  1. In Chinese pinyin, you should raise your tongue and push against the back of your lower teeth lightly, but the lips should be rounded all the time.

  2. Yes, but when this final is pronounced with these three initial constants (j, k, x), you should delete the two dots on the top of it, such as ju, xu in the Chinese pinyin alphabet.
