Get The Chinese Tones Right.
Right From The Start!
Good tones are essential to clear & understandable Mandarin. Learn to say them confidently & correctly — whether you’re a total beginner or a more experienced learner.
"But Native Speakers Will Still Understand Me... Right?"
When you start learning Mandarin, there’s A LOT to take in.
And maybe you’ve asked yourself:
Are the tones really that important?
Can I put off focusing on them until later?
What if "just learning lots of words without worrying about the tones" is a shortcut to fluency..?
Well, in my 17 years of teaching Mandarin, I've seen plenty of students get lured down that path.
And what they tend to discover is this:
Not Paying Close Attention To The Tones Early On Is A Big Mistake
Because not only is it going to be hard for native speakers to understand you.
Fixing incorrect tones gets harder the longer you keep reinforcing them!
And while this may seem obvious, it raises an important question:
"Why do most Mandarin courses place so little emphasis on helping students nail the tones?"
I mean, after briefly introducing each tone in isolation, there's hardly ANY direct focus on tones.
And this lulls students into thinking they aren't crucial for communication.
Of course, this is far from reality!
So, the question is:
How Do You Get Comfortable With The Tones So You Can Sound Natural And Be Easily Understood?
Well, just practicing each tone in isolation is not the answer.
(Most students know this from experience!)
To get to a point where you can comfortably use them while speaking Chinese, tones need to be practiced together in context.
Once you learn how the tones work in combination, using them becomes MUCH less of a struggle.
And this is key to sounding natural and speaking Chinese with confidence.
That's why I encourage all students to get a good grasp of it as early as possible.
And to help with that, I've created a step-by-step program that shows you exactly how to go about it.
The Chinese Pronunciation Gym: Tone Transformations
"Tone Transformations" is the fast-track to natural sounding Chinese tones. Build the foundation you need to use the tones confidently and correctly — whether you’re a total beginner or a more experienced learner.
Here's How It Works
Tone Transformations is made up of 28 step-by-step workouts designed to help you...
Hook the tones into your memory
The first step to mastering the tones is to learn and remember what they actually sound like. In "Tone Transformations" we use a unique blend of audio, visuals and examples to make this step quick and easy for you!
Listen to multiple native speakers
Simply knowing what the tones sound like doesn't mean you'll be able to "hear" them in natural speech. That's in part because every native speaker sounds a little different... To get your ears tuned into this reality, we have multiple speakers model the tones for you throughout the course.
Practice the tones in combinations
In natural spoken Chinese, tones are rarely used in isolation. That's why we focus on helping you learn how the tones work together, so you'll be better able to use them correctly while speaking Chinese!
Test your knowledge
A short quiz is available after each lesson to help make sure you've got your head around the key concepts before moving on.
