Pinyin is expressed in the letters of the English alphabet, and it is used for Chinese pronunciation.

By learning Pinyin first, you can focus your efforts on listening to and speaking Chinese from the beginning. You will be surprised at how soon you can speak, read and write Chinese!
The tones in Chinese
In English, we can use the tone of our voice to change the meaning of a sentence. For example, "You're going to school." is a simple statement of fact. By raising your tone and saying "You're going to school?", you are changing the sentence into a question. Chinese has 4 tones and toneless tone. Usually, for a Pinyin, if the tone changes, the meaning of the Chinese character or Chinese word represented changes as well. The 4 tones are shown in Pinyin by using one of the 4 tone marks over a vowel. To learn more about Pinyin, please refer to Pinyin Course.
