2.Pinyin-Consonants

Consonant Table:

b p m f d t l n
g k h j q x    
z c s r        
zh ch sh y w      


For consonants, we also put all these into English words with the same sound for you to learn and remember in an easier way.

b – as the “b” in “book”

p – as the “p” in “pool”

m – as the “m” in “moon”

f as the “f” in “food”

d – as the “d” in “door”

t – as the “t” in “tom”

n – as the “n” in “no”

l – as the “l” in “love”

g – as the “g” in good”

k – as the “k” in “kill”

h– as the “h” in “high”

j– as the “j” in “jeep”

q– as the “ch” in “cheese”

x– as the “sh” in “sharp”

z– as the “z” in “zero”

c– as the “ts” in “tsunami”

s– as the “s” in “sun”

r– as the “r” in “red”

zh– start with ‘j’ in “jeep”, but then end smoothly with “r” sound. The first 2 sounds in the sample voice show such move.

ch– start with ‘q’ in “cheese”, but then end smoothly with “r” sound. The first 2 sounds in the sample voice show such move.

sh – start with ‘x’ in “sharp”, but then end smoothly with “r” sound. The first 2 sounds in the sample voice show such move.

( ‘zh, ch, sh’ are similar to, but strictly different from ‘j, q, x’ respectively. However, mixing them is not a too big problem for you to be understood in China.)

y– as the “y” in “yes”

w– as the “w” in “wood”

Pinyin1-Vowels
Pinyin3-whole syllables

    Chunking. That’s a great way to learn consonants and veowls Talen. Slow and sure makes the ah hahs’ easier to realise. I remember back when I discovered that Thai veowls were not only in front, behind, top, and bottom, but there were invisible veowls as well! AWK!!I say AWK!! AWK!! a lot when studying Thai.I’m one of those learners who has to read as well as hear to get things into my head, so I found the e-Learning resource at Sriwittayapoknam a help.Here’s lesson one: dekgeng.com/thai/lesson1.htmlCatherine recently posted..
