Pinyin transcribes the Chinese characters so people can pronounce them. Pinyin is the foundation of Chinese language; it is essential and the most fundamental part for all Chinese learners. You will learn the three parts of which the Pinyin system is made up. Chinese is a tonal language; this implies that the tone you use when pronouncing a word can actually change the meaning of what is being said. For example, mà means scold, while mā means mother. You will learn the four tones in the Chinese language to enable you to communicate effectively in Chinese. You will learn how to use the right tone for the right word.
