Yesterday, I have introduced to you all on “你好吗 ? (nǐ hǎo ma)?”, today I would like to continue with this same phase, but the focus will be on the tone for this phrase.
The Mandarin tone change rules for this phrase is as follow:
“When a 3rd tone is followed by another 3rd tone, the first one becomes 2nd tone.”
For example: 你好(nǐhǎo => níhǎo).
Hence, when you pronounced this phrase, you will have to pronounce as:
Ok, I hope I you can remember this rule. You may practice to pronounce this phrase with your friend which is native speaker.
谢谢 (Xiè xie) – Thank you
再见 (Zài jiàn) – Good bye
