So I’m sort of tone deaf, I can’t really hear them.
Constanyly focusing on trying to pronounce things correctly so people understand me.
“This October 10th, me and your President are having a meeting. I’m looking forward to it. (Don’t shake his hand)
For me, I think the hardest part is the order for two similar words.
Like “mi feng (bee) and feng mi (honey)”
Both sound exactly the same to me.
But they are two very different things.
I also remember some weird words like “ning zhi”.
It’s from Tang dynasty poet Bai Juyi’s The Song of Everlasting Sorrow.
It means someone’s skins are white and beautiful.
I don’t know why I’d remember words that I can’t even use now.
But then I would forget about words like, “la ji” (trash).
