Nice song and nice lyric too.Thank you.

Bu changes from fourth tone to second tone when it is before a word that is pronounced fourth tone…i belive

I have taught the characters “白” and “红” to my little one, and I’d like to find a good way to help her learn other colors. Got any Mandarin lessons online for this?

Here are some Chinese characters for colors: “蓝(lán, blue), 绿(lǜ, green), 黄(huáng, yellow), 黑(hēi, black), 紫(zǐ, purple), and 粉(fěn, pink). “

Why does the word “不 bu” change its tone in different sentences? Are there any rules for it? Is this explained in any of your Mandarin lessons online?

This website is really a walk-through for the entire information you needed about this and didn’t know who to ask. Glimpse here, and also you’ll definitely uncover it.
