Hi, everyone! Welcome back to David Qing's Mandarin Impossible channel.
In the first video, you learned the three elements of Mandarin Chinese characters'
pronunciation are consonant, vowel and tone mark. In this video, I will introduce the
“consonants” of the Hanyu Pinyin phonetic system.
There are 23 consonants in Hanyu Pinyin.
The consonants are divided into 8 parts in relation to how you use your mouth, tongue,
lips and teeth to articulate and pronounce the sounds. On this screen, from Part 1 to
Part 8, are all the consonants we will study in this lesson.
Now, let's start to learn how to pronounce these consonants together.
For Part 1, there are three symbols. Try to make the sound with your lips. Please pronounce
it after me
"b" "p" "m"
For Part 2, there is only one symbol. Try to make the sound with your upper front teeth
touching your lower lip. Please pronounce it after me
"f"
For part 3, there are four symbols. Try to make the sound with the front tip of your
tongue touching the roof of your mouth directly behind your front teeth. Please pronounce
it after me "d" "t" "n" "l"
For part 4, there are three symbols. Try to make the sound from the root or back of your
tongue. Please pronounce it after me "g" "k" "h"
For part 5, there are three symbols. When you make the sound, try to keep your tongue
flat inside your mouth, and keep your upper and lower front teeth touching together gently.
Please pronounce it after me "j" "q" "x"
For part 6, there are four symbols. Try to roll up your tongue when you make the sound.
Please pronounce it after me "zh" "ch" "sh" "r"
For part 7, there are three symbols. For these three symbols, let your tongue relax, but
try to keep your upper and lower front teeth touching together gently. Please pronounce
it after me "z" "c" "s"
For part 8, there are two symbols. For these two symbols, please focus on the shape of
your lips when you make the sound. Please pronounce it after me
"y" "w"
From Part1 to Part 8, we learned to pronounce 23 consonants. Now, let's have a quick review for all 23
consonants.
This is the end of the Consonants class for today. I hope you enjoyed it. Please also
practice pronouncing the Consonants as often as you can. In the next video, I will teach
you how to pronounce for the vowels. See you next time. Bye.
