    A great tool

    Most English pronunciations involve the tongue and the roof of the mouth.

    Chinese involves the tongue and the floor of the mouth.

    The tongue is a muscle. Don't laugh, you have no idea how many Chinese do not know this. They have no idea that they need to retrain a muscle.

    A great tool is provided by the University of Iowa.
