How do you learn fast?
Every week, I receive emails about this topic. Usually, someone writes a letter and wants to know how they can speak Chinese fluently in just two or three months. Usually they are in a hurry because they will have an exam or interview soon.
Of course, it’s best not to wait until two months before the interview!
However, this is still an interesting question. Is it possible to learn Chinese very quickly? Is it possible to make great progress in just 2-3 months?
The answer is yes.
But of course, to make great improvements requires great intensity and effort.
So how do you do that? How do you improve quickly? What do I suggest for this goal?
The first and most important thing to achieve this goal is incredible passion. You must have great emotional power to learn quickly. Why? Because you have to learn Chinese for 8-14 hours every day… And every hour you have to be alert, interested and energetic.
To improve quickly, you must cultivate emotions. You must indulge in Chinese. You have to be passionate and incredibly enthusiastic. Remember, emotion is 80% of success, and the method is only 20%.
In order to create passion, learning Chinese needs very convincing reasons. It’s not enough just to get good grades in the exam. Just getting a new job is not enough. You need a lot of reasons to do so. Imagine all the incredible benefits you will get as a fluent Chinese user. Imagine how your life will change in five years. 10 years later, 20 years later.
If you are driven by money, imagine how the Chinese will make you extremely rich. Imagine your dream house, dream car, dream life.
If love inspires you, imagine how the Chinese will help you meet incredible people from other countries. Imagine dating a beautiful / handsome foreigner! Imagine incredible love and passion – because you can speak fluent Chinese.
You can also exaggerate the terrible things that will happen if you can’t speak Chinese fluently. Imagine all the jobs you will lose. Imagine everyone you’ll never meet. Imagine how bad your life will be because you can’t speak Chinese.
Make your reason bigger! Greater reason = greater passion. Greater passion = greater success.
Emotion is the key. Make your emotions stronger! Indulge in Chinese!
2. Substantial investment
The second key to super fast learning and amazing intensity is to focus on Chinese input. Don’t waste time learning grammar or vocabulary. Don’t waste time trying to talk.
You should spend all your time listening or reading. This is the fastest and most effective way to speak fluent Chinese.
Take your iPod and a book with you.
Specifically, you should mainly listen to small story classes, opinion classes and main audio articles. These are the most powerful courses that will help you learn as quickly as possible.
You should read simple Chinese novels – starting with children’s novels. Never waste time reading textbooks!
3. High strength
To be fluent in just 2-3 months, you must create great intensity. In other words, you must listen and read for 8-14 hours a day. You must often listen to Chinese. You must read often.
In fact, I suggest that the two activities be carried out alternately. Listen for an hour and then read a novel for an hour. Then listen for another hour. Then read the novel for another hour.
If you really focus on speaking well, listen more. But don’t worry, reading will also help your oral ability.
this is it. This is a simple way for me to speak Chinese quickly and fluently.
Of course, most people don’t need to improve so quickly. For most people, two hours of listening and reading every day is enough.
However, if you need or want to improve quickly, follow this plan.
