    Explanation
    The correct reading for the word いっしょに is "isshoni". The word いっしょに is a combination of two words, "issho" meaning "together" and "ni" meaning "with". When combined, it forms the adverb "together" or "at the same time". The correct reading is isshoni because the small つ (tsu) before the し (shi) doubles the consonant sound, making it "ssho" instead of "sho".
