Your Comprehensive, Interactive Guide to Mastering the Sounds and Tones in Mandarin Chinese
The key to correct Chinese pronunciation-- through sight and sound
In Mandarin Chinese, the word “ma” can mean four different things depending on the tone (the pitch) -- “mother,” “hemp,” “horse,” or “to scold” -- even though the pronunciation is the same.
If you are not a native speaker of Chinese, you may find this aspect of learning the language daunting. McGraw-Hill’s Chinese Pronunciation makes it easier for you to pronounce Chinese words correctly. You are first introduced to the simple sounds; you then learn their combinations and correct tones. Vibrant illustrations in the book and video demonstrations on the CD-ROM even show tongue placement and mouth shapes to help you get the words right.
The accompanying CD-ROM features:
- Video of all sounds
- Helpful advice on how to combine sounds and tones
- Detailed instruction on tongue placement
- MP3 files to download to your iPod or other MP3 player
CD-ROM requires Windows 98 or above. Does not work on Macintosh.
