How to learn Chinese effectively – Interview with 毛立思 Maurice Paulusse

As a Chines teacher, one of the most frequent questions people ask me is: “is it really possible to master Chinese?” The answer is of course yes. Today I had the pleasure to interview my friend 毛立思 (máo lì sī) Maurice who speaks fluent Chinese, to share with you his secrets of learning Chinese.

Maurice attended Leiden University from 2007 to 2013, during which time he intensively studied Chinese and went for an exchange to Taiwan too. Not only does he speaks fluent Chinese, he also writes perfect Chinese characters. According to him, one of the most important thing to improve your Chinese is to bring your Chinese from classroom to everyday life and create opportunities via language exchange, watching news, etc to practice.
