08 Jul Chinese: The most difficult language in the world?
Is Chinese really the most difficult language in the world?
Ever heard that Chinese is the most difficult language in the world to learn?
On the contrary, Chinese is both a beautifully logical and surprisingly simple language to master. *Most* Chinese words are composed by two characters, which can be moved around, shifted and merged with other characters to form new words.
nĭ (你）= you
hăo (好) = good
nĭ hăo （你好）= hello
hǎo (好） = good
chī (吃）= eat
hǎo chī (好吃）= tasty/delicious
With over 900 million native speakers and millions more now learning it as a second language, Mandarin has quickly become the language to learn of the 21st century. Not only is learning Mandarin an intellectually rewarding pursuit, but in a world where China is taking a leading stance in so many areas, learning Mandarin equips you with an invaluable, lifelong skill that puts you ahead of the rest.
Not as difficult as you thought, right? We recommend Comprehensive 30 to all our students who want to start a intensive Mandarin study course.
