How to pronounce


To properly pronounce the word "challah," follow these steps:

3. Lastly, say the sound "lah" with an open mouth and relaxed tongue.

British pronunciation: /'hælə/ (HAH-luh)

Remember to use your diaphragm to project your voice and maintain a steady rhythm while saying the word. Practicing in front of a mirror can also help improve your pronunciation.

Other helpful tips:
- Keep the emphasis on the first syllable, "HAH".
- Try to avoid pronouncing it as "kuh-luh" or "kuh-lah" with a hard "K" sound at the beginning.
- The "H" sound should be soft and not aspirated.
- Don't elongate the final "ah" sound too much, it should be quick and light.
