i love your chinese or agypthian classes … but i still recommend the international phonetics – lol – maybe i’m biased, but the international phonetics alphabet is NOT biased 😉

I understand where you are coming from, but it’s still much easier for most of the people who actually watch these vids, as they are coming from a background in either language and it’s easier for them to cross over and look things on if they do continue. I am in no way an expert at Mandarin when it comes to sounds, and for the Egyptian, the sounds are approximate in the first place, though close to what they would have been.. I don’t feel right applying values like that to them.
