m, f, n, l, h and sh are pronounced as in English.
d like "d" in "bed" (unaspirated)
j like "g" in "genius" (unaspirated)
z like "ds" in "beds"
zh like "j" in "job"
b like "p" in "spin" (unaspirated)
g a soft unaspirated "k" sound
x like "sh" in "sheep" but with the corners of the lips drawn back
r somewhat like "r" in "rain"
Particular attention should be paid to the pronunciation of the so-called "aspirated" consonants. It is necessary to breath heavily after the consonant is pronounced.
p like "p" in "pope"
t like "t" in "tap"
k like "k" in "kangaroo"
q harder than "ch" in "cheap"
c like "ts" in "cats"
ch (tongue curled back, aspirated)
Distinction between certain initials:
b / p d / t g / k j / q z / c zh / ch

ie like "ye" in "yes"
e like "e" in "her"
er like "er" in "sister" (american pronounciation)
ai like "y" in "by" (light)
ei like "ay" in "bay"
ou like "o" in "go"
an like "an" in "can" (without stressing the "n")
-ng (final) a nasalized soung like the "ng" in "bang" without pronouncing the "g"
uei, uen and iou when preceded by an initial, are written as ui, un and iu respectivly.
