Well you can choose this in settings->language and input->add language->chinese Pinyin (as you type the latin script, it will automatically convert into Chinese ones)
I think Duo should also allow people to type the pinyin version, especially for those who don't want to deal with switching back and forth with their keyboard settings.
Good question, I'd like to know too! I've tried writing the answer in the latin script and no luck, and I've also tried following the same advice to change the keyboard as I followed when I was learning Russian, but it doesn't work the same. As it is I'll have to stick to using the word bank instead of the keyboard.
Study or go to settings and change your keyboard to chinese writing or somthing hopefully that was helpful probly not
I downloaded swiftkey keyboard for android( just because it's a better keyboard than the native). You can also change your input methods and add simplified/traditional chinese so a pinyin/drawing input method will be available.
你好! The 好 character xan be used in the same manner of English or is it wrong to describe food this way??
I feel like I'm in an endless loop.
There are literally only three words in this lesson. [2019/03/26]
You can install the Chinese keyboard onto your computer, find hanyu pinyin keyboard. And from there you can select the Chinese keyboard from your desktop. (You can Google, or Youtube it for an easy step by step guide).
Then you can type nihao (你好).
你 is you 好 is good.
好 on its own can also be used for good, okay, fine etc.
Will this course repeat the same thing over and over again for each part? I've been getting Hello and goodbye up till now..
Not sure about iOS but if you're are using Android you can download the pinyin input keyboard on the play store also you might be able long press the space bar to switch and download
You need to change your keyboard language in settings, just add Chinese as the second languagea and then you can write caracteres (hanzi) just tipping their respective pinyin.
Yes, Mandarin, although the symbols themselves are mostly the same. It's just the pronunciations that are different. [2019/03/26]
I tried changing my setting to able to get chinese as a second language but it wldnt go. How to i do it?
don't call people stupid if you cant even type right. i mean seriously "do you are have stupid" thats so bad
What is the point of having to install Chinese language to your keyboard, when you still type in the pinyin anyway? Why not just accept the pinyin Duolingo?
So 你好 directly transelated is "you good". Is it meant to be like that, or is that just the way it worked out...?
