comment Resources for learning Mandarin Chinese
what is imepeding you from ? your score ? I could add this, but without verifying it's true use, I feel really awkward. Maybe we should ask a CL moderator. I'm trying to flag you comment as something worth attention, I hope it's ok.

comment Adding tone marks to characters
@OlleLinge also consider, I find numerical tones much more easy to remember than graphical tones. I stopped learning with graphical accents. I use numbers now. Probably because of visual memory. But intimately, I personnally think it's because the impact of the number that is bigger visually than a little ` or the other accents, that can be confused.

comment What is the pronunciation of 行 according to its context?
it's so strange how these two have completely diverged. Mandarin 行 is composed of left step, one and nail while cantonese 拼 is composed of hand, open and separation... I I can see in the cantonese meanings that these are related, but they look so different ?!

About the two consonants being aspirated... do you really mean breathing air IN while pronuncing ?.

comment Pronunciation of 一 in 一个
@Lix Indeed there is 5. 1: tone up to tone up, 2: tone down to tone up, 3: tone down to even more down then to tone up, 4: tone up to tone down, 5: short neutral tone. cf: ma, ba, ne, ge, zi, er... according the notation, they are written 0, 5, or just nothing.
