Lesson 9 was about 3 ways to pronounce ‘i’ and the rule about where (on which vowel) to put the tone mark.
Expression of the day
Excuse me./I’m sorry.
Other than that, I tried to learn from sentences in the Chinese wordbook for introductory level that I bought on Google Play (just 8 words and 8 sample sentences). I know nothing about Chinese grammar but the sentences have translation and Naver Dictionary (Chinese-Korean) can divide the sentence into words and phrases so I thought why not? It turned out, the sentences were pretty straightforward. “My dad’s + body + very + healthy.”
I recorded 28 words to Anki but I couldn’t remember them.
I find that I can remember the Chinese words in romanized form, but without the correct tone marks. I can’t remember how they’re supposed to sound, either. I guess I can use mnemonics or write them until I remember or listen to words until I can connect them to their pinyin but I just didn’t feel like doing it today. Maybe tomorrow. ###
