Master Pin Yin under 10 minutes 十分钟学拼音

A lot of people ask me, where to start with learning Chinese, and for most adult learners, my recommendation is to learn Pin Yin.

Pin Yin is the equivalent of phonetics symbols in English, it allows you to better understand the sounds of characters, and learn to read characters you have never seen.

Thankfully Pin Yin is very easy to learn if you know the English Alphabet, and we can cover all of them in a brief 7 minutes video.

Note that because English and Chinese are two completely languages, the example English words may not have the exact same sound as the pin yin themselves, especially for vowels. Although I did try my best to find the closest possible. Listen to how the Chinese example characters are read for the proper sound, and use the English word examples as a reference only.
Hopefully with this video, you will then get to listen to many more audio resources and practice your pin yin. The more you listen and try to speak, the better you will get.

学习中文(普通话)的基础是汉语拼音。对于喜欢中文,想要学习中文的朋友们,我一般都会建议先从拼音学起。汉语拼音可以让你能够读出不认识的生词,让你能够用中文输入法打字,也可以从字典和google上去了解更多的字和句子,更重要的是学起来真的很简单!只要你懂英文的26个字母,或者懂一点英文,那你就能读懂汉语拼音。
