Do you want to learn Chinese, but feel it's difficult? Maybe that's because you've made some of the mistakes that beginners make when trying to learn Chinese, but that I want to help you avoid!
So, let's first take a look at those common mistakes.
Mistake #1Underestimating the importance of tones
Without tones, your "accent" will be so heavy that very few will understand you. If you've ever heard someone speak English, but couldn't understand them, more than likely it was due to their accent. You don't want this to be you when it comes to Chinese.
Plus, there are two other BIG mistakes when it comes to tones (like not really knowing what they are or how to say them AND how to put different tones together) that you'll learn in this book. Be sure to pay special attention to these so you can learn Chinese easily!
Mistake #2Only partially learning PinYin
It's like learning only half of the alphabet in English! "A, b, c, d . . . don't know, don't know...m, n, o, p...have no idea, don't really care...x, y, z." That's what it sounds like to those who know Chinese when you don't learn the PinYin sounds well. Besides, how many "words" are you going to be able to say in Chinese if the basics are this bad? Instead, learn PinYin easily with my simple approach to Chinese PinYin.
Mistake #3Making it impossible for yourself to learn
This is common for just about anyone learning a new language, but I see it all the time for those trying to learn Chinese. It's the mistake of NOT putting yourself in an environment where you can learn. It sounds simple, but it's so often overlooked. That's why this book goes over tips that will make it easy for you to learn Chinese and have success with Mandarin Chinese.
Please avoid these mistakes! As someone who learned the language myself, but also as a teacher saw students struggle because of these mistakes, I'm begging you to NOTICE them and AVOID them like the plague.
