English to Chinese translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase:My name is Daniel
I want to know how to say my name is daniel in chinese
Explanation: The numbers after each syllable indicate the "tone". In other words, when you pronounce "wo" (/wo/ according to the International Phonetic Alphabet) your intonation should first go down and then rise again. When you say "jiao" (pronounce each vowel), you should make your intonation fall abruptly, more or less as you do when you give a harsh order (stop! go!, etc.). Finally, your name: you may want yo pronounce it normally, or you may decide to turn it into a Chinese version by resorting to the form shown by my collegue above.
Hope it helps.
