Hi Nomin,
I’m so glad to hear from you. Learning a language requires a lot of practice. And you will learn it faster by correcting your mistakes. So do not feel embarrassed when you make mistakes. Correcting mistakes will allow you to make progress. As for Chinese tones, you may watch our Chinese Pinyin course to learn how to speak Chinese with the correct tones. I hope you enjoy our video lessons.
