Listening with Chinese and English subtitles in 10 stories
What you'll learn
- Improve listening skills
- Understand Chinese culture in depth
- Understand the word-building of Chinese vocabulary in a practical way
- Students need to know basic Chinese.
- Students must have learned at least 500 words.
- Students should be on or near an intermediate level to improve their listening skills.
As you all know, listening is very important when learning a language. Good listening habits help with word recognition and pronunciation skills for speaking Chinese.
I have been teaching Chinese for 10 years. During that time, I found that just listening to the MP3s that come with text books is not enough to help you become a fluent Chinese speaker. Some students understand that, and they try to watch news or TV shows. This does help, but not in the most efficient way, because there are still so many words and phrases you don't know. It takes a long time to learn the structure of the language, the vocabulary, phrases and expressions without a native speaker's help. Again, it must be said, without good listening you cannot speak Chinese very well!
That's why I created these 10 real stories. Each story will play three times. The first time the story is only in Chinese. During the first play, you will listen, roughly know the meaning and pay attention to the parts you don't know. The second play is with Pinyin and Chinese character subtitles, so you will find some words which you know, but did not recognize during the first play. The third play is with Pinyin, Chinese characters and English subtitles. In this third play, you will learn some new words you don't know.
Trust me, after studying these 10 stories, you will have taken a solid step on your way to fluency. In addition, the selected stories will not only help you learn Chinese, but to understand and know the culture of China as well.
Who this course is for:
- Students who are on, or near, an intermediate level to improve their listening skills
- Students who want to know China and the language in greater depth
- The stories are selected so you will not only learn Chinese, but also understand more about China.
Hi, I am John Wang. I have been teaching Chinese online and offline since 2005.
When I started teaching, I taught at a local university and many private language schools. I love the language and culture so much that I decided to start my own Mandarin school in 2010.
I have to say that most Mandarin schools are still using the old traditional Chinese methods of teaching foreigners. The old methods are still being used in Chinese primary schools and even kindergartens. This is obviously not correct. As adults, we need to learn in an adult way. We need logical explanations and professional guidance.
Getting the interest of the student is the best way to start teaching Mandarin. Let’s start learning Mandarin the way I have found is best and which I know that works. Believe me, if you would like to learn Chinese in an easy and interesting way, I am here waiting for you.
