Well I am at a humbled point in my chinese studies.
I started self teaching myself last Sept.,listening to newbie lessons and than writing them in simplified chinese.
I have made a very close chinese friend in March that speaks very little english and is a huge help. Anways he told me that if I don't study pinyin too I will not understand chinese.
It has added more to my study but I am starting to see that he is correct, as I have slowed down my speech and put more emphasis on proper tones and pronouncing.
