I really struggle with a few of these.

It would be great to know where to place your tongue when saying these words?

Thanks for the help in learning this beautiful language :)

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!

It is only one syllable?

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
