The best suggestions for Learning?
hi, i think a book and a dvd is good choice. you just practise again and again. a child can learn a language soon,i think you will learn it soon. i usually encourage myself with the same thought.
i am an expert in pinyin. i am good at teaching. i am teaching my son with pinyin. it's easy,i am glad to help you if you like. i am interested in learning english.we can help each other and share happiness and sadness. i am kate. hope to be your friend.
First you must have a dictionary . Then you can watch some TV series and CCTV 4 . You will find it is simply to reading and listening esaier . And talk with some person who come from China . You don't worry about you pronunciation . Read widely . Look for materials that you find interesting , that you can understand without relying too much on a dictionary . A page a day is a good way to strat . As you go on , you will find that you can do more pages a day .
audio does great help i must say. the only thing you need is someone who can correct YOUR mistakes or give some comments. so maybe you can try livemocha, where ppl will rate your submissions and such.
or just make friends with some chinese and ask for help^ ^
anyway, i just think it of great necessity for you to READ OUT LOUD.
i dont really like the pinyin stuff. coz i think you can recognize some chinese characters, if not all. they carry the culture which cant be represented by pinyin. but i must say pinyin is really helpful when you cant read the character out. oh so maybe pinyin should be referred to as the phonetic alphebet?
as for the reading and writing part....practice always makes perfect. so you need to force yourself to remember how those characters look and get some reading materials to "look at" every day. maybe it's like me reading AP news. a lot of words that make no sense. but it doesnt matter. so long as you get acquaintance with them, you'll tell them apart. <-- this is my theory. those appearing too many times definitely are important and you ought to keep them in mind.
my point being....keep trying and you'll learn it well one day. good luck^ ^
btw Happy New Year
