Learning a foreign language via online video lessons isn’t a new concept nowadays, but it is a new way of learning habit for people who are used to learn in a classroom setting.
Each Chinese character is a syllable with a tone as the examples below. And a character itself usually carries a meaning but sometimes it’s not a word.
This is one of the most commonly asked questions among my foreign students and friends since from my previous post(SHOULD I LEARN CHINESE CHARACTERS? ) that we know there are around 8000 characters out there according to a Chinese dictionary.
It’s a very good question, and the answer is definitely YES!! Learning Chinese characters is a huge part of learning Chinese though it’s not an easy task.
One of the most commonly asked questions by students are “How many hours does it take to learn Chinese?” “How many/ how long do I need to learn Chinese to understand people and start speaking?”
