No matter if you are a college student at the University of North Florida, a high school student at The Bolles School looking to fulfill credits, or just someone looking to take up a new language on their own, a Jacksonville Chinese course provided by Varsity Tutors can positively impact your journey to grasping the Chinese language. It can be hard to learn a new language for anyone, even with some background in Chinese. More so, trying to learn a new language in a traditional classroom may not fully engage you in the Chinese language. Some important factors for being successful in learning Chinese is how often you practice your writing and speaking skills in the language. With a Jacksonville Spanish course, you will get to practice these skills, all while in a learning atmosphere with an expert instructor who can immerse you in the Chinese language.

The Chinese language is one of the most popular in the world, with more than one billion native speakers. Chinese has multiple dialects. They include Mandarin, Hakka, Gan, Wu, and Xiang. Of these dialects, Mandarin is the most popular. It is the official language in Taiwan and The People's Republic of China. Historically, Cantonese is the most popular dialect among Chinese speakers in the United States. All written forms of these dialects share the same writing system. Written Chinese is thousands of years old, with evidence of it dating back to the Shang Dynasty. The Shang Dynasty ruled from 1700 to 1027 B.C. There is no form of alphabet in any dialect of Chinese. Over 50,000 characters exist in the language, with each syllable represented by a symbol. Of these 50,000 symbols, only around 20,000 are regularly used. Most of the Chinese language is communicated through around 2,500 characters. Today, Chinese is the only current pictographic language. Most of the Chinese characters used in modern times come for drawings done by ancient people trying to describe items they saw. Symbols are not letters, so they give no clues as to how they should be pronounced and each symbol has to be learned individually.

One of the toughest languages to learn is Chinese. This is because there is little that is the same as English, and it is very hard to grasp the character system. However, learning Chinese can help you professionally in fields such as international trade, business, journalism, and more. With a Jacksonville Chinese course, you can have the opportunity to be immersed in the language.

What will a Jacksonville Chinese class go over?

Understanding a language that's new to you can be hard. That's why a Jacksonville Chinese class can go over all the rules, concepts, and fundamentals that you need to build your command of the Chinese language. The Chinese language is tonal. That means a word's meaning is based on the tone that is used. The tones for Mandarin Chinese are rising, flat, falling then rising, and falling. Other dialects can have around nine tones. Another concept that can be hard to grasp is that the Chinese language has no plurals, verb inflections, or articles. The English language is full of these things. All words in Chinese only have one grammatical form, meaning there is no such thing as plural word forms being marked with an "s" at the end. Nouns retain their original form no matter if they are plural or singular. This is a very hard rule to understand for English speakers, but once this rule is understood, Chinese is much easier to comprehend. Learning that English words can change for can be difficult for Chinese speakers, too. Pronouns are another topic of study. Pronouns have different characters based on gender. Characters look the same but are pronounced differently. Some other topics of discussion are Chinese culture, customs, and traditions, Chinese history, sentence structure and grammar, reading Chinese, common phrases, and verbs. You will have plenty of resources for learning all these topics in a Chinese class.

How will a Jacksonville Chinese class help me learn?

Your Jacksonville Chinese class will be held online in an interactive classroom. It is led by an instructor that is an expert in certain dialects of the Chinese language. In the class, you will be able to communicate and interact with classmates and your instructor, making this online class feel almost in person. Having access to classmates and an instructor will also help you be engaged in activities and conversations within the class. By having easy access to discussions in the class over the internet, you might quickly boost your Chinese speaking and writing abilities. Because the whole class is online, you will never have to commute to class, meaning you can find your favorite study space to participate in this class. If you are really stuck on a concept or rule, you can always ask your instructor for help. In fact, you can always set up one-on-one time with your instructor. Of course, if you feel as if you do need to reserve that kind of time, that is fine too. A Chinese class is completely set up to be personalized to you and help you grasp the Chinese language.

Another advantage of taking a Chinese class is that there are lots of sessions to choose from. New classes start monthly, and you can choose between a two-week class and a four-week class. This is a great option for busy professionals and students. Whether you are looking for day classes, night classes, or even weekend ones, Varsity Tutors can find a session for you.
