Standard Chinese spelling system using Roman alphabet. Literally translates as "spell sound". In modern Chinese education, children are taught to read and write pinyin before learning hanzi (Chinese characters).
If it weren't for pinyin, there would be no way I could ever learn how to speak Chinese by reading it.
