  1. I suppose that language-learning should be begun in the easiest part,then,add to the difficulties gradually.Personally speaking,Chinese accent is not hard as it’s characters.It’s wise to start with pinyin.In China,students in primary school start Chinese-learning with pinyin rather than characters.After all,characters are even difficult to primary school students in China.Certainly,pinyin is only a techique to learn Chinese,characters are the last aim.But,pinyin is significant.That’s all my opinions to the order of study Chinese.Good luck to study Chinese well!
