In here, we collect 8 easiest way to help you learn Mandarin Chinese.
Talk to your Chinese friends or find yourself a language partner.
Watch Chinese TV Shows or Movies: Youku, the Chinese version of YouTube has an abundance of Chinese shows.
Use a language learning app to practice your Chinese while you are waiting for the subway, bus etc.
Eat at your local Chinese restaurant. You know, the one that has the menu all in Chinese.
Start with pronunciation and tones.
Starting out with pronunciation and tones is so important because once you have adopted a certain style of speaking, it will be hard to change that later. So it is better to learn correctly from the very beginning. This is the part where you probably want a native speaker helping you and pointing out your flaws.
Learn Chinese Characters with an intelligent method.
Create a habit and learn in small portions.
When it comes down to learning a new language, a weekend session of 300 minutes is not the same as five weekly sessions of 60 minutes: There is only so much input your brain can take at one time and especially when dealing with a foreign language, your brain has to go through some massive adaptation process. It will tire quickly. That’s why it makes sense to divide your learning material into small portions that can be effectively learned and revised: Learn 30 words a week, do 30 minutes of listening a day etc.
Stay focused and practice!
Following the above tips will make learning Chinese tremendously easier. But the only way to ensure success is still to stay focused and to have realistic but challenging goals you want to reach. The HSK tests might be one, traveling to China might be one, converse with your business partner in Mandarin might be another. Whatever it is, with that goal in mind, keep practicing and revising. As someone said, the moment you stop learning is the moment you start dying. This is especially true with languages: Without continued revision, acquiring a second or third language and retaining it is near impossible.
