This paper is based on the exploration of the effective method of erroneous phoneme pronunciation of Chinese mandarin learners whose mother tongue is Uyghur and the solution of major problems of language education, concerning the learner’s pronunciation, it uses a different method, namely data-driven approach, and the automatic speech recognition is also used to recognize phonemes of the pronunciation of Chinese mandarin learners. The phoneme sequence is identified and then the standard pronunciation phonemes corresponding to the recognized phonemes are used as the target phonemes to obtain the mapping relation of each target phoneme and recognition phoneme, thus the possible phoneme error categories and possible erroneous rules in pronunciation can be obtained, which may give some help to the learners to learn the Chinese auxiliary language system and the corresponding pronunciation evaluation model.
