cal2u Posted July 12, 2016 at 01:10 AM Report Share Posted July 12, 2016 at 01:10 AM Thanks for your feedback guys, especially you, 陳德聰! Do you have any advice on distinguishing between n and ng syllables? I feel kinda stupid saying my name wrong. (I guess I should change my name as well as my nationality). I've heard the back of the mouth, front of the mouth thing before, but it's never been very helpful for me. I'm just not sure which muscles to tense/relax. I do know that I have issue with both u and ü that I need to work on. I'm going to look into that 3-2 tone combination. I've been told that I have problems with third tone before. Is the problem that the third tone isn't dipping? I remember reading before that one professor thought he had better success teaching third tone as the low tone instead of the dipping tone, because it doesn't usually rise at the end unless spoken alone. I've just been thinking "aim for a low pitch," but I incorrectly don't actually lower the pitch through the syllable. Does that sound plausible?
