Talking Smart: Foreign Names

Guadalberto Mojica (Span.)
[mohika]. This surname is often mispronounced in an English manner, with "j" like in "John". Should be like "h" in "Harry".

György Józsi (Hung.)
[diord yozhi]
. [Diord] is pronounced as one syllable, "zh" is like "s" in "pleasure".

Gyula Hegedűs (Hung.)
[diu-la hegedush]. [diu]
is one syllable, like English "dew".

Henrik Rydström (Swed.)
. For the English it obviously would be [roodstrom].

Igor Žofčák - (Czech.)
[igor zhofchak]
