Compared with your latest video, I noticed your Chinese accent has changed. On this video, you showed some Taiwan or so called southern accent. But now your Mardrin is pretty standard. You would use some Northern tone, like er-accent. It must due to your study and work environment in recent years in China,haha!

+Chris Parker Yes, very interesting change, Lol. BTW, I should say 新婚快乐. Waiting for your new videos.

Study Russian with Pavel
+Chris Parker My pleasure, Chris! =)) Looking forward to new videos about Chinese! ;-) And, please, do not give up your Russian, should you have free time! =))
Study Russian with Pavel
+Chris Parker Hi, Chris! =)) Oh, really? =)) You're right, it isn't ! =)) Even us, native speakers sometimes argue which is the more correct way to say, this or that? ;-) Enjoyed your way of teaching Mandarin as your approach does make more complicated aspects easier! ;-)

You have impeccable pronunciation in all the languages~
Ro Calvo
+Yoona Lee No he doesn't. Now why would you say that. I don't think its any help at all lying to a person. I can only speak for the french and spanish. He does very well, but the pronunciation is far from being impeccable, specially his spanish. I am sure he would want to know how good it really is, and not just people saying its impeccable, ( And CHRIS, i admire your endurance and your passion! keep on learning! :) I just saw right now that this comment is one year old. I bet you have improved a lot by now)

your cantonese is awesome and amazingly you learnt the cantonese accent!
TheHorrorDevotee
Your French is really good ^^ But at times, it's kind of like you're speaking it with a Chinese accent~
TheHorrorDevotee
It's not a bad thing, it sounds quite charming actually X3

C'est vrai, l'apprentissage d'une langue est essentiel pour comprendre d'autres cultures et à élargir nos horizons ! Vous me montrez le bon exemple, merci !

It's really inspiring watching your videos about language learning. You've got a talent in language. I'm a native Mandarin speaker, and since I took my undergraduate education in Guangzhou, so i am pretty much good at Cantonese now. However, as for English and Spanish, i get quite nervous when speaking them. My spoken English has been improved  a lot since i came to Edinburgh last year. However, my Spanish gets worse since i seldom use it. Could you please tell me some effective ways to learn Spanish especially how to pronounce the "r"and "rr"sound in the right way? Would appreciate a lot if you can help me out.
Zeng Ju
+Chris Parker Thank you for the reply. How did you get the sound"rr"right? Any method in practicing? I tried the keeping water in throat one, but failed, so disappointed. Btw, the Chinese lunar new year is coming, hope you can enjoy it and make some true friends in China.
