Tip on how to learn Chinese vocabulary effectively: Learn Chinese vocabulary in phrases rather than memorizing vocabulary lists!

How to learn Chinese vocabulary effectively? We know there are many words in Chinese language that have the same or similar meaning but are used in particular contexts. Therefore, many students will find it more efficient to learn vocabulary "in context".

For example: “爸爸 (bàba)” and “父亲 (fùqīn)” both mean “father,” but “爸爸 (bàba)” is frequently used in oral Chinese, and “父亲 (fùqīn)” is used in writing.

So how to learn Chinese characters effectively? Build your vocabulary by learning  contextualized phrases that contain important vocabulary. This is among the best methods when trying to find how to learn Chinese vocabulary.
