Speak Mandarin Chinese like it’s your native language
Learning a different language other than the one you were taught growing up can be notably challenging for anyone. The experience relates to being a kid all over again and starting with a clean slate, trying to understand the words of a foreign dialect through the distinguished sounds of each syllable and carefully contemplating whether it’s the right pronunciation and articulation, not to mention intonation.
Some languages are hard to learn, others can be harder. The Chinese language, for one, can be considered as one of the most difficult languages to study especially if you’re an English speaker. It sits right at the top of the shelf alongside Arabic, Russian, and Polish, if that’s to say something.
Apart from speaking the language, there is also the matter of reading and writing in Chinese which is a completely different story, and both that entail more patience, effort, and understanding. To put into perspective, learning the Chinese language in terms of speaking, reading, and writing can be classified into certain levels. Reading is slightly less taxing than having to write in Chinese, but it still requires an outstanding commitment since all the characters must be taken into memory with utmost accuracy. For writing, all the strokes of the characters must be perfected. A single mistake can alter the meaning of the message and result in miscommunication. Speaking may be considered the easiest among the three aspects of the language, and learning it is just the same as learning any other language.
Because of the difficulty associated with learning the Chinese language, whole dedication and commitment is needed to gain mastery of the craft. One is required to invest a generous amount of time and exercise a lot of patience and regard for one’s self.
If you’re trying to learn Chinese, don’t be discouraged about the struggles of doing so. In fact, it should motivate you more to learn. Once you have mastered the Chinese language, this could mean great things for you, not just in academics, but also in terms of work opportunities as well as human connections. While quite a handful to learn, it’s also one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Becoming fluent in the Chinese language creates more merits than you could expect.
Being able to communicate through and understand the Chinese language should not be taken for granted. It’s a skill worth picking up and flaunting. Aside from the occasional bragging rights, there’s an abundance of advantages that learning this language holds.
Instant human connection anywhere in the world. With over 1.2 billion speakers and rapidly growing still, speaking Mandarin easily creates an open line of communication between you and 1.2 billion people wherever you are on this planet.
More job opportunities. Most of the leading companies in the fields of information technology, electronics, digital marketing, and telecommunications are based in Chinese-speaking countries or are founded by Chinese businessmen. If you’re looking into a career with the best companies in those industries, learning Chinese might just get you there.
Travel easier. Whether you have plans to visit China or any country in Asia, becoming fluent in Mandarin can surely get you around without the fuss. There will be no unwanted miscommunications with a local as well as frustrating experiences. And even if you’re not traveling to China or Asia, you can expect that speaking Chinese will still become handy as more and more people from China are piling in all over the world.
Enjoy Chinese food-- the authentic kind. Even learning Chinese does have its perks in terms of eating and palatability. It’s a little known secret that restaurants that serve the most authentic Chinese food have little to no English on their menu. If you want to surprise your taste buds with the real thing, you might as well learn Chinese.
Stimulate your brain. Studying Chinese, or just about any other language, goes beyond social benefits. It’s also a form of self-improvement, an accomplished means to exercise your brain. Because the Chinese language, characters, and accents are relatively strange to a first-time learner, the challenges to study stirs the cognitive function of the brain. You’ll be doing yourself a favor by cracking the books of the Chinese language.
