Third tone with other tones

When a third tone is followed by a first, second, fourth or neutral tone, the third tone should be pronounced as a low third tone. In other words it is a low sustained tone, as in jĭnzhāng and jiĕfng.  Both jĭn and jiĕ stay in the lower part of your voice and you dont move the sound up. Lets practise the following phrases.
