Am I choosing the best pinyin words/phrases to learn?

Postby NewUser » Wed Nov 29, 2006 5:20 am

I plan to burn a CD with sound samples from the talking dictionary website, and (try to) learn a few more basic words/phrases of Putonghua. Before I do I'd just like to be sure the pinyin I'm learning will be understood -- I've been told some words from that dictionary are usually only used in the written form and may not be understood, or misinterpreted, in the spoken form.

If there are any pinyin words/phrases in this list that have better replacements then please advise.


The list:

Thanks.
