It's not just pronouncing, but remembering which words end with 'n' and with 'ng'. It's easy to mix them up as so many people get them wrong.


ok ! got it ! teacher's comment is pronouncing.. i correct this part first then work on the work with "n" & "ng"..

This is very useful for parents who wants to convert the Chinese words to get Hanyu Pinyin or Pinyin sound to get Chinese words.

http://m.nciku.com

Eg: You want to check what is the Hanyu Pinyin for 爷爷. Next, go to http://m.nciku.com to check for the translation from 爷爷 to yéye。

nciku also has the feature, but since there are so many homonyms in Chinese, you usually have to select from a list of possibilities.

Possible also. Can type in yeye and the Chinese words with the pinyin will appear. I use the iPhone to navigate around. I am unsure about whether it is 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th sound of pinyin though I can spell out the pinyin.

You may be asking why I need to check pinyin when there is answer key. Well, you see, my child learns normal Chinese in school, but at home I supplement with Higher Chinese so when I let her do the higher Chinese workbook, I do not have answer sheets at the back to check answer so I have to be resourceful and think of how I can be sure of the answer.

Actually Chinese-English dictionary apps can check for HYPY too. Faster & simpler way.

Yes, all K2 parents (kids born 2007) better not be lax with Chinese.
if not, next year 2014 P1 first half of the year (Jan - Jun), not only our poor child struggle hypy, we parents also struggle along.


Actually not only spelling and tone need be correct, you have to ensure all letters are written in small cap. My DS spelt all correctly including the tones all correct but teacher still mark wrong when one of the "y" was too big and looks like capital letter. He cried when asking Daddy to sign his tingxie book. In pre-school, it was not this strict so i was not aware of this.


Hi, would like to check is there a different way of writing the alphabet? My son wrote the letter q with the serif but was marked wrong.
