Mandarin Chinese 11.21.13

I started the Rosetta Stone Mandarin Chinese course today. So far I'm having trouble pronouncing some of the sounds but I'm starting to grasp word meaning. So here are the words I remember as close as I can get to what they sound like to me.

nu ren - woman
nan ren - man
nu hi zi - girl
nan hi zi - boy
you yong - swim
pao bu - run
hu - drink
ni hao - hello
si chen - goodbye
kan - read
shu - book
shuay - water
che - tea

As I learn more I will try to put in a few complete sentences.
