This course adopts the Natural Approach
How do native Chinese people learn their language? Through listening, listening, and listening. Before Chinese kids know a word's definition, they try to mimic the sounds again and again. Then, by being exposed to different uses of the same word, they get closer and closer to the exact meaning of each word. That is how they learn a language. It's also how you learn your mother language. This is also what my outstanding students do in my years of observation. No rote memorization, no pain at all. Only imitation and comprehension! Therefore, this course will follow the natural, yet the truly efficient way for learning Chinese. By the end of the course, you will be able to master the pronunciation, various uses of the words covered. Besides, you will be more confident when hearing those words spoken.
The words you will learn
You will learn loanwords for food. Why are these words included? They are chosen according to three principles, basic, high frequency, and HSK (Chinese proficiency test). Basic words refer to vocabulary well known by Chinese children under 6 grades (12 years-old) in elementary school. High frequency words are selected according to the Chinese corpus of Academia Sinica. The top 20% words of the corpus is covered in my database. This is to sort out the most frequently used words. The last one is the words on HSK word list. My selection of vocabulary words helps you learn the most useful words first.
This course includes:
· Native speaker’s pronunciation
· Slow animation and sound for Pinyin (Chinese pronunciation)
· 9-times repetition for each target word
· Both simplified and traditional characters
· Three hints for each new word
· Collocations: including measure word, compound noun, adjective, verb before the noun, verb after the noun

· Repeat the new word three times after me.
· Pay attention to the Chinese characters.
· When listening to the hints, try your best to figure out what the word means. You are advised to pause to think about the given information. After thinking, check the answer. This step helps you relate the meaning to the sound.
· After you learn the meaning, repeat after me three times to reinforce the relation between the meaning and the word.
· Repeat each collocation after me. In this session, instead of rote learning, focus on associating the meaning of the words in combination to the target word in order to reconfirm the word’s definition. Always pay attention to the definition, instead of the translation in English.
· Lastly, repeat after me three times. While doing this, recollect the word's meaning.
