This pronunciation course is produced by DigMandarin and taught by Spring Zhang, a native Chinese teacher. With years of teaching experience and data research, we deeply know how important and necessary it is to lay a solid learning foundation with the proper Chinese pronunciation. Only with good pronunciation can you avoid many potential learning obstacles and make Chinese people fully understand what you are saying.
Remember that an accent takes time and training to change, so it is suggested that you do only one lecture per day and practice every day. The recommended time is approximately 16 days to complete the course. You have the choice of taking your time with the course or to go through it quickly – it is really up to you. But keep in mind that pronunciation is something that involves the muscles of the throat and mouth and requires a lot of muscle coordination and mental awareness. Once you are familiar with how to make the sounds, then it’s time to practice, practice, practice before using it in real life.
In each lecture, the related text notes and daily pronunciation guides will be attached as your homework or as review materials.
This course includes:
Lectures for every single sound in Chinese.
PDF worksheets for each sound.
Quick quiz after each lecture to help you review the content you just learned.
Close-up videos so you can mimic the pronunciation of the teacher.
The tables of initials and finals in PDF format.
The audios of initials and finals in MP3 format.

Good info but sometimes hard to understand
This was a helpful course. However, Ms. Zhang’s English is not always very clear and that made it difficult to understand her and what she was trying to teach.
I am really enjoying this course!
I appreciate the exercises where the lips and tongue positioning were explained. I have limited time in the day but when I get a minute I am excited about joining Spring to learn these pronunciations.
