Why Study Abroad in China
In addition to being the ultimate cultural immersion experience, studying abroad in China is one of the very best ways to learn the Chinese language. This is obviously because you have more chances to chat up native Chinese speakers. Studying abroad in China and learning from native speakers of Chinese is certainly the most direct way to learn. There's no way you can forget how to say "Hello" in Mandarin after hearing friendly strangers say it every day. While learning a new language you should try to practice speaking as much as you can and there will be plenty of time for daily practice when you’re snagging a taxi or eating a meal using your speaking skills. When you listen to native speakers, you’ll become accustomed to hearing the most authentic pronunciation of Chinese and be able to replicate their accent. (It sure beats listening to CDs over and over!) Chinese people love to help out people who are studying abroad in their country and during conversation they will give you helpful hints allowing you to learn Chinese all the more easily. There’s no need to worry about making mistakes. Every great linguist has had their ups and downs. In any case you can rest assured that you are leaps and bounds ahead of folks trying to learn by themselves
