I got a friend who is interested in long lists of Chinese sentences.

That's the way he learns Chinese. He said :

"Short stories are not suitable for me, just want sentences with new vocabulary".


Ok . I've thought : "it must be boring".

(However, his level is now better than mine...)

Perhaps the younger you are the more the "intensive exposure" works ... (That friend is younger than me and my brain is no more like a spounge which absorbs a great amount of information).

And the good point for him : he can describe and comment on lots of things because he already memorized so much vocabulary ! In my case, there are many unknown words and I often can't build my sentences to create a conversation ... and according to me, we need to create a dialog to exchange with anybody.

Yes, learning sentence by sentence is different from learning character by character, you can consider that a sentence is indeed a tiny kind of story, with something expressed, with feelings ...

So, as I am concerned, this keeps on bringing up questions about the relevance of the method ! My friend follows a more effective path maybe. I still don't know.

I'm going to stick to the lessons and the short stories ... Currently reading "a real mystery in Lopnur" (justlearnchinese.com) with the help of an "all-in-one" page of mine ...

Who is using a SRC (spaced repetition system) ? Do you think it can boost your long-term memory ? (see my posts about Anki)
