Chinese For Beginner

-You need to find a motive why you want to learn Chinese, and how long, how often you speak Chinese? E.g. : My colleague wanted to be a part time translator so he signed up for a Chinese course. My student had a Chinese girl friend and wanted to communicate with her and her parent in Asia. It all depends what motivates you to learn Chinese and always remember your motive.

- Use 20 minutes a day, to learn new words and practice the previous chapter, pronounce it out loud so you'll remember them.

- Find a local group, or friends who are able to speak Chinese, go out with them more often and learn from them. You need a partner so you can improve your oral skills.

- Learn to speak and understand Chinese is easy, but writing and pronounce it accurately would be the harder part. You can find some useful materials at links or resource box below.

- There's no faster way to master Chinese Language, because it has totally no connection with French, Italian or Spanish. There are more than 3000 chinese character and each has its own meaning. Combining 2 character will form another meaning. Using some Chinese Language software is a way to master Chinese Language. But no matter how, practise makes perfect!

The fastest ways to learn Chinese, Speak Chinese are

We did a research and found out the best results would be as follow :-

- 1. Study on board. Go China and sign up a 6 months course. You'll basically learn how to speak Chinese, how to read Chinese, understand it and use them in a correct way. This is a costly method, 6 months including accommodation + course fees + air ticket.

- 2. Buy a Chinese language software. There are lots of Chinese Language software that you can purchase online today, this software is great, especially if you are busy and unable to attend course, classes. But it's quite limited unless you got some Chinese friends to practice with. Not that costly, most probably would be less than USD300.

- 3. Attend Chinese classes. This will be a substitute of Choice No 1, except you are doing it at your own country. Go to China town and I believe you can find one easily. But in long run, this is costly, it might takes you years to complete. Some Chinese teachers are quite boring because they tend to repeat the same chapter again and again J

We still recommend either Choice 1, or 2. Faster and more guaranteed. Choice 3, hmmm, depending how good the Chinese teachers are, you can ask around those friends who've successfully learn Chinese, ask them to recommend you the place.

Here's some basic conversation for you, so at least you know how to speak Chinese.
