Learning Chinese is not only to acquire a language skill, but also to learn a new way of thinking. The vivid differences in languages reflect how Chinese people think differently from you. Through learning its language, you’ll have a deep understanding of Chinese culture and know better how to work with and deal with Chinese people in general. Here are a few examples. In Mandarin, there is:
- 1) No conjugations: the verb stays the same; irrelevant to the subject, the tense or anything else
- 2) No tenses: no change of verbs. tenses are expressed through particles which are extremely easy to use
- 3) No genders: no such a concept as feminine or masculine or neutral words
- 4) No articles: no such thing as “the” or “a“, or “dit” “dat” as in Dutch
- 5) No plurals: nouns stay unchanged. The context or the quantifiers will make clear if it’s singular or plural
In short: Chinese is easier than you think. The course will guarantee you an exciting study experience!
