Chinese is a popular language to learn, in large part, because of how many people speak Chinese. Chinese is the most commonly spoken language in the world with over one billion native speakers. Learning Chinese can offer a variety of opportunities for business, education, and travel. Students at local high schools such as Greenhills School or Pioneer High School may have foreign language graduation requirements that learning Chinese can fulfill. Colleges and universities like the University of Michigan offer degree programs based on learning the Chinese language and culture. Because of the large number of Chinese speakers, learning Chinese can also help you to stand out in an increasingly globalized business world. Learning Chinese can also help you to enrich your travel plans or opportunities.

What aspects of Chinese can Ann Arbor Chinese lessons help me to study?

Chinese is a particularly difficult language for native English speakers to learn. This is because Chinese differs from English in nearly every aspect of the language. While English has 26 letters that are combined to form words, Chinese has no alphabet. Rather, it contains tens of thousands of individual characters that each stand for a particular idea or word. Learning Chinese requires memorizing as many of these characters as possible. The characters are pictographic, which means that the character acts as a picture of the word. Chinese is also a tonal language. In Chinese, the same word can have a different meaning based on whether the rising, falling then rising, flat, or falling tone is used. This feature is particularly difficult for English speakers to embrace.

Learning a language in a formal context can be a great help to your language learning. Having an expert to guide your Chinese study can help you to learn concepts in an organized and logical manner. Learning the information in the correct order can help you to study efficiently and effectively. Also, a formal language learning context is a great way to develop good habits and avoid negative habits. One of the keys to learning a language thoroughly is having opportunities to hold conversations in the language. By regularly listening, thinking, and speaking in Chinese, you can develop a greater connection between words and their sounds, grammar, and conversational patterns. Working with a tutor or learning in a class can provide you many chances to do this sort of conversational practice.
