Can not write Pinyin correctly in Exercise

August 07, 2014, 03:38 AM posted in General Discussion

Dear all,

I am just a newbie and I want to ask you guys a simple question.

When I take the Exercise in every lesson, I choose Pinyin mode because I am not familiar with Chinese characters.

But I can not know how to type into some boxes correctly. 

For example, they need me to type "lǎo shī" but I can only type "lao shi", that is not corerect, also I put in the chinese character 师, of course is not correct.

I am using OSX (Mac Air) and they had the Chinese keyboard already.

Can you teach me how to type correctly in the Exercise?

Thank you

Hi Nguyen,

I've not tried myself, but I think you probably need to add the tones as numbers, so for lǎoshī you would type lao3shi1.

Hope it works...

Dear Toianw,

You are right, I put the numbers as tones, and the system accepted that.

Thank you
