Recently, a student with a complete zero foundation, after learning three classes, told me that she would change to a teacher who specializes in oral English because she didn’t want to learn Chinese grammar or HSK-related things, but only wanted to learn some daily life language, such as how Buying air tickets, how to shop on Taobao, etc… well… I have seen his future Chinese level.
No matter what language you learn, it is very important to lay the foundation. Grammar and vocabulary are fundamental. I want to run before I stand up, and I can’t bear a little bit of boring repetition. There is only one ending and it is impossible to communicate in this language. Presumably, many of the second language learners have fallen on the first step, and the only thing they can learn if they are too eager for quick success and quick profit can only be learned.
So many foreigners who speak Chinese fluently and use authentic words that we find in life, how do they do it?
Regardless of whether you are studying Chinese in China or not, there must be Chinese people around you to communicate with you. In short, the language will rust. What you learn in class will be forgotten if you don’t use it frequently in life. The little brother who sells souvenirs in Morocco learned Chinese from the tubing and used it for tourists the next day. He opened his mouth when he opened his mouth to the popular Chinese online jokes.
Fortunately, we are living in an era of the Internet explosion, learning resources are shared globally, and we can use the fragmented time to learn spoken Chinese and flash Chinese videos; if we want to remember Chinese characters, flash cards flash. Those great gods who are good at language learning, who don’t accumulate thousands of hours and master foreign languages in a few days, are cheating Yindi.
Participate in activities in the new language:
Take the initiative to participate in speeches, dramas, hosting, singing, etc., whatever you like. When you prepare for these activities, you definitely don’t want to lose your face on the stage. At this time, you will memorize the foreign language materials thoroughly, and you will think carefully about choosing words and making sentences, and your pronunciation speed. This way you will learn Chinese several years later. It’s hard to forget.
Use your mobile phone to record and listen to the original sound of your own Chinese:
Record a piece of Chinese that you speak every day, preferably in that specific expression. I believe that after listening to a pronunciation that feels good about yourself, you will no longer have the courage to laugh at others. During this process, you will find that you don’t know how to say the things you often use in your life, such as the sink for washing vegetables, faucets, etc. Some of the pronunciations that you used to be confident may be out of tune, and the grammar that you don’t notice may be wrong. Find your problem and you are half the battle.
Be humble, you can’t handle everything:
Modesty is not a character recognized by every country, but you can be confident, don’t be arrogant, there are others outside, and you can never learn any language.
As long as you are not the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, you will be wrong if you make a mistake, and you will not be fined. As long as you say it, most Chinese people can actually understand it, and they are always tolerant of speaking Chinese to foreigners. Once embarrassed or lose face, they will always remember this point. Without using the sentence, the problem will never be discovered.
Find a language icon to imitate:
Find a character that is similar to your voice and you like to imitate the way he speaks. This is very effective in improving your pronunciation, rhythm, speaking speed, etc.!
