I have warned Narimah several times but since like it hasn't gotten to her head. On more time and she's banished for good.

hi

the difference between studying a language and others is that language needs keep in practicing. same as i learn english, and have to speak and read continuously. recently i am looking for partners to advance my english language. I speak Mandarin. Although i can teach Mandarin, I would like to be a language partner because of less teaching experience. glad to be friends with all.

That was how I learn it 18 years ago.
I beg to differ. Learning chinese with pin ying is the best. Especially if your english is strong. It helps you to recognise words easier in a conversation as opposed to just memorising each word by heart.

You might want to check out this site:
http://www.scciob.edu.sg/

They offer various chinese programmes including conversational chinese. Prices are quite resonable too.

My advice? Hit it all and don't restrict yourself, be it pinyin nor movies nor reading nor newspapers nor writing.

Mandarin is doable FREE of monetary costs but I see there're teachers here, so I'll disappear now...
