Why I Can’t Stop Learning Chinese

Since I wrote my post about the importance of immersion 6 months ago, I have learned nearly 4 thousand words, that's 2 thousand words every three months (double what I was learning when I wrote that post in the first place) - however if numbers alone don't convince you of the effectiveness of immersion, then … Continue reading Why I Can’t Stop Learning Chinese

How I Learned 1000 New Chinese Words in Three Months Without Trying!

Learning 1000 words in any language is certainly an achievement to be proud of, and on the face of it, achieving this goal is quite doable - simply learn 10 words a day or more until you reach the 1000 mark.

我学中文一年了,我的中文怎么样?

我学中文学了一年了,现在我的中文怎么样?对我来说我的中文还是非常差,但是我的进步很快。我今年用了很多时间学听力和阅读。因为我很少学口语和写作,所以我的听力和阅读能力比写作和口语好。我还没考HSK4是因为新冠病毒,我要是去考试肯定会通过。 如果我很少说中文,很少写汉字,我怎么学习?看电影,看电视剧, 看书。现在我一边写中文一边听有声小说,叫“查理和巧克力工厂” 因为我的中文水平不错,所以我可以看各种中国的娱乐节目和书,但是我并不是都明白。这是我学习的方法。看电影的时候,如果我不明白,我就查那个我不知道的词的意思。我不会去试图记住这个词,只是想明白我现在看的句子。因为翻译很快,我可以享受中国电影,所以学习不会让我感觉太烦。 学习的开始最难了,因为每个词你都不知道,所以你必须要学基础的词。可是一但你学完基础的词和语法你可以更多享受学习。我看过 ‘Well intended love’, ‘Accidently in Love’ and ‘Take my brother away’  (这个电视剧在Netflix上所以不知道中文名)都比学基础的东西有有意思,而且有用。 虽然这些节目很有意思,但是看它们还是让我累了。大部分的中国电视剧都是45分钟。因为我有工作,工作以后难以看45分钟的电视剧,所以我用‘LINGQ’看书。 你想要学中文的话,我最推荐看书。首先书很方便。你有5分钟或者5个小时的话都可以看书。不用看完45分钟的节目,你在想看的时候可以随便看书。中文口语是中文的一部分。书里不仅有中文口语,还有比较复杂的句子,描述的句子很多。还有,看书很慢,如果你想,就可以花时间让你明白每一个句子! 现在我的方法不是每天试图记住很多生词。我就是享受用中文接触各种的有意思的中国的视频和书。虽然我没有试图记住词,但是我还渐渐学会了新的词。你看书的时候会看到同一个词很多次,因为你看过这个词很多次,你自然会记住那个词。多有意思和好玩的方法! 我自信有一天可以说流利的中文。在我达到那个水平之前,我打算继续享受学习中文!   谢谢你们来看我的博客文章!如果你有学习的建议请告诉我! 我差不多每年发一个中文博客文章,如果人们喜欢的话,我可以发更多的文章!谢谢!

How To Use Memrise Effectively – Or How I Learned Three Hundred and Four Words in Three Weeks (at least)

I don't know if 304 words sounds like a lot for three weeks, after-all 14-15 words a day sounds doable. However I must also specify that this was alongside a lot of grammar study and hanzi memorisation. As well as that, this only accounts for words used by memrise, I didn't actually use it very … Continue reading How To Use Memrise Effectively – Or How I Learned Three Hundred and Four Words in Three Weeks (at least)
