Speaking Mandarin will enable you to communicate with millions of people around the world and gain access to numerous jobs, greater career opportunities.
2. Did you know that Malaysia has a Chinese population of approximately 25%?
Being able to communicate in Mandarin with Chinese people strengthens bonds and understanding. Cross-cultural friendships, expanded career opportunities, exciting travel adventures, and deeper insights into how others see the world will benefit you for the rest of your life.
3. Did you know that learning a new language widens our perspective, expand you horizons and deepen our knowledge?
A new language means new perspectives, new ideas, new knowledge and a deeper connection with other people. Studies have shown that a new language can change how the human mind pulls information together, hence, enabling multilinguals to have more than one perspective on a particular issue.
For decision-makers, this may facilitate negotiations and the ability to see both sides of an argument and different points of view. This is why multinational companies are looking to employ more multilinguals
In short, learning Mandarin language is not just about having an advantage in the workplace; it is about opening yourself up to new experiences and possibilities. It broadens your mind, opens up opportunities and you gain skills that will serve you throughout your life.
How to understand and speak fluent Mandarin?
Learn Mandarin Chinese Step by Step: The Newbie’s Road Map
Step 1 : How to pronounce every word accurately?
This is one of the main hurdles of learning Mandarin that throws new learners off. However, tones are rather simple once you understand how they work. Here’s an example of the word ma with 5 different tones (different tones, different meanings) :
妈 (mā) — mother
麻 (má) — numb
骂 (mà) — scold
马 (mǎ) — horse
吗 (ma) — a question mark (?)
Step 2 : How to memorise new vocabulary efficiently?
This is actually the most difficult part in learning new language. We may quickly forget the new vocabulary we have learned. We understand the difficulties of memorising so many vocabularies.
Many teachers out there would just translate English to Mandarin to teach their students. This makes us different from other teachers. In BBC, we apply long-term memory methods to make sure students can remember the words forever.
Method #1 Slow Motion Technique
We will explain the logic of Mandarin and bridge the gap between English, Malay and Mandarin thinking. There are strong correlation among Malay, Mandarin and English languages. Slow Motion Technique will show you the logic of Mandarin and explain the meaning behind every word.
Method #2 Mnemonic / Homophonic
Method #3 Use body language / Do the action
Method #4 Make a sentence with emotion
Step 3 : How to form sentence structure correctly?
BBC formula for sentence structure is STPA – Subject Time Place Action
Step 4 : How to speak Mandarin fluently and confidently?
This is the last step that most people ignore.
