Nihao, Lili,
when pronounced carefully and individually, I do okay; but in complete sentences I find it hard to tell this pair apart:
mai – mai [third tone vs. fourth tone] (buy – sell)
Is there a trick as what detail to listen for?
Cheers,
Moritz

I like to think of mài as being pronounced faster than mǎi, i.e. mai! and relate it to selling is a more urgent process than buying.

Also 卖 has a few more strokes than 买, i.e. it’s more complicated to write, as selling something is a more complicated process than buying.
