Onyomi, Konyomi?

I'm a beginner in kanji, and I don't quite understand onyomi and konyomi. What are those?

    Onyomi and konyomi are different pronunciations of kanji. Onyomi is from the "Chinese reading" and konyomi is the "Japanese reading". You will have to know both of them.

    I see, thank you for the brief explanation. :) After a night of googling and reading through sites, I think I understand it now.
