    IMO learning online alone seems like a difficult way to start for a language like this.
    if you're really willing to study, take classes with a proper teacher.
    Otherwise you won't have anyone to practice with and you'll probably give up after a while...

    Costy is right.

    I'd say find a chinese friend and start by learning simple words like hello and how are you.
    Then slowly progress to more difficult words and or complete sentences via him/her and or online services.

    Keep on practicing with your friend and you'll be able to speak it a little in no time ;]
