I had a classmate called Xiaojia (Xiǎojiā I think). She told us how to pronounce it right, but I’m pretty sure she made compromises. Like, a lot of compromises.

That sounds about right. European languages don’t have tonality the way Asian languages do, so it can be difficult to say even the most basic things correctly in Chinese. Chinese is pretty gentle on language learners, all things considered. It only has four tones. I’ve heard of languages having as many as 12 tones. o_o
