老(lǎo) 师(shī) 说(shuō): 在(zài) 这(zhè) 有(yǒu) 两(liǎnɡ) 只(zhī) 鸟(niǎo) 一(yì) 只(zhī) 是(shì) 麻(má) 雀(què) 一(yì) 只(zhī) 是(shì) 燕(yàn) 子(zi) 谁(shuí) 能(nénɡ) 告(ɡào) 诉(su) 我(wǒ) 那(nà) 只(zhǐ) 是(shì) 燕(yàn) 子(zi) 那(nà) 只(zhǐ) 是(shì) 麻(má) 雀(què)
学(xué) 生(shenɡ) 说(shuō): 我(wǒ) 不(bù) 能(nénɡ) 直(zhí) 接(jiē) 指(zhǐ) 出(chū) 他(tā) 们(men) 但(dàn) 是(shì) 我(wǒ) 知(zhī) 道(dào) 答(dá) 案(àn)
老(lǎo) 师(shī) 说(shuō): 请(qǐnɡ) 告(ɡào) 诉(su) 我(wǒ) 们(men) 答(dá) 案(àn)
学(xué) 生(shenɡ) 说(shuō): 燕(yàn) 子(zi) 旁(pánɡ) 边(biān) 的(de) 是(shì) 麻(má) 雀(què) 麻(má) 雀(què) 旁(pánɡ) 边(biān) 的(de) 是(shì) 燕(yàn) 子(zi)

Two Birds
  Teacher: Here are two birds, one is a swallow, and the other is sparrow. Now who can tell us which is which?
  Student: I cannot point out but I know the answer.
  Teacher: Please tell us.
  Student: The swallow is beside the sparrow and the sparrow is beside the swallow.

The tool does much help for Chinese learning, but it not one hundred percent right. So only when we improved our Chinese with some native Chinese teachers, we can recognize the wrong information from it. For example,
wǒ hěn ɡāo xìnɡ jīn tiān wǎn shàng ké yǐ shuì
ɡè hǎo jué le 。
我很高兴今天晚上可以睡个好觉了。
I am glad that I can have a good sleep tonight.
There is a mistake in this sentence when it changed to pinyin.
There are many poly phones in Chinese characters and they have different meanings.
shuì jiào
睡觉
So in last sentence, it should be jiào, shuì jiào means sleep.
jué dé
觉得 means feel.
wǒ jiào dé zhè gè hěn hǎo
我觉得这个很好。
I think this is good.
