Learning Chinese – Our Advice

Studying and learning Mandarin Chinese is a long process and we want to help you with doing so. Many people start learning Mandarin online or in their home country. However, sooner rather than later pretty much everyone who seriously wants to learn Chinese will come to China to study there.

There are a lot of options, from studying in big cities like Beijing or Shanghai or going for a complete immersion Chinese course in a smaller city like Chengde.

Studying Chinese is a lot of fun, but can also be quite frustrating at times. An important part is to get the tones right at the beginning and to not forget that if you want to reach fluency then learning Chinese characters is obligatory.

Chinese grammar is actually relatively simple at least at the beginner level and pronunciation – except the tones – quite manageable when compared to many other languages. The main difficulties are mastering the tones, learning characters and remembering vocabulary which can be challenging as Chinese words do not sound in any way similar to their English counterparts.
