Pinyin: the "c" and "z" sounds

Revision as of 02:57, 19 March 2015 by Mscottmoore (Talk | contribs) (Switched to "Basic Pronunciation" template)

Although the sounds that pinyin "c" and "z" make are not actually super foreign to speakers of English, there are two reasons they deserve special attention:

  1. The sounds "c" and "z" make are not the sounds they make in English
  2. Pronouncing the "c" and "z" sounds in Chinese is difficult for some learners
