The difference between よっか and ようか? I know that the translations are four days and eight days, but I'm not sure what the difference is in pronunciation. Thank you very much. :)

The small tsu (っ) makes the following consonant long (geminate consonant). These things don't exist in English. You start saying "k", then you make a little pause. The combination "ou" (o from よ, う = u) is like a long "oh". In the same way, "ei" is like a long "eh".

I wonder if I can explain it well, but I'm going to try. よっか: we pronouce YOKKA, (like staccato) and ようか: YOHKA (extend)

よっか - yach(t) cu(t) , while ようか - yo(del) cu(t)
