Mandarin is an amazing language to learn, rich in culture, philosophy and tradition. It is quickly becoming vitally important in our modern world and many people have begun the task of learning Mandarin. In some ways it is much easier to learn and in others far more challenging. Our Chinese courses are set up to insure you get a comprehensive approach possible as you learn.
Grammar is very simple. There are no verb conjugations at all. Each verb has one form used for all tenses and all persons. Nouns have no singular, plural, masculine, feminine or neuter forms. There are no noun declensions. Sentences are put together in a very simple and easy to understand way. The old expression: "Long time no see!" is a direct translation from a common saying in Chinese and shows how simple it is.
The transliteration system used in China - called Pinyin - uses the Roman alphabet to represent Chinese words. It really makes it easier to learn to pronounce and read Chinese.
Words are very short usually consisting of one or two syllables. They directly represent the concepts they describe: e.g.. fire mountain = volcano.
Chinese does not have many sounds. Many of them have a direct equivalent in English and all of them can be learned rather easily by English speakers.
