    The Problem

  • Most News Anchors mangle basic Chinese city names, leaders’ names, etc. For example, Beijing as “Beixing” and Xi Jinping as “Zhi Zhiping”“Shanghai” vs. “Shonghai” Dang vs. DongWhere I taught English & Economics: Chinese: 哈尔滨 Hā’ěrbīn         Home of the “Ice Lantern Festival” every winter!
  • We Provide The Solution

  • We can coach you to pronounce common names correctly and practice Pinyin to handle new names.
  • {You don’t need tones in this case (unless you’d like to learn some) just good basic pronunciation.}
  • If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
