I practised 1st tone combinations, and also consonants and vowels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpDbuji_Hew https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtnQuHg8F8U
I used speechling for shadowing & recording Even though I'm quite busy and couldn't study pronunciation every day I wanted to, I can still feel I improved a bit.
I didn't give up so I kept practicing z, c, s with other video series, and I like them so much that I practiced again b, p, d, t with them as well. I practiced zh, ch, sh and r too.
I practised second tone combinations plus some first tone combinations via YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdySIVkSqT0; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpDbuji_Hew
I was in a discord voice channel with 中国人. They corrected other people pronunciation and I learnt from it a lot. My Mandarin 发音 is so far from the correct one. 我必须更努力吧
Watched two videos about z, c, and s pronunciation and practiced them using 1st tone only. I generally practice the other tones too, but these letters make me feel overwhelmed so easily x.x
Reading text aloud, paying extra attention to n an ng difference and correct tongue position
practicing tones in new words ahead of reading aloud to convo partner (just characters)

Recently I've been trying to make my pronunciation of the consonants more accurate and native-like, hence I'm going over some video lessons for beginners. j,q,x practice https://www.youtube.com/wa...
