PinYin
Review of the Previous Lesson

Whats Pinyin? Pinyin is spelling sound or phonetics of Chinese. It expresses the sounds in the Chinese language using the alphabet. Pinyin is also the most common way to input Chinese characters into a computer. Although Pinyin and English both use the alphabet, many letters are not expressed with the same sounds that English uses. We learned a as in father in Lesson 1.
