今天天气很冷。 jin1 tian1 tian1 qi4 hen3 leng3
今天 jin1 tian1 today, 天气 tian1 qi4 weather, 很 hen3 very, 冷 leng3 cold.
今天天气很冷. jin1 tian1 tian1 qi4 hen3 leng3 Today weather is cold.
Normally in Chinese, we put the date or time first, then the object, then the descriptive words. For example, if you want to say "He is very good today." You will say 今天他很好。ta1 jin1 tian1 hen3 hao3.
When two third tones go together, the first third tone will be changed to second tone. For example: 很冷 hen3 leng3 became hen2 leng3, and 很好 hen3 hao3 became hen2 hao3.

Wo3 xi3 huan1 ni3 我喜欢你 I like you.
Wo3 我 I, xi3 huan1 喜欢 like, ni3 你 you. 我喜欢你 I like you.
If you want to say "I don't like you." All you need is to add bu4 (不 not) to negate it. Hence, I don't like you will be Wo3 bu4 xi3 huan1 ni3 我不喜欢你.
If you want to deepen the like to love, you need to know the word ai4 爱love. So, I love you will be Wo3 ai4 ni3 我爱你. Guess what will be I don't love you? Yes, it is easy, just to put bu4 不in front of the verb ai4 爱 to negate the meaning. Wo3 bu4 ai4 ni3 我不爱你.
Tone rule: when bu4 go with another verb also is fourth tone, the bu4 will be changed to second tone. So, bu4 ai4 should be pronounced as bu2 ai4.

How to say "it rained" in Chinese? Xia4 yu4 le 下雨了。
xia4 下 drop, yu3 雨 rain, le 了 a particle to indicate the action has occurred.下雨了it rained.
In Chinese, there is no change of verb tenses. So, if you want to say something that has happened, it is a good way to use the particle le 了 at the end of the sentence. For example: Wo3 kan4 dian4 ying3 le 我看电影了 I have watched movie, wo3 chi1 le 我吃了 I have eaten or ta1 lai2 le 他来了 He has come.
