Here is the reason I don’t use Lingq to learn to speak and understand Mandarin Chinese:
There is no pinyin. I want to learn to speak and understand using the Lingq system, but instead I am stuck learning characters.
I want to make pinyin lingqs.
Please add this feature.
I am not aware of a pinyin dictionary, perhaps others out there are.
If you google pinyin converter you will find lots of resources to convert our lessons to pinyin to help you. We will in the future provide a pinyin version for our beginner texts but I cannot tell you when.
The LingQing and dictionary resources will continue to be based on characters. We have no immediate plans to change this.
Sorry if LingQ does not suit your style of studying.
