However, although Japanese and Chinese use Chinese character in the same way, their pronunciation varies widely, which is a major problem when Japanese learn Chinese. Although there are many Chinese teaching materials, it is still not easy for Japanese to acquire correct pronunciation. Therefore, we are developing a learning method to improve Chinese pronunciation for native Japanese speakers and learning material of Chinese pronunciation tool on the method. In this paper, we describe the result of investigation of the sensation state of Chinese language elements of Japanese native speaker who touched Chinese for the first time and the actual situation of learning of language elements by recognition experiment. Based on the results of the survey, we will develop a web-based pronunciation learning tool aimed at improving the learning efficiency of Chinese pronunciation and solving the shortcoming of the general method and describe the result of measuring the effect.
