Study Mandarin in China 21/10/11
One of the best ways to really understand Chinese culture is to also understand the language. Now, we’re not talking about absolute fluency, but if you’re able to say ‘Hello’ to that woman on the market who always smiles at you, or can do more than point and hope when you’re in a restaurant, you’ll feel so much more connected to the country
One of the best ways to really understand Chinese culture is to also understand the language. Now, we’re not talking about absolute fluency, but if you’re able to say ‘Hello’ to that woman on the market who always smiles at you, or can do more than point and hope when you’re in a restaurant, you’ll feel so much more connected to the country. That’s why a combined programme of culture and language study is one of the best ways to study Mandarin in China. Not only do you get the benefits of intensive Chinese language study in class, you also have the opportunity to try out every new word or phrase that you learn right after you’ve learnt it; definitely the best way of improving your Mandarin quickly! Being immersed in the language- hearing it on the street, on the radio, on the television each day- will improve your spoken Mandarin as well as your comprehension and listening skills. It’s not uncommon for students who have been able to study Chinese in China to surpass their counterparts back home who may have been studying the language for longer. After all, that is how we learn our mother tongue; not by sitting down and learning grammar and new vocabulary, but by exposing ourselves as much as possible to the language and learning by ear.
