What is Pinyin?

Pinyin is the system of symbols for the phonetic notation of all Chinese characters.

Learn Mandarin easily with the help of Hanyu Pinyin!

It is very important for beginners to learn pinyin well. As we know that every Chinese character has its Pinyin,  helps both foreigners and native Chinese speakers learn and understand the language. 

When we learn words in Mandarin Chinese, we learn both how to say it and how to write it. You are not encouraged to just learn the Hanyu Pinyin. That is because many Chinese characters share the same syllable, you can get confused easily. For example, there are several Chinese characters have the pronunciation zài, such as 在(zài,at)and 再(zài,again). If you did not understand the difference in writing and meaning between 在(zài,at)and 再(zài,again),every times you hear the pronunciation of zài,you will find it easy to confuse.

Definitely there are a lot of benefits of learning Hanyu Pinyin.It allows beginners to start speaking Chinese quickly, to pronounce a word properly. Once you learn pinyin, you can begin to type Chinese on a computer.
