This paper considers the problem of voiced and voiceless Russian explosive consonants in the Russian pronunciation by Korean students. An experiment was conducted to identify the acoustic variations in the pronunciation by Korean students of Russian explosive consonants. In the first stage, a computer program Praat 5.3.48 recorded Russian explosive consonants pronounced by native speakers of Russian and Korean languages. In the second stage, during the comparative analysis of the results of the experiment, acoustic characteristics of Russian explosive consonants were analyzed, and while they were pronounced by Korean students, they were found to have deviated from the norm of Russian language.
