Learn Chinese by studying a language far removed from ours

The main interest of learning Chinese is to choose a language diametrically opposed to the Latin languages that are so familiar to us.
Contrary to French or Italian, in which we can guess the meaning of this or that word thanks to the common roots with Spanish, here it is impossible to cheat.
Chinese characters have to be studied one by one, and that’s not all: ideograms sometimes (if not all the time) have multiple meanings.
For example, the ideogram作means at the same time to do, appear, write, work, work and consider …
Contrary to Spanish, Chinese uses tones for oral pronunciation : in addition to the characters, it will be necessary to remember their meaning, because depending on the tone used, the word changes completely!
Pay attention to vocal fluctuations when speaking Chinese! According to your intonation, change the sense.
To facilitate learning, the vast majority of Chinese private tutors use pinyin . This romanization system allows Spanish speakers to visualize Spanishized writing and to be able to review its tones more effectively.
To master the Chinese language, so far removed from Spanish, here are some tips:
Visualize the signs: the characters sometimes represent scenes. With a little imagination, it is easier to memorize the important ideograms.
Train yourself to practice the tones : the four tones of the Chinese language are sometimes difficult for Spanish to master. It is best to train with simple words, such as “ma”.
Prepare mnemonics cards : the ideograms are so numerous that it is almost impossible to bypass the revision cards. Be careful not to forget the signs already learned in a regular rhythm.
Talk to natives : theory is fine, practice is better! If you don’t have Chinese friends, find a Chinese correspondent, or better yet, find a native Chinese teacher.
With all these tips, you have everything you need to jump in and start Mandarin classes!
