If you learn to speak Chinese
without proper tones you might as well be half deaf and dumb. Almost no one is going to understand you. No one except your friends studying Chinese and your teacher, the same teacher used to students mangling her language.
However, once you step outside the warm cocoon of the classroom, everything changes. Chinese people can guess what you’re trying to say, right? Wrong. The reason why is simple but hard to fathom for people who didn't grow up speaking a highly tonal language - to a native speaker of Chinese, the difference between tones is just as pronounced as that between consonants - perhaps even greater. In Chinese, if you get the tones right people can usually understand you. If you get everything right but the tones, you will be unintelligible to most native speakers of Chinese. You can save yourself some pain and embarassment by mastering tones early on, Therefore learn to speak Chinese with find a professional and systematic way for correcting your tone is important enough. Our Mandarin Garden school focuses on the four key language skill areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing, while considerable attention is also placed on pronunciation, oral communication and the appropriate usage of language in daily situations.
