5 Key Steps to Learn Mandarin

STEP 1: Learn to Pronounce Han Yu Pin Yin.

Han yu means Mandarin while pin yin means spelling. There are 3 components of han yu pin yin; 

  • 6 vowels
  • 4+1 tones
  • 21 consonants

STEP 2 : Learn to Understand and Memorise Vocabularies

You have to understand and memorise at least 1000 vocabularies in order to be well-versed in Mandarin. Start learning commonly used vocabularies for daily conversation.

STEP 3 :Learn to Construct Sentence

Formula is STPA

S = Subjects (who) come at the beginning of the sentence
T = Time (when) expressions come immediately before or after the subject. 
P = Place (where) where an event happened, the place expression comes before the verb. 
A = Action (what) verb + object, do something.

STEP 4 : Speak Mandarin Everyday

STEP 5 : Learn Mandarin Characters

After you can speak around 50% of Mandarin, you are no longer a beginner. You can now learn to read and write Chinese characters. We don’t encourage Beginner students to learn Chinese characters at the beginning as it may not be easy for you. Most people agree that Chinese characters is the hardest language to learn. So we leave this to Step 5, only after you can speak around 50% of Mandarin.
