Does the letter ‘z' sound the same as c in pinyin ?([tsʻ])
Best Answer - Chosen by the Asker
The German 'z' is pronounced in the same manner as the English 'ts' sound that is found at the end of words such as 'cats', 'lots' or 'sits'.
No, the two sounds are distinct. See http://www.archchinese.com/chinese_pinyin.html and listen to the pronunciation by a native speaker.
