Mandarin Pinyin & Pronunciation


In order to get the Mandarin pronunciation right, find out how different the language is in comparison to yours.

Mandarin is pronounced rather differently, for example, as in comparison to English. While there are sounds pronounced in a similar way, such as 'b' as in 'bed' and 'p' as in 'pen'; there are others that are distinctly different.
