A Few Chinese Things

As you may know, I’m currently taking a Chinese course and I’ll be visiting China soon. So naturally I’ve been interested in Chinese language and culture. I’ve come across a few resources recently and I thought I’d share them here. They’re all in English (at least the explanations), so even if you don’t know a word of Chinese they may be interesting for you.
The first resource is actually my teacher Elizabeth. She’s sent a lot of videos, and some of them may be interesting for you. This is one about Shanghai:
Next, there’s a site called LingoBite. I found out about this site through a contact on Airbnb, actually. The site has very short and quick lessons to help you learn Mandarin Chinese. It also has a blog, which recently had a list of the 8 Best YouTube channels for learning Chinese.
Finally, the language blogs at Transparent are usually pretty great and they post frequent updates, and the Chinese one is no exception. A few days ago they had one that described the parts, history, and evolution of Chinese characters. It’s pretty cool, so check it out!
I hope something here is interesting for you. Thanks for reading, and have a good one!

    The language arts are listening, speaking, reading and writing. Generally, these language arts skills are learned in the order listed. However, when teaching students in the lower grades, especially kindergarten, lessons should provide a great deal of overlap. Teachers should be sure to connect the content of lessons to the child’s prior experience. This technique motivates the learner and ensures comprehension of the material. Thanks for sharing.
