What is the significance of white and red in Chinese culture? Why are elevator buttons in many buildings in China 1, 2, 3, 5A, 5, 6? Why does the “4” disappear? Why do the Chinese always refute other people’s praise of them? As we all know, there are many interesting contents in Chinese culture, including life tips, tourism culture, traditional festivals, and so on, which will make people confused when they come to China for the first time. This is the inevitable cultural collision. Learning a lot of Chinese, but they do not understand Chinese culture, sometimes they even make some faults. “Cultural navigation” is also a fixed part of every course, helping every Chinese learner to quickly become a real China expert.
Take you through the difficulties of phonetic intonation one by one to master authentic Mandarin.
Mandarin has four different tones, so it can sometimes sound like singing. However, the four tones of the nice Chinese make every learner feel confused. The same pronunciation with different tones has a different Chinese meaning. In our class, the teacher will introduce you to the Chinese “stave”. Learning mandarin tones is just like learning music with relaxation and pleasure. For learners of different native language backgrounds, we help them to master unique pronunciation skills and predict pronunciation errors in advance so that every Chinese learner can speak standard Chinese with good pronunciation.
