Tones?

Posted by taft100 September 3, 2013 in the Group General Discussion.

The different tones are really throwing me into confusion. Is there a progressive scale pitch wise that they follow? Or does it have to do with inflection? If I learn the basic pronuciation of the words on this site and then try to use those words will I totally change the meaning of what I am saying simply by changing the pitch or inflection? Will the meanings of the words themselves change?
