Pinyin Institute of Sound

In this section people learning to speak proper Mandarin will first learn the use of sounds and tones. The Roman alphabet is best suited for languages rooted in Latin or other related European languages. The sounds in Chinese are totally different, so that one looking at Roman letters applied to Chinese sounds is going to have to view the new sounds these letters make from a different perspective. Many of the sounds in Chinese are "Unvoiced" rather than "Voiced Sounds". Chinese only make use of twenty three letters in the Roman alphabet. The V sound is missing. The Chinese dont make that sound. There are two lessons in "Easy Chinese". Try these two lessons. If you have any problems with sound and tone then you need to learn Pin Yin first. CLC

Institute of Vocabulary

The purpose of these lessons is to build vocabulary and make simple sentences. On the Pinyin side we learned the basic sounds and tones used in Chinese Mandarin. Those sounds and tones will help you build correct and meaningful vocabulary. If at anytime you should have trouble learning a lesson then go back and review Pinyin sounds and tones in column one. Any other questions you may have may be answered at the "Seemile Learn Asian Laguage" website. CLC
