This short video course is designed to help beginners get their pronunciation up to speed. We will go over

  • tones and tone change rules,
  • problem vowels and diphthongs,
  • problem consonants and syllables,
  • and pinyin writing rules.

We made an effort to be brief and straight to the point, covering only these problem areas (instead of going over the entire pinyin chart). If you have had any problems with Chinese pronunciation, we hope this course will help you find the answers – and fast!
