Overview

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.
