Absolutely YES!

Pinyin is the official phonetic system to transcribe Chinese characters into Latin scripts. It is a very useful tool to help Chinese language learners to study the correct pronunciation of Mandarin words. For example, the Chinese character 妈 (mother) is pronounced as “mā”.

Pinyin is normally formed of three parts: an initial (consonant), a final (vowel) and a tone as shown below:
