Learning Pinyin

My favorite site for practicing pinyin pronunciation and tones was; however, it seems that site has been discontinued.

I've been looking for a new site that does an equivalent job of explaining and providing examples.  The next best site that I have found so far is  It breaks down the processes of learning pinyin into manageable steps.  It also provides examples of each of the sounds individually, within a word, and with each of the possible tones.  What is unique about this site is that it provides a video of what the articulators (teeth, tongue, palates, and lips) are doing during pronunciation.  The only downside is that the website was written by a non-native English speaker and you must sometimes figure out the intention of the sentences as the meaning is not always clear; however, examples are abundantly provided.
