Description of what is on the sound file:
These are pairs of sounds in Mandarin Chinese that might pose difficulties for learners to pronounce. All are pronounced in the first tone.

Xa, Ja, and Qa do not exist, so the diphthong ia had to be used instead.

does not occur on its own, and when combined with y, the two dots (diaeresis) are omitted.

You might need to turn up the volume to hear better.
