What is Mandarin Chinese?

Mandarin refers to Standard Chinese, and is also called Putonghua or Hanyu. Syllables could consist of an initial consonant, a vowel, a final, and a tone. There are four tones in the Pinyin system in Mandarin. The Chinese grammar is relatively simple compared to some other languages (most words have only one grammatical form). If you learn about the most frequently used 1,000 Chinese characters, you can cover 90% of the usage.
