Chinese pronounciation (not tones)

#1
I've found this site in another koohii thread about Mandarin:

http://www.sinosplice.com/learn-chinese/...in-chinese

I like his approach where he explains the mouth and tongue positions and movements.

Is there something like that but even more detailed? And which goes through vowels too? I've issues with two Mandarin vowels sound and I think that an explanation on where to put the tongue and how to move it would be helpful.

I don't know a better resource. Which sounds do you have trouble with?

Edit: Take a look here https://resources.allsetlearning.com/chi.../Main_Page and here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_vowel_diagram.

Thank you for your help!




I've trouble with "e" (20:16 in the linked video).
I have troubles with "en" (4:09) and "eng" (4:56) too, because they begin with that same "e".
I have troubles with "er" (5:13), I don't understand how to put the mouth for the final r sound. Is it similar to the english r?
I have little troubles with the "ü" sounds too, particularly the "ün" sound.

I wonder if I'll ever be able to pronounce them or maybe I'm not good with pronounciations in geneal (even my L1 pronounciation sucks, not to talk about my english pronounciation Sad  )
