Reading Chinese Learning method

The advantages of reading aloud

There are many advantages to this method of learning Chinese by reading aloud. Especially for the training of conversational ability is helpful. Conversation is like movement. Often do exercise people should have this experience: no matter which kind of movement, all need to practice every action in peacetime. In this way, the body responds naturally to the game. Conversations are the same. Through repeated sound exercises, the muscles of the mouth form a habitual action, which is naturally spoken in the actual conversation. In addition, when reading aloud, is directly read Chinese, so will not be affected by their own mother tongue. This practice, which is not in the language of the mother tongue, is very helpful to the learning of languages.

Practice method

As for the specific exercise method, first we have to prepare something that sounds like a CD. Listen to the tape first, while listening to the article, this will shorten the reading time of the article. Doing so requires attention to both pronunciation and tone. Try to imitate the pronunciation of the CD. The same exercises need to be repeated several times, the more the better. To be specific, it is best to recite the article to the basic. It sounds like it’s hard to recite an article, but if you read it 100 times 200 times, you’ll probably remember it. It’s important to note that when you do this kind of exercise, the article is better short. A long article can be divided into sections and exercises for a period of time. As for how long interval to study, do several exercises every day, according to your time and character to decide. One of my students was listening to it 10 times on the first day, 9 times the next day, and 8 times on the third day. This is the way he has almost memorized several textbooks, and now Chinese proficiency is very good. This method is particularly recommended for beginners and intermediate students.

Choose a textbook

Teaching materials are especially important when learning Chinese in this way. Especially want to recite the article through this method of the person, to choose a good article difficult degree, length and so on. Especially the length. Too long articles are easy to fatigue, and too short articles have no effect. Therefore, must choose to oneself not much pressure, but the content is more substantial article. About the length of the article, my suggestion is about 1 minutes to read the article is better.

Chinese oral English practice

Chinese oral English practice

This is just a personal way of practicing Chinese oral English, and you can improve it according to your personality and learning environment.

Describe something in Chinese

Location: optional

Tools: no preparation

We have a lot of things around us. Just looking at the room, there’s a lot of stuff. TV, computers, calendars, posters, etc. We can use these as exercises. For example, “hang a calendar on the wall” and “keep a computer on your desk” etc.

It’s just that these things are finite. So, let’s get to the point. For example, “the TV is in the corner of the room, it’s under the DVD”, “now video” and so on.

This exercise can also be done outdoors. It may not be so good to practise in a crowd, so let’s practice silently in our hearts.

I personally prefer to depict people. It’s a great way to practice your imagination while describing the characters you see. For example, if you see a tired middle-aged man, he will feel sorry for him, and the beautiful girl will think, “where is she from?” The more you use your imagination, the more topics you will have.

Photo album review

Tools: past albums

Take a look at the past photo albums and do this exercise: where is this picture taken with whom? What we were doing at that time. Of course, time and place can be said right away. Let’s talk about how we feel at that time. The picture of the person in the picture can also be described together.

Use TV, DVD, etc

Tools: movies, TV series, DVDS, etc

Movies and TV series are often used in Chinese teaching. It is used as a listening teaching material. In fact, movies and TV series are also valuable as dialogue materials. Because it’s conversational practice, you have to talk. It just doesn’t work. So, how do we talk?

1. Play the role

We can play the part we want to play. Pause the picture when he speaks and we can say what we want to say. The important thing is to talk, so the content doesn’t really matter.

2. Assume that you’re in the room for a conversation

This exercise is not to play a role, but to pretend to be there and talk to the characters.

3. Evaluate the lines or the plot

This exercise is similar to the second one. As a third party, we can objectively evaluate the lines or the plot. Assume that you have someone on the other side and let “him” listen to your feelings.

4. translation

Translate your mother tongue into Chinese. This exercise is very good for DVD. Set the DVD’s voice to your mother tongue, the subtitles in Chinese, then block the subtitles with paper and other things to do translation exercises.

As a Chinese, I am very happy. It’s a great honor to be able to share with everyone. I hope that one of the people above can also practice Chinese oral English to help more foreign friends who learn Chinese!
