Does it really sound natural when one puts "的" in a sentence like that? I mean that, from what I heard, I should ommit "的“ when I talk about close family members. Isn't it true?
这 is pronounced correctly now on this DISCUSSION page, but in my lesson it isn't. 这 or Zhè has a LOW TONE, and in my lesson so far, a few words had è and the voice was not saying them with LOW TONE. @____@ How do I know? Took a semester of Mandarin in college and stayed a month in Beijing. I wonder if the 这 said in the lesson is some kind of dialect lol. I mean 这 is an everyday word, I have heard used in speech, in real life and in movies/shows all the time. 这 is not supposed to have a rolling sound.
