I am excited to announce to you that here comes the fastest class for acquiring spoken Chinese. The quickest way of acquiring spoken language is the way we learned a language during our childhood: from mouth to mouth, without any written script. While without an explaining medium language, a baby has to figure out the meaning of the sentences from recurring situations, we, as adult learners, can even further enhance the speed by minimal, explaining medium language (here is English). This course is the first sequel of a four-course "College Spoken Chinese Series: The quickest way of learning conversational Chinese". Each course takes you only 4 hours (30-40 minutes each day for the two dialogues of each lesson, you can finish the course in a week), the four courses will allow you to master spoken Chinese included in two year's college Chinese curriculum (without the written character requirement of course) in just 16 hours. You will be able to conduct conversation fluently in all realms of daily life, including greeting, family, time, hobbies, visit friends, make appointment, study Chinese, school life, go shopping, weather, traffic, dining, library, renting apartment, book air ticket, traveling, etc. Not just random teaching of some key sentences in a situation, but full-body real-life conversation that encompasses exactly two year's college Chinese curriculum (based on the same range of vocabulary, grammar and situation dialogues)! This sequence can be for any new-learners of Chinese, but don't mistake it for just new learners! It is immeasurable valuable for those students who have already studied Chinese for years but need to make his pronunciation as accurate, his speech as fluent as native speakers through the teacher's all-talking head videos emphasizing the mouth shape of pronunciation, the correct tone and sentence cadence that you cannot acquire otherwise.
Each dialogue is taught in three lectures. The first lecture will teach you the meaning of each phrase and sentence in the dialogue with the help of medium language---English, but the main emphasis is to lead you speak after me through the whole dialogue as soon as you understand them. During this lecture, you may glance at the printed out PDF of the text (attached in the resource section in the first lecture of each dialogue) with its pinyin text for identifying the sound in my talk-head pronunciation, particularly students who have never studied pinyin and not familiar with Chinese pronunciation. In the second lecture, I will lead you to speak through the text twice and practice the dialogue with you in a new, invented context where we act as two sides speaking the dialogue. The third lecture is an acting video in which you can review your dialogue and speak after me again. I didn't put in pinyin subtitles in the talking head videos, because I think it will distract you from recalling the full sentence you speak after me, instead, you will just spell out the pinyin one by one mechanically, without being able to duplicate the full sentence language out of your memory when you speak after me. After the first lecture, you should not even look at the PDF while speaking after me, you should speak after me like a child learning his first language---from mouth to mouth, observing the mouth shape in pronunciation, imitate the pronunciation and tones as closely as possible, draw from memory the whole sentence structure after you heard it, on the spot. That is how you can maximize the speed of learn spoken language.
You don't need to have any prerequisite for taking this course. The spoken Chinese starts from the most basic and quickly reaches near-intermediate level. There is pinyin introduction at the beginning to ensure those students who have never had pinyin study to learn it quickly, and identify the sounds in my later lessons and pronounce properly. However, for these students, it is highly recommended that you would acquire my "College Mandarin Chinese on Your Own Beginning Level" to have its introduction section with its much more detailed and plenty practice of pinyin to be familiar with Chinese sounds, as they are the basis of pronouncing Chinese sounds accurately.
You will see after four hours, (over 30 lectures), you are able to speak, with near native-speaker accuracy and fluency some major situational dialogues, the content of which a college student has to learn in one full semester (without the written requirement), in five months. For new learners of Chinese, this course will drastically increase your ability of spoken Chinese in a very short period of time, for older learners of Chinese, even those who have studied Chinese for years, it is also very valuable in cultivating your spoken Chinese to a native speaker accuracy and fluency. So take it now!
