Learning Chinese is not easy! Chinese is based on images and the intonation is completely different to that of European languages.
Also, there are two main languages, (Cantonese and Mandarin) which sound completely different to the extent that if you speak one you probably can’t understand the other, but they both use the same written texts.

However, the Chinese are very friendly!
Note: for a Chinese visa applicants are required to lodge their applications to the Chinese Embassy or Chinese Consulate in the country where they normally and legally reside. You may be able to get help or advice on this from the Chinese consulate in Edinburgh if you live here.
