Have you ever wanted to learn how to speak Chinese? Chances are if you're reading this article then there's a good chance that you do, but maybe you're looking to see what is the best way for you to learn?
We all have different preferences when it comes to learning. Some of us are visual learners, so we learn best when we can see or read the information they want to learn. Others are auditory learners so they remember things better when they are told them and then there are kinesthetic learners . These people will learn best by just simply doing it. Of course people are not solely visual learners and people are not solely audio learners and so on. We are hybrids and sometimes we might learn something better through audio when we normally learn best visually.
Rocket Chinese understands this and so has tailored a learning package that uses all three of the learning styles to help you to learn how to speak Chinese like a native. It has two separate courses with a brilliantly competitive price which are aimed towards the beginner and the intermediate speaker. The great thing about it is that you can pay for the beginner first to dip your toes in the water and if you finish the course and enjoy it you can then upgrade to the intermediate course. Both the courses come with a full money back guarantee for sixty days should you be unhappy with the software. However, given that a survey of the software said that over 95% of users found it great value for money we don't think you'll be disappointed.
There are three primary aspects to the course. Interactive Audio Lessons, which are lessons you can download on to your Ipod and listen to anyway. Language and Culture lessons, which are in essence Grammar lessons although so much more than that, giving you an insight to Chinese culture and what to expect should you visit China. Finally we have the writing lessons, which will teach you how to write Chinese and comes complete with videos so you can see the symbols being written.
There is more to the software than just that though, there's a motivation section, which can help you find out the style of learner you are and give you motivation for when you're lacking inspiration to continue with the lessons. There are games for you to play to help you learn whilst you play. There's even a function called Rocket Record, which allows you to record your own pronunciation of Chinese and compare it to a native speaker to ensure that your pronunciation is spot on. There's more as well included the bonus survival lessons, which contain essential words and phrases you'll need in different scenarios.
To appreciate your different learning styles as well, each of the three primary aspects of the course contain material that will appeal best for each of the different preferred learning styles. For the Interactive Audio Lessons, for example, there is the audio lesson itself, which appeals primarily to an Auditory learner, but in that we have transcripts of the dialogues in the lessons for the visual learner and then there are tests and rocket record functionality for the kinesthetic learner, and that's just one of the aspects of the course.
We could cover more but we don't want to turn this article in to a total overload of information about the software. More information is available at www.ihowtospeakchinese.com where you can find out more about each of the aspects of the course and all the added extras, and also a HUGE list of all the lessons that are covered in the software. Head over, you won't be disappointed.
