HOW TO STUDY CHINESE LANGUAGE EFFECTIVELY

 

Practice using the four Mandarin tones. Mandarin Chinese is a tonal language, which means that different tones can change the meaning of a word. It is essential to learn the different tones if you wish to speak Mandarin Chinese correctly.

Once you have a basic grasp of vocabulary and pronunciation, you can move on to learning basic conversational phrases which are used in everyday Chinese speech.

Learning Pinyin allows students of Mandarin to focus on their pronunciation, while also enabling them to read and write, without needing to learn complex Chinese characters. Practice reading and writing Chinese characters.

One of the best ways to improve your new language skills is to practice speaking with a native speaker.

Consider signing up for a language course. If you need some extra motivation or feel you would learn better in a more formal setting, try signing up for a Chinese language course.

Watch Chinese films and cartoons. Get your hands on some Chinese DVDs (with subtitles) or watch Chinese cartoons online. This is an easy, entertaining way to get a feel for the sound and structure of the Mandarin Chinese language.

Listen to Chinese music and radio. Listening to Chinese music or radio is another good way in which a student can learn Chinese language easier.
