Congratulations and welcome to the end of the course!

Thank you for spending the past three weeks with us and finishing our course. We learned all the pronunciation and tones of Chinese Pinyin. Let’s have a review of the initials and finals we learned.

  • Initials: b p m f d t n l g k h j q x zh ch sh r z c s
  • Finals: a o e i u ü ai ei ao ou ia ie iao iu ua uo uai ui üe an en in ian üan uan un ün ang eng ing ong iang uang ueng iong er

Using these initials and finals and tones you can read all the syllables in Chinese. Hope you gained what you expected from our course and hope you can use Pinyin to continue your Chinese study!

The next course in this series is Introduction to Chinese: Conversation. We hope to see you on this course soon!
