With the opportunity to learn online there has never been a better time to learn Chinese. Here are our 10 reasons to learn Chinese:
Learning Chinese online gives you the flexibility to study anywhere at a time convenient to you. If you have work and/or family commitments online learning is a solution. It’s also easy to take time off from studying or to change your schedule. Course content can be tailored to your needs. You decide.
It’s much cheaper to study online than attending a language school. There’s no commuting or getting stuck in traffic going to a language school. Study materials are usually provided online so that’s another cost you don’t have to bear.
You’ll find it’s easy to access your online tutor for help and advice. You’ll receive help and support along with individual feedback to help you with your studies.
Learning Chinese creates business opportunities. China has been growing fast economically and now has the second largest economy in the world. China trades with the USA, Europe and Asia. If you are going to do business with the Chinese and one of the largest markets in the world, you’ll be in a much better position with a good knowledge of the Chinese language and culture.
Mandarin is a major language in countries like Malaysia, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Brunei, Philippines, and Mongolia. If you want to travel or do business there, the Chinese your learned will be of great use.
It’s not as Hard as You Think
Most language authorities put Chinese at the top of the most difficult language to learn pile. While Chinese characters take some time to learn you only need around 1000 characters to read 90% of the characters in a Chinese newspaper. You’ll find that Chinese characters are built from simpler building block characters which reoccur again and again. You’ll start by learning pinyin which looks like this: ni hao – that’s “hello” in Chinese. Pinyin will help you to learn to speak Chinese while you learn the characters. Grammatically Chinese is very simple with no verb tenses. Here’s an example;
today I go, yesterday I go, tomorrow I go.
How will you feel when you have learned one of the most difficult languages in the world?
