Chinese names can be difficult to say for English speakers (for example, try to say "Zixuan" or my name "Boxiao"). This website shows you the easiest way to say in English the names of your Chinese friends, neighbors, classmates, colleagues, students, subordinates, professors, managers, clients, business partners, competitors, and officials. Hopefully, this will reduce the communication barrier and make your neighborhood and workplace a little bit more diverse and inclusive than yesterday.
Simply enter the '''first or last name (not together)''' you want to search in the search box, and press Enter. Try "[[Zixuan]]", "[[Boxiao]]", "[[Beijing]]", and "[[Shanghai]]" to see how it works. The goal is not to teach you speak authentic Chinese, but to show you how to say Chinese syllables in their closest [[English pronunciations|English phonetic symbols]].
