Learn Mandarin Online from Teachers and Students
大家好！ I'm a first-year college student, and I just finished my first quarter of Mandarin. I have about four weeks of break until I go back for my second quarter, and I hope to study some Chinese during that time!
I'm hoping to become fluent eventually, and probably study abroad in China, so I'm just wondering if anyone has suggestions for words/phrases/grammar rules I should learn while I'm on break? I really like Chinese and want to use the break to learn more instead of forgetting the language while I'm not speaking it as much.
You can recite some words or phrases, meanwhile watch some animations that are easy to understand.step by step.
A good place to start is having a look at this How to Learn Chinese Ebook
The important if you want to become fluent is that you use it. Only reading books and memorizing grammar is not enough. Are there any Chinese students at your university you might be able to start to make a connection with? I would also download WeChat and try the Look Around function to make Chinese friends in your area.
Of course in the long run a trip to China is the best way of improving your Mandarin, but you might be able to find quite a few Chinese speakers in your area too.
