(ā) is used to express amazement


Ā! Zhège dìfāng zhème piàoliang!

Oh, This place is so beautiful!

(á) is used when you want an answer

啊? 你说什么?

Á? Nǐ shuō shénme?


(ǎ) is used to express surprise


Ǎ, Nǐ yǒu shénme wèntí?

Gosh, what’s your problem?

(à) is used to express sudden realization


À, Nǐ shì tā de nánpéngyǒu!

Ah, so you are her boyfriend.

Yes, I have been saying again and again: TONES ARE IMPORTANT.
