Chinese Text, Pinyin, and English

The Chinese text appears with the pinyin transcription directly above each Chinese character. The English translation is shown right below each Chinese character as well so the beginner student can learn to recognize the meaning of individual Chinese characters while understanding at the same time the general meaning of the sentence or group of characters.

Because the stories selected here come from nursery rhymes and riddles for children, the Chinese vocabulary presented in this section is simple, useful, and of easy access to any beginner learner.
