Re: English: Modification of /h/ in front of certain vowels
So, do you think I'm saying [çuman]?

And Roy, yes, I think you pronounce human with silent h . I also used to pronounce words like human and humid with a silent h (as most Italian also do), but one of my English teachers (who wasn't a native but Ucrainian) didn't understand me at first, then when he understood he taught to pronounce with h.
Many of you say I pronounce the H stronger than natives, is it possibile that I pronounce a [x] instead of [h]?
"Ĉokolado". Do you know how to say "chócoleit" in "Espanis"?
