王的汉语发音太棒了! 希望认识你。我也学汉语2年了,说的还是不够好。

FYI -- there is an addon for firefox ChinesePera-kun, by Dave of CPOD. If you hover over the hanzi, it will give you definition (broad range) and the pinyin. This will help a little with learning characters too.

Thanks to Dave for this great tools, and to executer who put it in a post I happened to read.

Interesting lesson! I had never seen 您 before (that character is so easy to remember: just add a "heart" radical 心 to regular 你).

"bu" is pronounced on the second tone when it is followed by a syllable in the 4th tone, e.g. bu2 xie4 (Not at all); however, "bu" is pronounced on the 4th tone when it is followed by a syllable in the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd tone, e.g. bu4xin1 (not new), bu4lai2 (not come), or bu4hao3 (not good)

I felt very depressed when I learned incredibly complicated Chinese family titles for the first time, but instead I felt very pleased when I learned that days of the week in Chinese were so easy to remember. Otherwise, I would already have given up learning Chinese!
