Why Chinese is easy to learn?
It’s often said that Chinese is one of the hardest languages to learn.
Actually it’s not true.
I’m going to set your mind at ease and hopefully give you a new burst of enthusiasm for learning Mandarin Chinese.
Here are a few reasons why I believe Mandarin Chinese is easy to learn.
Reason 1: Mandarin Chinese grammar is comparatively simple and straightforward
We don’t conjugate verb form based on the subjects or tenses in Chinese.
And no need to worry about gender or number when dealing with verbs.
Reason 2.Chinese Nouns stay the same in both singular and plural forms.
Reason 3: Chinese words are very transparent and logical.
The way a Chinese word formed tells you a lot about the meanings.
Reason 4: Chinese phonetics are not difficult.
We use Latin letters to indicate the pronunciation of Chinese characters. There are 21 initials (plus 2 special initials), 24 finals and 4 tones(plus one neutral tone) in Chinese phonetic system Pinyin. According to certain rules, all the initials and finals can actually form a total of about 400 syllables. With all the 400 syllables, you can pronounce any Chinese word.
Reason 5: Chinese characters are not random pictures, but a resonablly organized system of pictographic, radicals and phonetic elements that isn’t hard to understand.
Let's explore the fascinating Chinese language and Chinese culture together!
