ALWAYS LEARN PHRASES, NOT INDIVIDUAL WORDS: Meaning: Phrases are easier to remember, because they have meaning, they paint a picture, they tell a story. Speed: When you learn phrases instead of a word, you're learning how to use that word correctly, and its much faster. When we're children, we learn with phrases, groups of words, not just one word by one word by one word. Word by word is slow. Pronunciation: In real life some groups of words are said as though it were a single word, in one breath-group, without pausing. If you stop to take a breath in the middle of the phrase, you are not saying it correctly, and you risk being misunderstood. 2. LEARN WITH YOUR EARS AND WITH YOUR EYES Listen, listen and again listen is the magic key to speaking excellent Chinese Listen to how the native speaker speaks some words more strongly with different loudness, speed or pitch. In Chinese, these strong words are about new or important information. Without the correct stress on words, listeners may get the wrong meaning. All our materials are written and spoken so you can hear, see and learn fast 3. USE REAL PROFFESIONAL MATERIALS This will help you to be immersed as soon as possible in the foreign language environment. All the recordings you will listen to are made by native professionals. 4. LISTEN TO YOUR OWN VOICE Self-recording is the best approach for reviewing and eliminating diction and pronunciation and grammar errors from your speech. It develops Self-Awareness, which in turn lends itself to Self-Correction. Studies have shown that we focus most on voices that are similar to our own, therefore, by listening to your own voice the learning process is greatly accelerated. You can record your own voice, compare it with the native recordings and exercise until you speak with perfect accent 5. WORK WITH A MODEL Pronunciation deteriorates easily, so the longer you go without checking yours against a native, the more likely you are to revert to your mother language speech habits. Check your pronunciation often until good speech habits are firmly established in the new language. Use this application to achieve all these and more while having fun with it!
