#143 Limitless Chinese—Mastering the 4 tones (lesson)

Ahhhh yes, the dreaded Chinese tone. As we launch this Laowai Chinese podcast series for all you beginner learners out there, we’ve got to start with the basics. In my experience, tones are one of the most dreaded and intimidating parts of learning Chinese but training your ear to differentiate between them will be what sets you apart from the majority of Laowai. In this show, we’ll spend a couple of minutes debunking the fear factor of tones, learn the 4 basic tones, and practicing a couple of tricky tone combinations that’ll get you well on your way to speaking like a pro.
