For a long time English speakers have been put off learning Chinese, because it is a tone language and also because the pronunciation system to spell Chinese words in Romanization is different from that of our daily colloquial English. In China, the system they use is called Pin Yin . Pin means spelling, gather together, or assemble; YIN means sound. For example, to use keyboard to type the two Chinese words meaning THANK YOU is to key in " xie xie ". The pronunciation of letter " x " in Chinese spelling Pin Yin is very similar to the pronunciation of sh as the "sh" in " she ". Most importantly, When learning Chinese, please remember it is very important to memorize the characters together with their meanings. You don’t have to learn to write but you definitely need to learn to identify the words with their meanings. Learning Pin Yin is very simple. All you need to do is to familiarize yourself with the pronunciations of a few vowels and a couple of strange consonants like those in the following then you can do the conversions. Please do not be alarmed when you see half of the book is blank. The author intentionally left the upper half of each page for you to insert your own notes with.
