你好Limlehwa! Unfortunately there is no real rule for learning these. You just have to get used to the sounds and the more you listen to them, the clearer the will become. Don't try and overload your brain though, just take little (but consistent) steps at a time and you will find in no time that things will become a lot easier. Keep up the good work! 加油! - Lin Ping
