First week was good. The teacher (Jessica) communicates well. Covered the pinyin system, initials and finals and tones. The tones seem a bit daunting right now.

The tones are really difficult for me, too. I have put the learning on hold, but a while ago when I was still doing it, I could identify the tone correctly and pronounce it right most of the time, but only for words/syllables in isolation - once there's a whole sentence, for me one tone just blends into another, and I struggle to distinguish it afterwards. Mimicking native speakers helps somewhat, but I feel it's going to be years of regular dedicated practice to reach any level of fluency.
