Online Chinese lessons or offline Chinese classes?

Let’s face it: learning Chinese is mostly about perseverance, about committing to improve your language skills one day at a time. It all comes down to the amount of work you put in to study Chinese and your willingness to stick to it even when it seems too much to handle.

Being human makes us easily distracted and it can sometimes feel hard to stick to something for a long period of time. But there are solutions out there that can help us out. One solution is to enroll in a language school and go to Mandarin classes. However, taking an offline Chinese class can be quite expensive and time consuming.

A second solution is cultural immersion: going to a Chinese speaking country to live the real Chinese dream. No doubt about it, this is the ideal way to learn any language because you get to speak with natives, learn their correct pronunciation and live the way they do. Unfortunately, moving to a different country is something most of us cannot afford.

Don’t let this demoralize you! The good news is you can now immerse yourself in a different culture from the comfort of your own home. How? By enrolling in some of the best online Chinese courses in the world.

Did you know?

Will knowing Mandarin Chinese help you learn any other languages? We’re glad you asked. Even though there are a lot of differences between the languages spoken in East Asia, there are also important similarities. Languages like Vietnamese, Thai, Korean or Japanese have been greatly influenced by Chinese over hundreds of years. For example, both the Korean and the Japanese languages use the Chinese Han characters called Hanja in South Korea and Kanji in Japan.

The Han characters are thought to have originated in the Shang dynasty, about 3000 years ago, from pictographs used to represent objects. Over the years, these characters have became more and more stylized to become what they look like today.
