation

    :o)

    ne znaju, meni zdayet'sja, 'V', Shcho ti dumayesh'?

    Znachit:

    (v) at the very beginning of a word or phrase immediately before a vowel and between vowels. 2, you pronounce в - u at the very beginning of a word or phrase immediately before a constanant, or between contonant. and в is pronounced as english W between a vowel and contonant and after a vowel at the end of a word

    hope that helps you!
