What is Chinese Pinyin?

Chinese Pinyin is a Roman-letter based system that China now uses to mark the pronunciation of Chinese characters. That is to say, Chinese Pinyin is a way to represent Chinese characters and express the sounds in the Chinese language using the alphabet. There are other systems that are used to write Mandarin, but Chinese Pinyin is presently the most accepted and widely used method. Once you learn Chinese Pinyin you will know how to pronounce any word in Mandarin using a Chinese dictionary. Chinese Pinyin is also the most common way to input Chinese characters into computers. Having mastered the four tones and Chinese Pinyin, you will be ready to say every Chinese character properly.
