Online Pinyin exercises <p>  Anybody know a good website where I could train myself making sentences using pinyin? I have some issues to write the sentence in the correct order...</p>

<p>Let me add one more thing: If <em>correct sentence order</em> is your concern then it becomes totally hopeless. There is no website/software that can help you with that. I mean, look at https://translate.google.com and you see that even google seldom gets it right.</p> <p> </p> <p>I suggest you chat online with some advanced Chinese writers that can help you with that.</p> <p> </p> <p>你明白我的意思吗? ;-)</p>

<p>I think you are heading into a wrong direction. Pinyin IMHO is a good tool to romanize Chinese. For that it's rather good (well, Mandarin is in phonetic terms rather poor with just 420 or so possible sounds). Pinyin is too ambiguous to really make sense and becomes rather useless and tiring when the text gets longer.</p> <p> </p> <p>Why don't you simply install a Chinese IME? You type in Pinyin, and Chinese characters pop up. You get used to Pinyin AND the characters. </p>

<p>I mean I try to learn the Hanzi characters too in the meanwhile beccause I thinks it's very important. But I's very hard and long, And I thinking pinyin is usefull, at list at the beginning. I have learned a lot in English, or Spanish reading signs, advertisments, subtitles in the movies... For now I can not read chinese and I feel it's not helping me to learn...</p>
