Seven Best Ways to Learn Chinese Online

There are loads of free resources online for your reference for learning Chinese, but you might have wasted too much time on looking for a practical one. Let’s jump out from that pool and I will show you seven best ways to learn Chinese online. 

An electronic dictionary is a necessary helper.

The most basic and necessary tool for a language learner should be the dictionary. Nowadays, it’s convenient and easy to download helpful and useful electronic dictionaries on your mobile phone. For Chinese learners, I would recommend Pleco as your first choice. You can look up Chinese words by drawing them on the screen without worrying about stroke order mistakes, and you can also look up unknown Chinese words using your device’s camera. It also supports looking up words in a document.

Pleco owns a huge and growing collection of licensed dictionary databases, with the recording from two different native speakers for 34,0000 Mandarin words with Cantonese support. 

Use tool smart can help you learn the Chinese language faster and better.

Attend Online Chinese classes at Keats School

 

With great convenience and flexibility, online Chinese classes are normally considered one of the best ways to learn Chinese online. An ideal online Chinese course should have a systematic and outstanding teaching team and teaching program. No matter what’s your learning purpose or goal, Keats School can satisfy your requirements. Your course would be customized based on your actual needs. If you’re preparing for a test, Keats will help you with test skills. If you want to learn more Chinese in circumstances of business and trade, Keats will show you proper business terms and etiquette. If language proficiency is your goal, Keats will help you master Chinese within the shortest period. If you got interested in history and culture, Keats would combine your course with more cultural and historical backgrounds. 

Studying with Keats School is not just about accepting knowledge from your teacher passively. You could actively involve in the customization of your online course. What’s more, this will help you accumulate self-confidence in studying Chinese and make real progress too. 

Watching Chinese films 

Watching Chinese movies can significantly benefit your Chinese learning, and it is one of the best ways to learn Chinese online as well. By listening and observing how people deliver real conversations in different circumstances related to authentic life contexts, you could cultivate a better language sense of Mandarin Chinese. Phrases and expressions that are frequently used in Chinese daily life would be well demonstrated in films too. Your Chinese proficiency could be facilitated when the Chinese films you picked have suitable language materials for learning. 

Keats has listed out several classic Chinese films that are suitable for Chinese learners, and you can find out more in this article EIGHT FILMS YOU NEED TO WATCH FOR LEARNING CHINESE

Learning Chinese grammar online 

Be bored with heavy and monotonous grammar textbooks? Grammar websites are one of the best ways to learn Chinese online, making grammar review and vocabulary memorization much easier and more convenient. 

The websites below are available for your choice:

Chinese gratis 

https://chinese.gratis/chinese-dictionary/

AllSet Learning 

https://resources.allsetlearning.com/chinese/grammar/A1_grammar_points

There is a disadvantage about learning through these websites that you have no one to consult from when you confront learning problems. Based on that, I would suggest you take websites as a supplementary resource after your online course with the native teacher.

Keats Blog

From this Blog, you can find various information.

I really enjoy this place because we have private Mandarin lessons. I took the 6-hour program, 4 hours in the morning, 2 in the afternoon. Even though it is quite a lot, the teaching is complimentary. This is very helpful because I could review what I did before and learn new things. My 2 teachers are fantastic. We live in the school, so it is convenient. It is interesting to me to meet people from all over the world.
