Pronunciation challenge, August 2021
I tried mimicking a dialogue on WordSwing. I also went over sounds I struggle with using the Yabla pinyin table, as well as the videos explaining differences between "shu" and "xu", etc.
Originally my goal was 15 mins every second day. I'll try to do 15 mins every day or 30 mins every second day now. I used speechling again. I think it's great for sentence practice
Worked on my tones with sinosplice tone pair drills. I also tried reading a chapter from a duchinese story.
using speech input for Google translate - practice words it could not pick up
I did the Sinosplice tone drills, and tried to shadow a Mandarin Corner story video at half speed.
Worked on some quick shadowing. Shadowing is still a bit difficult for me, but I want to challenge myself.
I want to improve my tones in sentences. Two or three syllables is ok but I still struggle with sentences. Especially the 4th tone. I used speechling today to listen and record myself
I recorded myself saying the tone pairs in the same Hacking Chinese article from yesterday. I struggled a bit with "ju", "qu" and "xu" sounds, but it seemed to improve later on.
I recorded myself saying the tone pairs from Hacking Chinese. I struggled the most where there was a second tone on the first syllable.
