Difficulty level? — Some say that Chinese isn’t as difficult as say French. To an English speaker all those new sounds and tones may seem like a scary task.

Here are some tips to help get over the fears that may come with starting this language.

What’s with these tones? Get familiar with the tones in Mandarin. It’s an important part of learning. English speakers often want to speak other languages with English speaking rules. This mistake can hold you back from progressing with the language. Let yourself go!

Need more explanation about tones?

How do I learn these characters? Understand that learning takes time so learn the characters little by little. Get a good reference book or workbook and have a teacher, friend or language partner correct them.

How am I going to learn the Mandarin Grammar? Find out what works best for you – attending a class, online program, private tutor, language partner, software program or self learning with a book. We all learn different. Find out what works best for you and do it your best!
