Chinese is the most commonly spoken language in the world, with over one billion native speakers. Mandarin and Cantonese are the two most common dialects of the language. Chinese is the only pictographic language that is still in wide use today. As the most popular language in the world, learning Chinese can provide several benefits. As the world becomes increasingly globalized, the ability to speak multiple languages is more and more valuable. Many businesses strongly prefer employees who speak other languages, and because so many people are native Chinese speakers, Chinese is a very appealing language to learn. Many universities such as the University of Arizona offer majors in the Chinese language. Learning Chinese can also be a rewarding personal challenge or way to discover more about a fascinating culture.

What sort of skills can I learn during Tucson Chinese lessons?

Chinese presents a number of challenges for the native English speaker. Because it is pictographic, there is no alphabet to learn. Rather, there are over 20,000 regularly used characters that depict words or ideas. There are no plural forms in Chinese, which can be a tricky concept for English speakers to comprehend. Additionally, Chinese is a tonal language. This means that, in the case of Mandarin, for example, the meaning of a word sound changes based on whether it is pronounced in the flat, rise, falling then rising, or falling tone. This aspect of Chinese can be extremely difficult to grasp. Because of the way Chinese is structured, the grammar and sentence structure of the language are far different than those of English.

Learning Chinese requires a great deal of time and effort. In addition to learning the different characters, you will need to have opportunities to practice speaking the language and engaging in conversations to thoroughly absorb the language. Like any language, it is important to understand the grammar of the language and key vocabulary words. Learning Chinese also requires learning Pinyin, which is a way to translate Chinese words into English characters based on their pronunciation.

Having a structured environment to learn a language is a great way to move through this content systematically. By working with a Tucson Chinese tutor or attending a language class, you will have a guide who can help you learn the language by starting with the building blocks. Even if you have been studying Chinese for a while, the chance to work on specific skills with an expert can be invaluable. These services are also a great chance to practice your conversational and listening abilities.

What can Tucson Chinese lessons do to help me learn the language?

The main options for your Chinese preparation are working with either a private tutor or learning in a classroom environment. You can choose between these options based on which service suits your needs best. Each of these services offers online options which allow you to learn Chinese from anywhere with an internet connection.

Attending a Tucson Chinese class gives you the chance to learn from a skilled instructor alongside your classmates in a live virtual classroom. You can listen to your instructor teach the key features and skills of the language. You can also ask questions and talk through the material with your classmates. These sorts of live interaction give you many of the same benefits of an in-person class, but with greater convenience. You will have opportunities to practice conversation, increase your knowledge of Chinese characters, and develop your vocabulary. Your instructor can shift the focus of the class to areas where the group needs help, and you can meet with your instructor outside of class for extra help as well. The interactions you have with your instructor and classmates can be valuable parts of your Chinese study. You have the opportunity to hear different perspectives and viewpoints about the material you are learning, which can help you to internalize the skills and concepts necessary to speak and read Chinese well.

There are new classes that start monthly. You can decide whether you want to attend a two or four-week class based on your goals and situation. Because these sessions are online, it is easy for you to pick the session that meets at the best time for you. You can study after work, during your lunch break, or over the weekend.

When you work with a Tucson Chinese tutor, you can choose between either in-person sessions or sessions that take place online via our Live Learning Platform. During these sessions, you can tailor your sessions to your goals and needs. You and your Tucson Chinese tutor can focus on the material that is most pertinent to your goals, and you can learn in ways that fit your learning style.
