Mandarin

Speak it, write it, everyone's doing it!

There is no doubt that written Chinese is difficult to learn – even for the Chinese! But the spoken language is another matter. Here are some features which make Mandarin easy:

  • no subject/verb agreement
  • no plurals
  • no conjugations
  • no tenses
  • simple numbering system which is applied to dates and time expressions
  • simple conditional sentences
  • simple prepositions

The Chinese writing system is quite a challenge, but this is another reason to learn it! Despite its difficulty, learning to read and write Chinese will give you a lifetime of intellectual stimulation. The real beauty of the language is revealed in the writing. There are thousands of Chinese characters, but they are not randomly constructed. There is a system to their design, and understanding that system makes it much easier to learn new characters.
