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.
