A good way to learn mandarin Chinese is to learn Chinese songs. Many people have a natural ability to hear sounds and tones in songs that are difficult to hear when spoken. When you practice singing in Chinese, you’ll actually learn the language more quickly, as your mind becomes accustomed to hearing mandarin language sounds in the songs. When you sing Chinese songs, you’ll find that you are able to speak Chinese better. This could be supplementary to taking Chinese courses or practicing spoken Chinese. Singing Chinese songs are especially helpful as a complementary tool for Chinese language instruction for children. If you can learn Chinese through Chinese songs, you will find it not only very fun, but also a very rewarding Chinese language learning experience.
