With over one billion speakers, Chinese is the most commonly spoken language in the world. This ancient language has existed for thousands of years. There are many reasons that you may choose to study Chinese. If you are a student at a local school like Ocean Lakes High School or First Colonial High School, you may need to complete a foreign language requirement to be able to graduate. If you are a bit older and attend a local college like Regent University or a school further away like the University of Virginia, you may be looking to earn Chinese credits. In the business world, the ability to speak a foreign language such as Chinese can make you a more appealing candidate for many different jobs. You may want to enrich your travel possibilities or simply learn more about the culture, history, and philosophy of China.

What kinds of concepts or skills can I learn during Virginia Beach Chinese lessons?

Chinese is a very difficult language for native English speakers to learn. Chinese has a number of features that are not present in English. Chinese is a tonal language, which adds an extra layer of complexity to the language. A word can have a different meaning depending on which tone it is spoken in, and since English does not have tones, this aspect of Chinese can be extremely hard for English speakers to understand. Additionally, Chinese does not have an alphabet. Instead of a series of letters that are arranged to create words, Chinese contains tens of thousands of characters that stand for particular words or ideas. This means that those learning Chinese need to memorize a large number of characters to read the language. Additionally, these characters are pictographic, which means that the characters themselves often visually represent the idea. However, this makes it impossible for the character to represent the sound of the word so, in addition to memorizing the character, you must memorize the sound of the word as well. Chinese characters do not indicate their grammatical form so context is essential to understand which words are acting as which part of speech.

Formal language learning can help you to make the most of your study time. Working with an expert who can speak Chinese well can help you to know what to study first. By focusing on fundamentals, you are able to build from a solid base as you continue your study. Even if you have been studying Chinese for a while, a formal plan can help you to continue your studying in an organized and methodical way. Additionally, a structured environment can provide opportunities to speak and converse in Chinese. Holding conversations in a language is one of the most difficult and most important ways to improve your understanding of the language. When you are in a conversation, you must be able to understand the other person's words, formulate your own response, arrange the words in an effective order, and pronounce the words correctly. Having regular opportunities to practice all of these skills at the same time can help you to internalize the language.

What can Virginia Beach Chinese lessons do to help me study?

There are two main paths for you to choose in your Chinese study. You can work in a group environment with a Virginia Beach Chinese class. This option is great for those who prefer a classroom environment. For those who would rather learn in a one-on-one setting, you can work with a Virginia Beach Chinese tutor. Both of these options can help you to learn Chinese effectively, and they are both easy to schedule and attend.

In a Virginia Beach Chinese class, you and your classmates can hear live lectures from your instructor in a virtual classroom. As you listen to the lectures, you are able to ask questions to clarify your understanding of the content. You are also able to participate in class discussions that allow you to hear the perspectives of your classmates. By engaging with the different viewpoints in the class, you can explore the language from a variety of angles. These questions and discussions can also help your instructor to know where the members of the class need more help. They can allocate more time to those concepts. You can also meet with your instructor outside of class to get extra help. There are new classes that start every month, and there are options for either two or four-week classes. You can choose a session that suits your logistical needs.

You can work with a Virginia Beach Chinese tutor in either online or in-person sessions. During these sessions, you can study the material that is most pertinent to your goals. You can also seek out materials that accommodate your learning style, which can help you to process the information more effectively. This sort of personalization puts you in control of your learning. Whether you are learning new vocabulary, practicing your conversational abilities, or developing your understanding of Chinese grammar, you and your Virginia Beach tutor can interact in ways that increase your knowledge and confidence.
