Can you speak fluent Mandarin in 60 hours?

earth_hour_webbanner_3185874
Some people think we are giving #fakepromise by having the slogan of "U Can Speak Mandarin in 60 hours". You may think it is exaggerating and impossible. But let us tell you that...
.
#IMPOSSIBLE or #POSSIBLE is actually depends on you.
What is your strategy and way to learn Mandarin? Who do you learn with? How do you practice? How much effort do you put into learning Mandarin?
 
We created this slogan because we have students who really can speak fluent Mandarin in 60 hours! In fact, we have one VIP student who is able to speak after 15 hours from scratch! Believe it or not?!
 
Of course, there are students who take longer than 60 hours to speak fluent Mandarin. It is because everyone is different! You may be good in languages, he may be good in Maths, she may be good in cooking, you see, everyone got different talent and mindset.
.
dddddd
.
When we say "U Can Speak Mandarin in 60 hours", it is about 8 months for 2 hours class per week, you need to do homework, practice speaking Mandarin everyday or call us anytime to practice speaking.
 
Even if you take longer than 8 months, it should be okay. Because we offer 6 months class for FREE if you are not able to speak fluent Mandarin in 12 months. So, you have maximum one and half year to be fluent in Mandarin.
The worst case scenario if you still not fluent in Mandarin after one and half year, you surely can reach 50% proficiency. This is based on our experience.
 
If you still think one and half year is #fakepromise, then you can take 3-10 years to be fluent. But not everyone has the patient and commitment to learn for such a long period. Almost everyone is busy with their work, family, etc. We can't expect and hope everyone to be with us for 3-10 years. Do you want?
.
That is why our students take 6-12 months to be fluent in Mandarin or maximum one and half year. We want our students to be 100% committed in learning Mandarin during this period. Once you reached 80% proficiency level, it is unlikely for you to forget how to speak Mandarin totally.

So how we make sure our students are able to speak Mandarin in 60 hours?
We make sure all students know about 3 golden steps to learn Mandarin communication: Step 1: Pronunciation Step 2: Vocabulary Step 3: Sentence Structure.
(If you want to know in details, click here to read more tips) Usually students are able to pronounce 80% accurately after first or second class using our method. After that, for every class we will teach on new vocabulary and how to apply the vocabulary to make sentences. We will link Mandarin to Malay and English, so that you will not learn from scratch. The truth is Mandarin communication is like combination of Malay and English. It is actually easier than English. We will use lots of activities to motivate you to speak Mandarin in class. We have total of 15 topics and we learn 1 topic for each class of 2 hours. In total it take 30 hours to complete our syllabus. But we know that language needs more practice. So we will revise whole book again for second time which makes our course total of 60 hours.
If you still doubt on our systematic way of learning, please join our class to experience yourself =)

9 Ways to Speak Fluent Mandarin Chinese

1. Get the Right Material

bbcpackage - Copy1

It is crucial that you have the right book to learn Mandarin.

By having the right material, you can cut short your learning curve as you don't have to spend extra time looking for right content.

The right book should have all the important contents that you need. So that you do not need to spend unnecessary time to look for other books.

If you are learning any language especially Mandarin, it is important that you have audio and video files, so that you can listen and follow the pronunciation. .

2. Read Chinese Conversations Aloud

Do you still remember the time you shout aloud? Yes, i still remember vividly the day and time when i shout aloud.

We will remember better if we read out the Chinese conversations, and it is the best if we can read out aloud.

You can either read it out for someone or recorded into audio files, and you can check whether the pronunciation is correct. .

3. Listen to Chinese Audio and Repeat

This is the reason you need to have the right material and the right material should provide the book, exercise, audio and video, all in one package.

When you are learning Mandarin from scratch, you may find that it is a bit difficult to get the correct tones.

Therefore, you need to listen to audio and follow the pronunciation for several times until you are used to it .

4. Write Down Conversations in Pin Yin

You may think that pin yin is not important for conversations. However, you can memorise the pin yin (spelling) better if you write down the pin yin.

Therefore you can pronounce it accurately according to the pin yin that you have memorised. .

5. Practice with Chinese Songs

I believe that most of us like to listen songs. Since you like to listen song and starting to learn Mandarin, you might as well listen to Chinese Songs.

You may want to start with kinddy song as the song tempo is slower or listen to old love songs such as Tian mi mi 甜蜜蜜 鄧麗君 by Teresa Teng .

6. Get a Language Partner

The language partner can be your family, friends or dedicated Chinese tutor.

He or she must be committed to support you, give you motivation during the learning process, offer constructive feedback and have systematic way of learning Mandarin. .

7. Try to Use the Language Actively

After you have learned for few words or sentences, you must apply it immediately before you forget it.

Do not wait until you have mastered Mandarin, then only you speak Mandarin. Honestly speaking you will never reach that stage if you do not start the first step now!

If you have no one to speak with, you can speak to yourself in Mandarin or call the tutor. .

8. Travel to a Chinese-speaking Country

If you are staying in Malaysia, i do not think that you have to travel to China, Taiwan or Hong Kong, as there are so many Chinese-speaking people in Malaysia. I believe you heard some Mandarin words almost everyday. .

9. Don’t Be Shy

The top reason you are not using Mandarin actively is maybe you are shy. I truly understand this as we have few students who are very shy to speak Mandarin.

If you are shy, no worry, you can start speaking Mandarin with your tutor, your good friends and lastly the strangers. The most important is you have to speak.

The secret to speak fluent Mandarin is really to speak Mandarin. So, don't be too shy!

Never Forget: Practice Makes Perfect!

No master fell just from heaven! Being able to speak a language takes time and effort.

Try to stay focused and motivated by rotating learning methods and make them diverse.

Are you ready to speak Chinese? Great! Don’t wait until tomorrow or next week—start now, start today!

NOW IS YOUR TURN!

Mandarin and Chinese Dialects

Chinese and dialects

"Which language or dialect should i learn?" We received this question almost everyday. So, here is our answer to you guys.

On 31st October 2000, the Law of Universal Language and Character of the People's Republic of China came into force, which stipulates Mandarin as China's universal national language. While Mandarin is spoken in distinctive dialects throughout China, standard Mandarin is mostly influenced by the Northern Beijing dialect. This is similar to how standard American English is influenced by the West Coast dialect. Beijing being the center of government in China accounts for its influence, while the actresses and actors of Hollywood set the American standard.

The official language in China is called Putonghua (普通话), literally translated as 'common speech', which is known in English as Mandarin Chinese, or Standard Chinese.

It is the most widely used language in China and the world at large, and one of the 6 official languages of the United Nations.

In Malaysia, all the government, private and international schools are teaching Mandarin Chinese. It is called as "Bahasa Cina" in Malay language.

Up to now, we still could not find school or centre that is teaching Chinese Dialects such as Cantonese, Hokkien, Hakka in Malaysia. If you know any, please inform us as we'd like to know.

While written forms of Mandarin maintain a rigid standard across the country, the dialects of China vary widely in their pronunciation patterns. Of the other varieties of Chinese spoken by the many ethnic groups of China, the most widely used and well known are Cantonese, Hokkien, Hakka, Fuchow, Shanghainese, and Sichuanese.

Mandarin Chinese belongs to the Sino-Tibetan language family, and is the shared language of most Chinese people. Chinese people who speak other languages, often also speak or use Mandarin as their second language.

If you intend to learn Chinese, it is most useful to learn Mandarin Chinese.
