thanks andy.

I just started to learn it, so i need to learn first before practicing, right?

I just need someone to tell me the steps of learning.

I'm not sure whether the following is suitable for you, just for your reference.

As Chinese, we generally learn our own language through the following steps:

Step 1: When we're babies, we definitely have no idea about what those people around us are talking about. But we listen all the time and some words just left in our mind. For example, "爸爸,妈妈"( Dad and Mum) maybe the first two words we learn in our life.

Step 2: Through Step 1, we will have a better understanding about the language(of course, the first step lasts for many years). Usually, we can talk in easy Chinese. But we may not know how to wording nor how to write chinese words. So, at this stage, we go to school for learning. the first thing we learn is Pin Yin, Chinese alphabet. Like A to Z, we can use them to learn more words through dictionary. But for western people, I'll recommend you to learn Wade-Giles romanization, which is more suitable for western people, especially for right pronounciation.

Step3: If you wanna have a good command of Chinese. I guess the next step should be to learn how to write. It's a little bit complicated. A big system behind it.


To be honest, as a chinese, when i was in college, i still need to learn it in the first two years. so you can see, how many years we spend on learning our own language. Be patient and make friends with Chinese people to practice will be important as culture is another essential element to help you learn a language.
