I’m really interested in studying Chinese, mainly to be able to make friends and potentially explore new business opportunities. I’m really enjoying the emphasis placed on building a solid foundation here!

I find it very entertaining to play around saying these and the tips to touch your vocal chords or put your hand in front of your mouth really help explain how to pronounce them properly. Thank you!

You know going through this lesson almost makes me feel like I’m in kindergarten again. It’s kind of funny learning to pronounce letters that are virtually the same in English, and if you’re watching these lessons you must already understand English, so… um, good work on being thorough, I guess. 😉
