How to set up my keyboard to type pinyin

When I am trying to type pinyin it is automatically converted to chinese. I want to write in pinyin before I write it in Chinese. Please let me know which should I select because there are many options in my list for Mandarin Chinese. I want to write all that I learn in Pinyin first then in Chinese .
For example
xie xie ni
