comment How is the 儿 ending pronounced outside Beijing?
@NS.X., 抠门儿 is a Beijing dialect which many may not understand. The real test, I think, is to hear people pronounce simple things like 小玩儿.

comment What is the difference between 看不起 and 看不上?
@congliu, I think there was a discussion somewhere on Meta. Though not mandated, if the question was asked in English, the answerer is expected to provide an explanation in English to be helpful to the OP. Maybe this could be highlighted on the FAQ since many people are answering without giving due consideration whether the OP can understand or not.

comment How is the 儿 ending pronounced outside Beijing?
People in the south or outside China tend to avoid 儿化音. I find it irritating to the ear (sorry, if it offends someone) and unnecessary. Instead of 哪儿, we can use 哪里. Instead of 一块儿; we can use 一起. For most of the other phrases such as 一点儿, we simply drop the 儿 without losing the meaning of the word.

comment Are there any free fonts designed to help learn/read Chinese?
Even at beginner level, you can't avoid learning characters with multiple pinyin. For someone to create a glyph for every Ruby annotation on top of each character, a private class of code points in Unicode would be required. This task would be too immense (considering the number of Chinese characters) and too specialized (considering a special set of code points) to be offered free of charge to anyone.
