            Cantonese pronunciation practice in the first section. A sir has a deep understanding of Mandarin and Cantonese as well as linguistics itself and has rich teaching experience. He can quickly point out problems and effectively counsel and correct pronunciation. I also feel that I have improved and solved the inherent pronunciation problems. Thank you Elton pointed.
