A syllable in Chinese is composed of an initial, which is a consonant that begins the syllable, and a final (vowel), which covers the rest of the syllable.
Chinese is a tonal language. Mandarin Chinese has four pitched tones and a "toneless" tone. Different tones make different meaning.

Mandarin Chinese grammar is considered as the easiest one in the world.
One key feature of Chinese grammar is that all words have only one grammatical form. Chinese nouns do not have articles, such as "the" and "a/an" in English, nor do they have a plural form. Only one form of each verb exists, this makes memorizing "conjugation tables" unnecessary.
In normal Chinese declarative sentences, word order is the same as that of normal English declarative sentences, namely, subject – verb – object (SVO). There are other types of word order appearing in more complicated structures.
