For a beginners course surely you should use pinyin.

Thank you. Normally, jumping right into a language Duo Lingo style is great! - However for this, I felt first some fundamentals should be learned. lol.

I started learning Chinese not with 你好 or pinyin. I learned stuff like 一二三四五(12345) first and Im sure it's probably more basic. Besides its kind of a waste of time doing a whole chapter of 你,好 &你好。

Is this similar to romaji for Japanese? The consensus in that community is that romaji is a crutch that will hinder you later on. But, as Japanese kanas almost always sound the same, it may be different.

Honestly, when we did intensive language courses in China, you learn pinyin for one lesson, and that was it. You learn the pinyin of a character, but the most important is the tones of the character (especially when speaking).

Pinyin is basically the letters that represent each character. I really recommend everyone to find an online lesson and learn the pronunciation and grouping of pinyin first! (It really helps later on)

Whats pinyin

March 20, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ethical.Sun

☀️ the roman transcription for chinese. Fir example «Nǐ hǎo» is the pinyin for «你好»

April 9, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NatashaSha386361

So pinyan is basically transliteration?

May 3, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gabor9921

Yes, pinyin is the most widespread Western (Latin) transliteration of Chinese.

June 18, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GabrielGon181722

And zhuyin?

January 7, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AloeSoothe

Pinyin is a device created after PRC founded in 1949 in order to help people pronounce Mandarin Chinese and promote education.(People in different regions of China speak 100+ languages/dialects, among which there are 30+ written ones.)

Thanks to the missioners from Italy (eg: Matteo Ricci 1552-1610), France (eg: Nicolas Trigualt), & Britain (eg: Robert Morrison/ Thomas Wade), and the 19th-century Chinese phonologists, the pinyin we use today is composed of Latin alphabets and four tones. #PS. The first try of phonetic notation for Chinese characters was not Latin but Arabian.

Anyway, learn pinyin as Mandarin 101 so that you can look up any character, word, and idiom in dictionaries without any help from others.

May 17, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/roofygroundy

Write the character by yourself, you will learn faster and gain more understanding. This language is really unique, it has 4 different tones which give different meaning as it applies to a character. Learn how to write and speak it. Soon you will master it.

Hi. I have a question concerning this course. I have a method of my own to study Chinese. I would like to study Chinese without the characters to an intermediate levels. Could this course be modified in a way that one could study it through by writing Pinyin when Chinese script is required?

I have also another question: I already know some basic Chinese with Pinyin: Maybe some 500 words or so. I don't know exactly. I would like to write with Pinyin with my Chinese friends. I don't want it to transform into Chinese characters. How could the all the tones be written with my Finnish keyboard setting? I have tried to find for hints from internet but I haven't found anything. I already can write the second and the fourth tone with a letter and a mark combination, for example: à and á. When I write Chinese I need to write the third tone upside down with my keyboard: â. And the first tone I just mark like a1: So for example. Jin1 tian1 wô zài xué hànyû gen1 wô de péngyou.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KX3.

Not sure if I understand correctly, but you can select Chinese keyboard software from the language settings of your computer or smart phone. Its better to type characters directly with them, since you know their hanyupinyin it will be a little easier, it's better for your language learning journey in the long run anyway.

If you're on Windows 10: Go to the Settings, select Time and Language, and then Region and Language on the side. Click "Add a language" and search for Chinese. (If I'm correct, this is simplified Chinese, China.) If you want to add handwriting as a function, click on the added language, options, and download "Handwriting." Then restart your computer. You should be able to change the language you type in on the taskbar.

If you run something that isn't Windows 10, you can look it up, or do something similar in Control Panel, I assume.
