North and South accent, which one is better? I'm also curious about how to pronounce some words, like "Xing, yuan, ..." and "r, j, zh" are hard to pronounce, I'm trying to practice.
I speak the same way they speak in my CDs (Northern accent). I don't have a choice.
Since you are from Vietnam, it might be better to speak like those around you. I heard some Vietnamese can speak Cantonese, so it seems the southern accent will be easy to come by for you.
Asking "which one is better?" is not really a good question when it comes to accents. It is, after all, a matter of opinion.
Learn Standard Mandarin.
You can make yourself understood by most.
We can't say which one is better.
If you are a chinese learner, plz learn official language.
