Our lesson today focuses on tone sandhi, and particularly the change we make in the pronunciation of two third tone characters when we put them together. You're probably already aware that in these situations our first third tone character morphs into the second tone. But have you had much chance to practice? And has anyone ever given you feedback on how you sound?
This is the first speaking lesson we've ever done that comes with a dedicated podcast. We suggest listening to it first, and then working through our generative fix for extra practice. When you're ready click through to our text page, where you will find our toll-free telephone number listed in the side column along with your PIN number for this lesson. Call us, make a recording, and you can expect to hear back from us in a day or two. Good luck!
