Learning Chinese - Not Easy by Molly
Hi guys, I am learning Chinese.
There are many people in the world who think they want to learn Chinese, until they actually try to take a course or teach themselves. Learning Chinese is not an easy task! The Chinese language is not very similar to the English language, which makes it a challenge to begin with. Although children are able to comprehend different languages easily, once you hit a certain age, it becomes more and more difficult to learn new languages.
Many people who study the Chinese language complain that there is no real base to the language at all. Those who learn the language must spend an enormous amount of time memorizing different characters and words. While the English language allows those learning it to use other words to connect meanings, Chinese words are not the same.
Experts say that many times people have an easier time learning to speak Chinese than they do learning to write the language. It is much like an art form. You have to learn the various slants and strokes needed to write this beautiful language. Once you do master it however, you will feel a great sense of accomplishment. Just be sure to give yourself a few years to become even close to being fluent.
