About the Tables
Now you are at a higher level. Try to say these words before clicking on the words. It is always a good idea to differentiate similar-sounding words carefully. There are many homophones in Chinese, so although the words in these tables have translations, it is not important to learn them at this level. There may be other meanings for that sound, though the characters will be different.  But if you think knowing the meaning of a word will help you to remember the sound, you can place your mouse on the word, and a small window with the English translation will appear.
