              We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

              After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

              The official language of the PRC is Putonghua or " Common Speech ", usually referred to the west as " Mandarin Chinese".

              Chinese is a tonal language, a language with many homonyms ( words of different meaning but with similar pronunciation ). Mandarin has four tones:
              First tone ( - ): the voice is pitched quite high,High and level;
              Second tone ( / ): the voice rises rather like asking a question,rises to the top;
              Third tone ( V ): the voice dips and then rises;
              Fourth tone ( \ ): the voice starts at the top, then falls away.
              Below is an example of how the tones change the meaning:

              Tones Pinyin English Chinese
              First tone ( - ) mother
              Second tone ( / ) hemp
              Third tone ( V ) horse
              Fourth tone ( \ ) to scold

              If you use the wrong tones, your listeners may not be able to understand you.

              Pinyin ( spell & sound )
              In 1958 the Chinese offically adopted a system known as pinyin as a method of writing their language using Roman alphabet. Pinyin is a romanization and not an anglicization; it makes use of Roman letters to represent sounds in Standard Mandarin. The way these letters represent sounds in Standard Mandarin will be different from other languages that make use of the Roman alphabet represent sound. Pinyin is quite useful in China, especially in majior cities, on shop fronts, street names and advertising etc. When Chinese people write their own names in Englsih, they use Pinyin.

              English: Where are you from?
              Putonghua ( Mandarin ): 你从哪里来?
              Pinyin: Ni cong nai li lai?

              The main purpose of pinyin is to help people learn Standard Mandarin pronunciation. Pinyin vowels are pronounced quite similarly to the vowels in Romance languages, and most consonants are also similar to English. But there are some pitfalls: the strange pronunciation of x, q, c, zh, and z and the unvoiced pronunciation of d, b, g, and j. The pronunciation of Chinese is generally offered in terms of initials and finals that represent the segmental phonemic portion of the language. Initials are initial consonants and finals are all possible mixtures of medials, the nucleus vowel, final vowel or consonant.

              Written Language
              Chinese language characters look like kind of pictures, and often referred to as a language of " pictographs". But many of the Chinese words are actually quite abstract and stylished pictures of what they represent. Very often it is difficult to guess the meaning from its characters. A well-educated Chinese People should master 6000 charaters. Students should learn about 2000 characters to read Chinese newpapaer and books.

              To raise literacy, China set up the Committee for Reforming the Chinese language in Beijing 1954. The committee has simplified over 2000 characters, reducing the number of strokes by about half. This reform is quite a success in the China mainland. But people in Taiwan and Hong Kong still use the traditional characters.

              Chinese characters have been in existence for over 5,000 years. All though they have continued to develop, the basic form of writing was already established by 200 A.D. This makes it only a very interesting aspect of Chinese life, but also one of mankind's greatest achievement.

              The 368 Chinese characters listed here are the root charaters or radicals. Of the 360 characters, some can function independently as characters, and are then contracted when they appear in combination.
