Here, we can use English pronunciation of letter quot;iquot; as one example. Tone 1: flat In English, it is the default tone we use to pronounce 'i' emotionlessly as in saying quot;I am ....quot; . The audio material will show flat tone 'i', and how 'i' would sound on other tones as if with strong emotions although you should keep in mind that in Chinese, tones have nothing to do with meanings or emotions. Tone 2: up This tone is a little like the tone used in English for questions. For example: quot;Is he right?quot; The tone of quot;iquot; used in word 'right' here is equivalent to the up tone used in Chinese. Tone 3: curve There is not exact equivalent for Tone 3 in English. However, Tone 3 can be delivered through a quick combination of tone 4 and tone 2 in a very quick way. Remember, tone 4 before tone 2. So maybe you want to learn to use tone 4 first. Tone 4: down The 4th tone is what you will use when saying quot;rightquot; as in quot;Yes, he is right.” Four tones together: All vowels can be pronounced in 4 tones. It can be a great practice to play it on your own language.    Copyright 2007 cchello.com
