家 means home or family. The pingyin is jia (jia2) with a rising tone, like you're asking a question. My home/family is 我的家. 我 means mine or my or I. 的 is a possiesive term. The pingyin is wo de jia (wo2 de4 jia2). Wo is pronouced like "Whoa!" and de can be pronouced differently, depending on the situation. In this case, it's pronouced Di with a decending tone, like you're giving an order. 家庭 means a family. The pingyin is jia ting. (jia2 ting2) Ting is in a uprising tone, like you're asking a question.
