This guide destroys the feeling that language learners usually have at the beginning of a "difficult" language.
The "device setup" archive is a big piece of chocolate cake. People hate to research tools because it takes a lot of time, so thank you for saving our time. You´ve thought about students who use the excuse of 'I don't have time!' You´ve made a beautiful and useful book for everyone who wants to learn Chinese.
Over a billion people (16% of the world's population) use Chinese as their main language. China is the world's second largest economy, and the fastest growing major economy in the world. Learning Chinese opens a world of opportunity. Speaking Mandarin can improve your job prospects, give you an advantage in business, and provides an insider's view of one of the fascinating countries on earth. Not to mention all the travel opportunities in China you can only discover if you speak Mandarin.
Chinese has a reputation as “the hardest language on earth”. Learning to read and write with Hanzi (Chinese characters) can feel close to impossible, let alone starting the speak the language with its complex tones.
There are plenty of good reasons to learn Chinese. It makes sense that Chinese is one of the top choices for language learners in the Fluent in 3 Months community.
I’m Benny Lewis, bestselling author and founder of the Fluent in 3 Months website. I speak 11 languages - including Mandarin Chinese. You may have seen me speaking at TEDx or featured in the National Geographic magazine.
Mandarin was the 18th new language I learned to speak. As such, I had a lot of previous experience learning languages. Even so, when I went to live in China, I knew learning Chinese would be a challenge.
Learning Chinese was a challenge. But I didn’t find it to be impossible in any way. There are many parts of learning Chinese that are more work than in European languages. On the flip side, there are many parts of Chinese that are genuinely easy in comparison.
By plunging in at the deep-end and using the full immersion approach, I forced myself to make thousands of mistakes as I learned Chinese.
From every mistake I learned something. Over time, I developed effective techniques for learning Chinese. These techniques are my language hacks for becoming a Mandarin speaker.
The hacks I discovered eventually made Chinese an easy language for me to learn. And now, I’ve decided to share them. You can use these hacks without discovering them the hard way (through the school of hard knocks) as I did.
All of this is inside one easy-to-read ebook, formatted to view on your tablet, e-reader, smartphone or computer screen.
Whether you want to learn Chinese for business, school or leisure, I will show you that learning a language doesn’t have to be difficult.
