Dear friends,

We will keep on the Mandarin pinyin practice, and the topic this time is about  mā, má, mǎ, mà, ma Mandarin five tunes practice with some characters and related words. It's always the best way to exercise your pinyin pronunciations with all different variations together in the same time. Please watch the following video lesson carefully:



the 1st tune:  



here are the Chinese character and related phrase:

mom


mama, mother
媽媽
mā ma


note: for the word 媽媽(mama, mother) the 2nd character is light tune, just like you speak the word "mama" in English.




the 2nd tune:  



here are the Chinese character and related phrases:

numb


numb; insensitive

麻(numb) + 木(wood)


Please check the analysis about the meaning of each unique character for this lesson:


the 3rd tune:

qí mǎ


騎(ride) + 馬(horse)


the 4th tune: 



here are the Chinese character and related phrases:

大罵
dà mà


大(big) + 罵(scold)

Please check the analysis about the meaning of each unique character for this lesson:




the light tune:  ma



here are the Chinese character and related phrases:


question tag
ma

note: the light tune for this character is usually used at the end of an interrogative sentence, the pronunciation sometimes is the same as the 1st tune , but you don't need to worry about this kind of detail when speaking Mandarin. When this character  is put at the end of an interrogative sentence, you just use the 1st tune  and the Chinese people will understand your words.

the example phrase:

How are you?
你好嗎
Nǐ hǎo ma


你(you) + 好(good) + 嗎(ending tag)
