What is the difference between zh, ch, sh and r?


Roll up your tongue tip to touch the upper rear part in mouth.

2. 发zh的时候,口腔里面出来的气流非常少。

For zh, little airflow is coming out from your mouth.

3. 发ch的时候,口腔里面出来的气流很多,比发zh的时候多。

For ch, more airflow is coming out from your mouth than pronouncing zh.


For sh, your tongue tip should touch the upper part in mouth to let the airflow come out without any obstacles.


For r, on the basis of pronouncing sh, your vocal cords should vibrate.
