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. Mandarin vocabulary is rather straight forward compared to English. For instance,

STEP 3 : Learn to Construct Sentence Structure
This is the formula to create Mandarin sentences.
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.
The sequence is Subject, Time, Place and Action (STPA)
