    basically, [1]: to learn Chinese, there are 2 stages : [1a]: Pin-in pronounciation system : [ i.e. East-Latin writing, and [1b]: further stage : a graph-image "bu-sou" , one image as a symble to represent one portion of a Chinese single-word. in the begining : 2 bu-sou be combined as one single word. you have to learn all the almost 214-units of these parts, [2a]: for Pin-in pronounciation, one single Chinese word are combined by 3 parts. i.e. one single word is a single syllable. and the structure of this single syllable more simple than a syllable in English word. [2b]: the structure of a Chinese word = { I: consonant as heading + II:vowel in Centrol +III: a consonant or a semi-vowel as a closing-portion } , [2c]: based on this [ {I+II+III}+ 5 tones ] = one single syllable structure, you may learn re: how to speak Chinese correctly. [3a]: once you fully understand vowels and consonants, you start to learn 214 bu-sou, one by one. [3b]: as 214 units are all in image/graph, it takes time to be remembered/ be memorized by yourself. no one can help you. [4]: once you may understand these 214 units bu-sou. you may fully independent to learn Chinese language with any dictionary: [ Chinese-English, English-Chinese ] by yourself. [5]: once your achievement : to understand more than 2,500 words.means that you grow up already. wish you with great patience to life-time learning on Chinese language.

    Chinese is arguably the most difficult language to read and write. There are over 100,000 characters. Often each character will take on multiple meanings and pronunciations. But it is doable, and reading is certainly worth while. Please check out my suggestions for self learners: http://paulgillett.posterous.com/guideline-to-learning-chinese-a-self-learners
