Here is the link of Chinese pinyin table which can show you how to pronounce in all four tones. As a mandarin beginner, you should start with pinyin which is the alphabet in English. Pinyin can help you pronounce Chinese characters.
Hey Look the chart. The horizontal line is the start of the words(Initials). And the vertical line is the final part of the words. When we put, an initial part and a final part together, you can pronounce it. Then you can put 4 tones on the final part, which each tone is different word.
For example: m(initial)+a(final)=mā 妈 (mother)
=mà 骂（swear/say dirty words）
The pinyin table show you the order of initials and finals. Click each word and it will show you how to pronounce in different tones.
You can write down and try to memorize them.
