Learning Mandarin is a fascinating experience as more and more people learn it. However, as fascinating as it is, it is also not complex like many people thought. In fact, with practice and commitment, you will most likely find it very easy to Learn Mandarin in Singapore.
In Linda Mandarin, we have developed ways on how you can make it easy to breeze through the process of learning Mandarin, by practicing the basic tones. The language relies on tones to give meaning to the words. Thus, it is essential to master the four basic tones first.
When you joining our Mandarin trial class, it enables you to learn the basic tones easily and memorize basic vocabulary and numbering. It will be a great help in learning Mandarin if you can memorise the basic vocabularies used for greetings and conversations, as well as, how to count in Mandarin. You will have an easier time understanding sentences if you know Pinyin and already familiar with some of the words.
Pinyin is the writing system used for writing Mandarin using Roman letters. If you have a good understanding of the system, it will be easier for you to write, read and pronounce without having to proceed to the complex characters directly. Join our Mandarin group course and you will be assured of the highest quality in language learning with a passionate, experienced Mandarin tutor.
