English-Chinese

I have been trying to learn Mandarin so that i can preach and teach in this tonal language.
Its been hard on my English tongue! and eyes! Writing is even more challenging in this "super difficult" language. No offense meant!

So I am taking the chicken way out! Hanyu Pinyin. Romanized Chinese.
Below are some of the words that various people have taught me. Most of them are the commonly used Christian terms.

I know there are more than these words. Please do not hesitate to send them, especially the commonly used terms among Christian circles. (Reply using the comment section)


If u know the hanyu pinyin, do write it down. If not, its fine. Just write the English and the various Chinese "experts" will contribute the hanyu pinyin.

If you think the hanyu pinyin spelling is wrong, please send the correct spelling! It will help me and others who are learning Mandarin. May be it can become a simple guide book later on.

I hope to preach a simple Mandarin sermon next year (2008). Pray for me! And for the Chinese language lovers, lament for them! They will cry and put ashes on their head when I "slaughter" the language! :))
