comment Why is 那儿 just one syllable?
So you're saying (so far as you know) na4li3 (那里) is generally more common and should be preferred over the erhua-ized version, nar4 (那儿)?

comment Why is 那儿 just one syllable?
Now that I have read the whole thing, I can say for sure YES IT IS VERY HELPFUL. But, like, since I only know 那儿, I have no idea what 那里 is or sounds like, so I have to go look that up.

Your final sentence in that comment, relating to suggested replacements, I totally didn't understand at all. I don't know those characters/words yet. Could you make your comment into an answer so I can accept it? And maybe explain that sentence like you're talking to a 5 year old?

comment When making j, x, and q consonant sounds, where in the mouth does the sound get created?
Is /i:/ equal to sh/j/ch in English? I thought /i:/ was the vowel part.

comment Tips for pronouncing X vs SH in Mandarin?
This is such a clutch comment. So important to point out. I subconsciously suspected but hadn't really realized it til this comment.

comment When do I need 的?
So why did my friend tell me what I wrote is wrong? Is it just not idiomatic?

Okay, I knew that part, but why do I use the particle for one and not the other?
