Start learning chinese....

Hi, everyone. I am interested in far east cultures such as the chinese and japanese ones. I only speak few european languages, and I wish I canlearn chinese, that will give a news dimension of understanding, and it open the doors to the chinese culture and way of thinking. I beleive it is not as difficult and damn hard as we hear some people say. I think this is only based on pure speculation because people rarely know an other language to have element to compare....

So I would like to start learning chinese, what method do you recomend me to follow, what are your advices, books, websites, applications, programms.... ?

1. learn Chinese PINYIN first, you can find more vides regarding PINYIN on Youtube.

2. find text books you like, e.g. http://www.ryedu.net/kjwy/enet/200807/8762.html

3. have more contacts with Chinese (e.g. book, newspaper,TV, video, radio, etc.) to understand Chinese context. 

3. practice at least 30mins each day.

Good luck to you!

Rossetta Stone is an option.
It is using what’s called Immersion Technique. It teaches you to associate a new word with images and sounds. You will work your way up from a basic set of characters and pick up some more words through drills and repetitions.

Or you can find people who speak either English or your native language to help you learn Mandarin.

Good luck!

Hello,July .对于学习第二门语言,我想给你一点建议:

首先,要明确自己的学习目的,比如,我想去中国旅游,或者我想了解中国文化,或者我身边有中国朋友,我想和他们加强沟通,等等。这样能明确你的学习方向,让学习中文不枯燥。

其次,中文学习比较难(That's my English speaking friends told me),你要多说,坚持学习。中国人很热情,愿意帮助别人(尤其是漂亮的女生见到你这样handsome 的男人)。可以看一些中文动画片(我学习英文也是从动画片看起)

加油吧。

     你好,July!得知你想要学习中文,我很高兴。能够看到越来越多的外国友人对中华文化表示浓厚的兴趣,我相信,这对于每一位炎黄子孙都是值得骄傲与自豪的事情。:)

     关于汉语学习,很多外国的友人们会选择来我们国家留学深造,因为这样可以对中华文化有亲身体会。当然了,更加方便的方法是在网络上进行学习,这需要不断的尝试与足够的毅力。很多的学习素材都可以在网络上得到--比如你可以关注中文的海外频道。其实最简单的方法就是多多浏览italki的汉语帖子,相信你肯定能有所收获。

     加油吧,希望你早日能够熟练地使用汉语!
