Chinese grammar. Why learn it?

Learning the Chinese grammar can seem like the hardest and most boring task when you start learning the language. Most Chinese teachers would start by teaching you the grammar rules. That’s probably why you hated doing Chinese grammar exercises in school. We don’t blame you. We feel the same way.

Though it’s not the first thing you have to learn, knowing the Chinese grammar has its importance and sooner or later you will have to deal with it. The secret is taking courses designed to teach you grammar without the need to study endless rules. How? By absorbing the basic Chinese grammar rules while listening to natives having real conversations. That’s how kids learn. At the age of 5, kids are already fluent in their native language. How can this be? They don’t even know what a verb is at that age. It’s because they hear their parents speaking. That’s the best approach for you as well. That’s exactly how we, at Mondly, approach learning the Chinese grammar and millions of people worldwide appreciate our innovative app. By listening to natives, you will know advanced Chinese grammar rules to use in real life conversations even if you never studied the rules themselves.

Did you know?

How hard is it to learn the Mandarin Chinese grammar? Not as hard as you might think. The Mandarin grammar has only one tense, no verb conjugations, no plurals or strange genders like most European languages. So, surprisingly, the Chinese grammar is really simple.

This cannot be said about the use of tones. Mandarin Chinese is a tonal language where intonation and the pitch matter a lot. By changing the intonation you change the meaning of what you are saying. For example, saying "táng" with a rising tone means sugar while "tāng" with a high tone means soup. The Mandarin Chinese language has 4 basic tones: rising, falling, flat and both rising and falling. You can tell which tone to use by looking at the marks above the vowels used in Pinyin, the Latin writing system making the Chinese alphabet easier to understand by non-Asians.
