In Japanese, the character ん can make several different sounds. We write the word for newspaper as “shimbun” because it sounds like an “M” before the “B” sound. When it comes before a “K” or “G” sound it can sound like “NG”. But when it comes at the end of a word, it makes a sound we do not use in English. (That is why English speakers have trouble saying “one thousand yen” correctly.) The trick to pronouncing English “N” correctly is to make sure your tongue touches the roof of your mouth, especially when the sound comes at the end of a word.
