Consonants
  • The following consonants p, f, t, k, h, q, x,
    c, s, ch and sh are aspirated sounds. If you put
    your palm in front of your mouth when you are
    reading out these letters, you will feel the air
    being exhaled. Read the following consonants
    after me in the first tone - you will be
    practising your vowels as well.

  • When you read out the following letters close
    your teeth, but not too tightly. Place your
    tongue so that it is just vibrating against the
    back of your upper front teeth. N.B the vowel
    i should NOT be pronounced in this case. The
    (here soundless) letter i is placed after z, c
    and s in written Pinyin as a vehicle for
    indicating the tones.

  • When you say z you should feel a buzz behind
    your upper front teeth.

    sound. Your tongue should be looser than in z.

Consonants
  • si
