Hello. I'm new to learning the language and ChinesePod. I've noticed that when I do the practice exercises, I don't score points in the "Discussion" section where I have to listen and then type what I hear because my spelling doesn't contain the necessary tonal notations. Can some tell me how to achieve this using my keyboard? My current OS is Windows 7 Ultimate.

If you are taking the pinyin test on the dictation part of the page, you can type in the chinese like this:
> ni3 hao3
Since you are using Windows, you can follow microsofts instructions on adding an input language by clicking the link.
Hope that helps
