ビール 販売

Need a basic phonetic pronunciation of the above. It is 'Beer For Sale' in English.

One just means beer and the other word means " causing harm"

Huh. Google is lost in translation then.

Lo and behold, I find Google has pronunciation as well. :badpc:

You can't mix the two words together in japanese. There needs to be an extra word to link the two words. lol

I wouldn't say I'm proficient... :horrified

I can pronounce the katakana (first three characters), but not the rest. (The teacher in Year 11 was useless.)

I'm pretty sure it's pronounced as 'biiru hanbai' - something like: bee-lu hahn-by.
