Hi, Alex! You said "Fu hou jie kuai le," what's that? And you said "give you some suggestion," but about what? I'm not sure about that? And "wo xiang gei yi ge jihui," you want to say that "I want to give (somebody) a chance," right? If so, you may need to add the object after "给(gěi)." :)

Hi Alex! Yeah, 复活节(Fùhuójié)! And I'm sorry for that last time I didn't see the audio, maybe because of some technique problems. I just listened this time, good as usual. I think you may notice the pronunciation of  j q when you speak Chinese. Can you upload audios about words with j q?  :)

Hi Alex! I listened to your audio. I'm not quite sure about a couple of words you said, like cloth, shot in Chinese. I also upload an audio about these words. "j" and "q" are two of the most difficult finals to pronounce for foreigners. So I guess that needs more practice. And one thing you should pay attention is "ju" or "qu", the "u" after "j, q" is actually "ü." So pay more attention about this one. If you got any problems, just let us know. BTW, we also got a series of lessons about pronunciation in Tone it up part, maybe you'll get something helpful there. :)
