@eearroyo1312 I‘m not sure whether that’s actual advise or printed shit-posting. (If that’s true advice than I have to look up a similar approach for Vietnamese, this sounds quite different from „just imitate this sound that kind of sounds like ever other one“.

@schokopflaster it's actual advice from an actual Teach Yourself Mandarin Chinese book!

Maybe i'm biased because i already know the tones a bit, but it seems to work for me

@eearroyo1312 OMG someone needs to make a video of someone just speaking this way
