leosmith Posted April 5, 2006 at 02:38 AM Report Share Posted April 5, 2006 at 02:38 AM Hi all, I've been doing some poking around, trying to find a good way to start my studies next year. I'd like to develope an understandeable accent in Chinese. There seems to be a lot of scams out there about perfecting foreign accents. It's possible some of their methods work, but I found lots of sites that use a lot of hard-selling techniques and "overly ridicule" traditional learning techniques. Do you know of a good technique for acquiring proper Chinese pronunciation? If so, post it here! Here is my favorite so far. This gentleman is on the leading edge of perfecting foreign language accents. (Notice his credentials, and the lack of products for sale on his site. )This is very technical, but also very useful. http://olle-kjellin.com/SpeechDoctor/ProcLP98.html I found it interesting that he is aware of the "natural" method, like most of these sites claim to be, but doesn't suggest silly things like sitting idle for 400 hrs before you start to talk.
