It's hard to know where to start when deciding to learn something new, especially a language as difficult as Mandarin. That's why you need to find easy and fun learning tools every day.
It is possible to do this by taking courses, such as those offered by the Charlemagne Linguistic Academy, but beyond the time spent in class, when practice becomes necessary to put new knowledge to good use, small games with objectives is one of the good techniques to adopt. For example, that of practicing a few words forming a small sentence in Mandarin, every day, for ten days.
Small daily challenges
Learning a new language is rarely a full-time thing unless you do it in a professional setting for a particular job. So, it can be laborious to find the time and follow a learning plan that requires a lot of investment. Obviously, it is necessary to put energy into it, but it is also important to have fun while learning.
To do this, a good way not to get discouraged is to set small daily goals, for example, repeating a series of three words to yourself in the car on the way to the office every day, or having your coffee while morning or even in your shower. Integrate your little challenges into your routine and add more words every day, this is a method that applies to both someone who is curious about a language and someone who is a beginner or intermediate
If you fancy taking lessons, you can start right now by learning a few easy words to have fun and practice, like these:
Hello : Nǐhǎo
Good morning : Zǎo
Thank you : Xièxiè
Yes : Shì
No : Bù shi
Good : Hǎo
Today : Jīntiān
Tomorrow : Mingtian
Yesterday : Zuotian
Goodbye : Zàijiàn
