Hi Jan Oetting,
Thank you for your message.
These are hard as in the pronunciation of the characters. For example, not many people can pronounce 日 (rì) correctly, with the correct placement of the tongue, or the correct tone. 😅
Have a great day!
why are these supposed to be hard?
It is only one syllable?
Hello, Dedicated Nerd,
Thank you for the posting.
If you have any question, please let us know.
Idk if it's because of my natural mix of accents or if it's because I'm trilingual, but these words are honestly a breeze. Not trying to brag; maybe it's because this is difficult for American/Western speakers? Idk
Thank you for your posting.
Don't be afraid of practising!
I'm sure you will master it soon!
I find the xue sound to be awkward, especially in third tone such as 雪。
Thank you for posting!
Haha, they are very hard! That is the point :innocent:
Practice practice, and I am sure you will get it!
I cannot pronounce these words. It blows my mind.
