Some Tips to Pay Heed to Learn Chinese Quickly
Setting strict goals
Many people begin learning a language with a feeling of curiosity and excitement, and that’s great! But the real deal is when you commit to the task. You can learn for a day or two and begin lazing around not studying the language, this hampers with the practice and the flow of learning. Hence, it is necessary to set concrete goals to learn this language.
- Identify short and long term goals.
Set long terms for when you see yourself in a year, two and then five years. Ponder on how much time you can invest in Chinese learning with the help of a Chinese tutor in order to build a base. You may aim at becoming fluent in the language in five years. Then focus on the short term goals spanning to six months out. Then also try to review your short term goals every month. Feel free to tweak your goals on the basis of how good you are doing to maintain a realistic approach.
- Select between mandarin and Cantonese
You cannot chase two rabbits at once as they may end up confusing you. Mandarin is deemed the dominant language not only in Mainland China, but also in Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong. Although, Cantonese is the main language spoken in Chinese communities of the US, Mandarin Chinese is also paving its path.
- Make a daily learning schedule
Your schedule should be designed so as to cater it to your goals and learning style. You can try the visualization or write your schedule. To learn Chinese, you need to do it daily. Once a week lessons are good, but not that helpful. To ensure a daily learning, make a daily schedule and pay heed to it. The time you will spend on Chinese everyday depends on your other commitments as well, but it is better to begin small, start with 15 minutes rather than for an hour. Once you develop a daily learning, you can increase the time.
Another method to get the daily learning is by adding a Chinese review to your daily bedtime routine. This will just take a few minutes while you are busy brushing your teeth or reading a book in your bed before you turn the lights off.
So, what are you waiting for? Begin with the planning and start learning Chinese today!
