A series of 67 pronunciation training drills to help correct various pronunciation problems.
Visualized Tone Mark system:
Proprietary smart tone mark system allows the student to visualize the pitch and tone changes of pronunciation materials, rather than over reliance on Pinyin. This system shows the tone changes of “yī”, “bù”, “third tone variations” which are usually considered the most confusing points in Mandarin. Students have the chance to combine visual clues for correct pronunciation.
Professional Chinese speakers always emphasize each syllable (they “bite” each syllable). Through the correct “biting” of a character, superb professional Chinese speakers enable the audience to understand each single syllable from the distance, which is especially important when one wants to make an impressive lecture. To allow another Chinese to understand clearly, a student of Mandarin also needs to master this technique.

Stop copying the pronunciation of digital dictionaries and learn how to pronounce the syllables in sentences with correct and humanized rhythm and speech flow.
