Why so thorough?

Why would one want to do so much for correct pronunciation of Chinese?

There are several factors to consider. Maybe the weightiest reason would be that the native Chinese speakers appreciate correct pronunciation far more than correct grammar. That is quite reasonable, just consider what the benefit of having perfectly correct grammar is, if none of the words is understood.

Second, if you get the pronunciation wrong from the beginning, it will be a lot harder to correct later. What adds to that point, is the fact that Chinese pronunciation does have a few similarities with English, but it does also have quite a few difficult differences.

My third good reason is a bit softer, but not to be neglected though. When you have good pronunciation, the Chinese will commend you for speaking their language very clearly and being easy to understand, adding to your self-confidence, and encouraging you to continue extending your vocabulary and knowledge of grammar.

All these benefits of good pronunciation can be enjoyed using the Standard Mandarin software, it allows you to hear how to pronounce. Through this website it is even possible now, to learn chinese pronunciation online.
