I’m an ABC, but Mandarin is my fourth language. My parents are Cantonese,so I know they have an accent too. So if they tried to teach me proper Chinese, it would be like an Italian guy trying to teach an Indian guy how to speak proper English. (I imagine the results won’t be spectacular).
So is there anyone whose family is from Beijing, or otherwise knows that he or she speaks perfect Mandarin, who would like to help me with my accent on Skype?
