Learn Chinese

How to learn Chinese by yourself? Start with an easy and free online course!

We have adopted an objective and efficient approach to learn how to speak a language easily and quickly: we suggest you to start by memorizing words, phrases and practical expressions that you can use in everyday life and that will be useful when traveling.
Getting used to pronounce words out loud, numbers for exemple, is an easy exercise that you can practice often and at anytime throughout the day.
It will help you to get used to the sounds of your chosen language and thus make it more familiar.
And once your holidays have begun, in Shanghai, in Nanjing or elsewhere in China, you will be surprised how familiar and easy to understand it will seem.
Furthermore, using a pocket dictionary is always useful, particularly during a trip. It enables you to find the translation of new words and enrich your vocabulary.

Why speak Chinese while traveling?

Whether you are a potential investor, an enthusiast of Chinese culture or just curious about languages, speaking Mandarin could be the missing asset in your goals! 

A giant global economic power

The People's Republic of China is one of the largest and most populous countries in the world. As one of the world's leading economies and the world's largest exporter, China exports mainly textiles, toys, electronics and steel.
Inventor and the first country to use paper money, China has been establishing international economic relations for centuries, and its reopening towards the West and strong attractions for investors have allowed many international companies to settle there to generate jobs and stimulate the economy even further.

Millennia of history and culture

China is often recognized as the oldest known civilization. Its influence is strongly felt in East Asia - Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism, for example, have spread throughout this region of the world; Chinese vocabulary and characters have also spread throughout the region. But also many major inventions which have benefited humanity are of Chinese origin, such as the compass, paper and watchmaking, to name just a few. 
A great way to discover or rediscover all these wonders is to take trip which will allow you to get to know the ultramodern cities of Shanghai and Beijing, the historical sites of Nanjing and Lhasa and, of course, the wonders of the Great Wall. 

Make a success of your stay in China

Whether you are going to spend a few days with friends for a leisure trip or if you are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful to you than to be able to slip a few words in the language of your interlocutors, who will appreciate your effort and will be certainly more willing to help.

How to succeed in having good pronunciation within a week to a month?

A tonal language, there is not one, but several Chinese languages ​(the most well-known being Mandarin and Cantonese) which together have more than 1.3 billion speakers. These languages ​​are official in China, Taiwan and Singapore. Among these languages, Mandarin, spoken in North and North-east China, is the most spoken language in the world, with around 850 million speakers. 
One of the commonalities of these languages ​​is the placement of the tone. In fact, it is in tonal languages ​​where the pronunciation of syllables is subjected to a tone or a melody. There are four possible tonemes: the high and flat tone, the rising tone, the high-falling tone and the descending tone. A fifth distinction is made to mark the neutral tone. The pronunciation of Chinese is very attached to the groups of syllables, of which there are about 400. By learning them, you will be able to pronounce almost all the sounds of the language.
