Some people say that in order to master Mandarin language, the only way is to first learn Han Yu Pin Yin. I disagree with this viewpoint. Let’s talk about using the dictionary as a point of discussion. 要真正的掌握华文，唯一的办法就是要先学习拼音。我不赞成这观点。就从查字典的角度来谈吧。
Contrary to popular belief, taking notes does not improve memory. It merely helps us store information in auxiliary memory, analogous to data and information in the computer which is stored for future use. I never understood this logic until recently when I wanted so badly to FORGET things I don’t want to remember.
