The Newgrounds (Xin Di) internet webpage company present an informative series on the teaching of a Chinese Language. He is very simple, so lazy American people can learn this useful world language.

These lesson is for the Mandarin (world language), not Cantonese (the People's language).

Chinese for Lazy American People
Lesson 1 : The important Chinese Tone.

= - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = -

10,000 thank you for Front Page ... Chinagrounds is good place to learn important lesson.


even though

yeah good or should i say Excellent explanation but even with those marks in it. Its still hard to find all those characters with that type of pronunciation. not to mention that there are about 64 characters and some of them just adding those 5 additional lines may or will change the meaning of the character which makes it MORE DIFFICULT to understand the entire thing. Imagine one line in a character could change everything. But wait there is more, the lines does not just make you change pronunciation but it also changes the meaning as well, PLUS not to mention that some Chinese characters HAVE THE SAME MEANING and with a few line changes it changes its full meaning. SO DIFFICULT.


I'm chinese, and this made my day :D

People find this review helpful!


I never fully understood how many tones there are in chinese but this flash makes it simple to understand. Serious props to the voice actor because I'm betting he had to invent/contrive his accent.

LMFAO funny as hell

LOL its only a matter of time WHITE DEVILS!


I will gladly learn Chinese, but I "only ask" the general Chinese Immigrants to speak U.S. Style of English as well. It takes two wheels to ride a bicycle my good man.

All in all, great flash. I'll keep watching on. :)
