Why is xi pronounced "she" instead of "shure"?
008klm 1 year 11 months ago
Xi is pronounced like "shee" as in "sheep". You may check out our Pinyin lesson 12 and Pinyin Chart for more info. Feel free to let us know if you have any further question.

Oh! OK, right, I see - it is only when the "i" is used as a "filler" (zhi, chi, shi, ri) that there is an "r" sound, but when the "i" is used as the vowel they are pronounced as "ee". TY!

Yes, that's right. :)

Thank you for the wonderful video! I had always had difficulty with Chinese tones, but the exercises with the tone pairs are great! I had never even seen a chart like that before and now I can't stop using it. It's a wonderful practice tool! Thanks Yangyang!

Hi Yang Yang! Thank you so much for your work,after years trying to learn Chinese in vain but since I found you on youtube, I feel hopeful because you are the best teacher of this impossible language to me. It is even more difficult to make your lessons because I'm from Argentina and we speak Spanish, but no matter, I am strengthening my English too. I'm moving to China in August with my husband (he is Chinese) and our two daughters, my first time there, wish me luck! Don't let me, I'so scared!
