Beijing: How to Pronounce. How to say Beijing correctly: the first syllable sounds like American "bay", and the second syllable is like the first syllable of "jingle": bay-jing. If you try to make it sound more foreign or exotic by pronouncing the "j" in Beijing as "z" in "seizure", such as "Beizhing" - that would be incorrect. The correct pronunciation of Beijing is "Bay-jing" with "j" pronounced as in plain Jane. How to Pronounce Beijing. Hear several versions of proper pronunciation of Beijing from Forvo.com. Note: People who pronounce 'Beijing' with a French 'j' sound are pronouncing it wrongly. The French 'j' sound does not occur in Chinese.

"On October 16, 1916, Clara filed for divorce. In 1919 she was granted the divorce and received the Curtis' photographic studio and all of his original camera negatives as her part of the settlement. Edward went with his daughter, Beth, to the studio and destroyed all of his original glass negatives, rather than have them become the property of his ex-wife, Clara."
