Fantastic that was the last one. But he listened to the difference here by but he, so it has the same ending, but it starts more aggressively going down and then sort of like a stop. But he but he, but he but he by the quicker you see obviously the less tangible it is. Okay? He Oh son call by an by or just turn little canoodle car noodle or Kennedy. Fantastic.

Now you've been introduced to all the different tunes, the four of them. And now I want to tell you how important they are. They're very important. And now I need to tell you how much you need to study them. Don't really study them might sound a bit contradictory. But if you think of it, we already have our number one helper when we listen to Chinese people, it's context, we can definitely tell that it's 100 bytes and not white bikes, not white bikes, it's 100 bikes and there might be white later on.

So that is the context and then the second thing They will tell apart his tunes simply. So how about when you speak them? Well, when you speak, I want you to don't think do not think about the tones. Because if you think of the tones, and this drags people down a lot, and they start thinking about the tones, they want to make it fantastic and accurate and perfect simply and no one's perfect. I'm, I'm far away from perfect and I don't want you to be perfect either. So start pronouncing things.

And what happens when you start pronouncing things is either they're not going to either not there, they're going to understand you and they're going to think that you're Chinese is fantastic. And then you don't have to work on the turn because it came naturally. If you think of it English actually has terms as well. We don't speak very monotone, yet monotone. It's like, how do we differentiate between different characters in speech? That was one tone, no, we we make it a bit more fluent and we add tones in our own language as well.

So if I pronounced the word different, different, like different or different or different, then we know that one of them is correct. By having heard it enough times, and this is this, this will happen to our Chinese tones as well to Chinese words, the word E, if someone starts pronouncing like E, you'll start going. And thereby, you've also proven to yourself that you know the tone for e. So what happens when you speak is they're either going to understand you, and then you already perfect something that I've never been, or they're not going to understand you. And then they're going to look at you like this. And then they'll help you with the tone. And then what will happen then is that you'll never make the same mistake again.

Because you were corrected, you have something to relate to in your memory. And you'll know that oh, this is the first time and you'll also understand that it's important that you pronounce this word, this word particularly that they've connected you on to pronounce it correctly because this one you struggle with simply. So if you don't struggle with something, if there's no problem, don't solve it simply, if there is a problem, if you realize that there's a problem. If you discover it, then fix it and then they're there to help you as well. So that's how I'd like you to To face all of the Chinese words from now on, just speak to them. And if you make a mistake, it's because you like to speak.

It's because you're not shy, and it's because we're all imperfect.
