(Learn Chinese)

English has long been the most widely used language on the internet, and it will be in a very long run.

With Chinese Internet growth rising in the past decade, people cast doubt whether Chinese will be the dominant language on the internet.

Actually it would not happen.

How Difficult it is to Learn Chinese?

Let’s look at these:

  • Who is speaking Chinese? While there are many native Mandarin speakers in the world, the majority of them live in PRC. Different form English which most people learn it as a second language, most Chinese speakers are born and taught in Chinese families.
  • Access to the Internet In recent years, people in PRC could not access and view the widely used web sites such as facebook, google and youtube due to local policies. and
  • Chinese Vocabulary Chinese is character intensive. To learn English, you learn 26 letters and from those letters, you can begin to sound out the word. In Chinese, each word is represented by a unique character, a unique character that must be memorized, both in stroke and sound. a speaker has to know several thousand characters before they can claim any level of fluency. This prevent most Chinese Learners from grasping the Langauge.
  • Chinese Tones Chinese is tonal in nature. Mandarin has an estimated 400 syllables (compared to 12,000 in English). To provide more variety in spoken communication, the language uses four tones (some says it’s four) to differentiate meaning from one word to another. While vocal tone changes, the meaning and Chinese characters will be totally different. Most people who learn Chinese as a foreign language always could not pronounce the tones well.
