Tone Mnemonics

Probably the most foreign and difficult aspect of spoken Chinese for students is pronouncing the four tones. Many students find it helpful to make up mnemonics, memory devices that help associate a word with its respective tone.

Listen and Repeat

Listening and Repeating seem to be intuitive concepts for foreign language students. It is particularly important in Chinese because poor pronunciation can render your speech incomprehensible.
