Hi! Why does the Chinese pronunciation sound like 'pa' when it's actually ba? Please help


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BeBoBong

because it's an unaspirated voiceless [p], like p in "spy", but sometimes pronouced like b. In Mandarin and most other Chinese languages (e.g. Cantonese, Hakka) [p] [b] are the same, but the aspirated one [pʰ] will be marked as a different phoneme.

In some Cantonese dialects there are some phonemes like [ɓ] (=b in Vietnamese) and [ɗ] (=đ in Vietnamese), but it's another story.

Some b words are more likely pronounced as a "p" and the p sound are more likely pronounced as "b"

I don't get the "ne, me, xing" I don't know what they mean, but still they want me to remember the signs to that spelling without knowing the meaning..

Xing(姓) is surname

I was writing this character this way earlier in the lessons, and was marked correct. Later, I noted that the character changed and had a small horizontal line going left from the top of the right line, so naturally I changed it in my notes. Now, I am seeing this same character as it is here, without the small line at the top. Very confusing, as I am trying to learn characters and it is not helpful when they 'move the lines around'. Not the biggest problem, and too new to this language to comment a lot, but I did notice this. Has anyone else noticed the same thing?

我觉得问我“ba1"是什么字不公平。中文里有很多同音字。
