It is important to learn Chinese language.
Chinese language is definitely a must for studying in China. Compared with English, Chinese is not easy to learn. Many international students have already heard about it before they coming to China. No worries, since Chinese is so extensive and profound, no need to be proficient in it but basic language skills would be good enough.
To learn Chinese language well, you should pay attention to the following
1. Pinyin is the most important foundation.
It is very close to the pronunciation rules of English. By mastering Pinyin, you will be able to master the pronunciation of Chinese language very well. Even if you can't write too many Chinese characters by yourself, your fluent spoken English will be good enough for you to communicate with Chinese people.
2. Try more texts.
In Chinese language teaching, texts are carefully selected articles, which are not only the content of learning, but more importantly, very practical scenes of daily life so can be applied soon after learning. It is suggested to preview and review carefully before each class, so that you can master the content of the text proficiently, and have more opportunities to interact with teachers and classmates in class.
3. Slowly to master Chinese characters.
As beginners you don't need to be too anxious to pursue the number, many commonly used Chinese characters may be polyphonic or polysemous, that is to say, a word has more than two pronunciations or meanings. You can master the common Chinese characters in textbooks, and then accumulate them in your life little by little.
4. Use your Chinese knowledge in practical situations.
Such as when meeting new people, use your self-introduction, if you have a Chinese name or ask a friend to give you a Chinese name will make you more popular. You can use numerals, quantifiers and money expressions when you are in a supermarket. Don't be shy to speak. Most of the time, Chinese people will understand you pretty well.
