To create a Chinese phrase dictation worksheet:
  1. Enter the title of the new worksheet, such as Lesson One Quiz. The title will be shown at the top of the generated worksheets. The title is required to save the list to the server for future use.
  2. Enter the Chinese phrase.
  3. Optionally, enter the English and Pinyin of the phrase. Click the P button to add Pinyin automatically. In the case that there are multiple pronunciations for a particular character, the system will attempt to use the right one based on its context. In some cases, the user may have to edit it. Do not use punctuation marks in the Pinyin input box. Note that Pinyin must be entered with tone numbers. The system will convert them to tone marks when the worksheet PDF is generated. In addition, the Pinyin syllables must be separated by a blank space. As an example, for the Chinese phrase 哪儿, the Pinyin must be entered as na3 er2. Use v for ü, for example lv3 for lǚ, and number 5 for the neutral tone, e.g. ma5 (吗).
  4. Click the Add Rows button to add more rows. Empty rows will be ignored on the generated worksheet PDF.
  5. Optionally, change the default worksheet settings. The settings are self-explanatory.
  6. Click the Print button to generate the worksheets.
  7. Optionally, click the Save button to save the phrase list to the server for future use or use it in a different tool
