80 best Tips to learn Chinese in Beijing

How many CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, you may think that speaking Chinese as a second language?

Learn Chinese if you live in Beijing … You should be able to think about it

The Internet is still buzzing after Mark Zuckerberg unveiled its latest product: its own Mandarin skills.

The majority of the online community was impressed by his dedication – he studied every day, as you should too – and with the courage to stand up in front of a crowd and spend 30 minutes to communicate in a language that it speaks imperfectly.

Public speaking impress Chinese

Public speaking is deeply frightening to many. In fact, it is at the top of the list of most survey responses regarding our greatest fears. It is also something that the Facebook CEO was not particularly good at the beginning of his career. But public speaking in a second language, the one you are not fluent? This is the stuff of nightmares.

Expat life in Beijing

Melanie, I began weekly Mandarin lessons. All other children in the class had been exposed to the language of infanthood, and just two hours a week of Mandarin teaching English in my other life was ineffective. Despite my best intentions, I eventually fell in the fifth year.

I will now try to build a life in China, and over the years have tried almost everything to become fluent in the language, including private tutors, self-learning with ribbons, college classes, and language buddies. Twenty years after I first set foot in my childhood Mandarin class, I’m finally on my way to master the language.

Here are the main lessons I learned along the way. If you avoid my mistakes, and focus on measures that really makes a difference, we hope that your trip to Mandarin fluency will not be quite as difficult or convoluted than mine.

Why Mark Zuckerberg really learn Mandarin ?

Why did he do that? We know it has been studied Chinese for a while, but why someone so powerful1 put themselves in a vulnerable position to criticism, even attack? For that matter, why study Chinese in the first place?

Longhua Temple Shanghai

The last weekend we took advantage of good weather to visit a little known temple in Shanghai. This is the Longhua temple, south of Shanghai Stadium (about 5 minutes by taxi), roughly less than ten minutes from the house.

There are two and a half years we’ve been to the Jade Buddha Temple in the district of Jing’An guide recommended that we Cartoville (nice temple by the way). I also knew Jing year temple on Nanjing road (which I have not yet visited), and I know another step away from the antique market.
But I had never heard of Longhua Temple. It took Morgan comes out our dusty old backpacker that we pay attention to this place.

A little turn on the spot has become, 12 kuais taxi later we are on the site. But unfortunately for us, obliges World Expo, the site is open to visitors but still under renovation. So nice photos with scaffolding. Even though the temple is not bad, it was difficult to perceive the space to the sounds of jackhammers, and tons of piles of scree.

However, I recommend you visit the Longhua temple … as soon as the show starts, knowing that around, there is also the museum and the park of the martyrs (a bit too formal for my taste), if you’re interested.
