In this post I have removed the English and all the recordings are Mandarin only. There is my try at the phrase, then Angela does the phrase in Mandarin, the phrase with a one second pause between each word, the phrase in two parts, and then each word by itself.

By listening carefully to each word by itself it makes it easier to learn how to pronounce them. From there you can work one of the two phrases at a time and then when you have the two phrases down you can put them together and listen to the full phrase. This way seemed to work well for me.

Here is my try before I knew there were tones. I will be working on the tones later.
