    Today is my first Chinese Skype Class with 莱恩 and 艾美. Before the class, I was a little bit nervous and worried about it. But they surprised me. 莱恩 and 艾美,they are brother and sister. In today's Chinese Skype Class, both of them are very active and clever. I believe that I will spend a great time with these lovely students, I also hope that they can love and learn Chinese well in Chinese Skype Class.

    In today's Chinese Skype Lessons, we talked about colors. I shared a funny video with Ryan and Emi at the beginning of today's Chinese Skype Lessons. 莱恩 told me he likes orange and 艾美 likes blue. They found lots of things in different color at their home. Both of them can remember the Chinese of colors, and then we played games by using the PowerPoint in today's Chinese Skype Lessons. They likes those games, so maybe it's a good and suitable way for them to practice new things.

    This word with different tone have different meanings, if “干” with first tone(gān), the meaning is “ no water or less water” or “empty”, if “干” with fouth tone(gàn), it means“do” or the main part of something.Interesting word learned in Skype Chinese Lessons.

    in the picture you showd, most of “干” is with the first tone, meaning the food without water or less. but the last one“请勿干烧” means empty, the whole phrase is tell you do not burn the kettle without water in it.

    Top question for today's Chinese skype Lessons: Is Cantonese harder to learn than Mandarin Chinese?It’s not. There are far more resources for learning Mandarin, far more speakers of the language and it’s a lot easier in terms of the tones. In Mandarin’s 4 tones, absolute pitch barely matters. If the direction of the pitch change is right, people can understand your tones. Cantonese has 7 tones, though! A high level pitch is very different from a mid level pitch.

    Chinese Skype Lesson question:Is it enough to just learn pinyin to work in Mainland China?Very practical question for those who take Chinese Skype lessons.

    I’ve been teaching Chinese to foreigners for years, so I think I can offer some insight.

    In response to your question, you don’t learn Mandarin by osmosis. There’s a myth that simply by being surrounded by another language, you’ll absorb it and learn it. Not true. You’ll pick up some small things, but if you don’t put in a concerted effort to learn, that’s all you’ll pick up. There are a lot of foreigners who come to China and never bother to study the language. I discourage this. Please study Chinese if you visit!

    Tian (Sunday, 09 July 2017 04:45)

    Continused: Chinese Skype Lesson question:Is it enough to just learn pinyin to work in Mainland China? If you want to learn you have to practice, and you should have a qualified teacher. Mandarin is not a language conducive to self-study, particularly when it comes to speaking it. There’s no way you’ll be able to master the Chinese spoken tones without having a teacher to help you along. Finding a teacher has never been easier, and online classes allow you to study on your schedule, so Chinese Skype lessons are ideal for you to start.

    Tian (Sunday, 09 July 2017 04:50)

    Continused: Chinese Skype Lesson question:Is it enough to just learn pinyin to work in Mainland China?
    As for pinyin, no, it is not enough. A single pinyin syllable represents many Chinese characters. In simple sentences it is fine, but you’ll quickly find that it doesn’t take long for pinyin to become useless beyond that. Pinyin isn’t meant to be a replacement for Chinese characters, it’s meant to help students learn to speak Chinese. I wrote more about the purpose of pinyin over here.

    Hopefully that answers your question. Again, I strongly recommend finding a teacher to take Skype Chinese lessons at www.tianchinesehome.com !

    Chinese Skype lessons tip: Why Chinese people try to "hit the car" when they need to go outside? That's a great question for Chinese Skype lessons. Actually, "hit the car"means"打车" in Chinese according to the surface. However, both of them are not the same. As a matter of fact, if we want to translate the actual meaning of "打车", we need to say "call the taxi" in English. "打" doesn't always mean hit or hurt. Why we say "打车" instead of "搭车" is that its pronunciation was influenced by Cantonese long long time ago. With the rapid development as well as the need of communication among different parts of China, the expression of "打车"(call a taxi)spreaded to the mainland. Therefore, most of us don't say "搭车" but "打车".

    Welcome to Chinese Skype Lesson. The 9th day of the 9th lunar month is the traditional Chongyang Festival, or Double Ninth Festival. It usually falls in October in the Gregorian calendar. In an ancient and mysterious book Yi Jing, or The Book of Changes, number "6" was thought to be of Yin character, meaning feminine or negative, while number "9" was thought to be Yang, meaning masculine or positive. So the number nine in both month and day create the Double Ninth Festival, or Chongyang Festival. Chong in Chinese means "double." Also, as double ninth was pronounced the same as the word to signify "forever", both are "Jiu Jiu," the Chinese ancestors considered it an auspicious day worth celebration. That's why ancient Chinese began to celebrate this festival long time ago.
    The custom of ascending a height to avoid epidemics was passed down from long time ago. Therefore, the Double Ninth Festival is also called "Height Ascending Festival". The height people will reach is usually a mountain or a tower. Ancient literary figures have left many poems depicting the activity. Even today, people still swarm to famous or little known mountains on this day.
    This is today's Chinese Skype Lesson.

    Chinese Skype lessons question:What are the biggest challenges in learning Chinese?I'd like to share my online student 's idea from tianchinesehome Chinese Skype lessons: For me, it must be the four tones.I have been learning Chinese for several years and now I am not good at this tone part as well.
    Unlike languages like English, in Chinese how you pronounce a sound dictates what that sound means. This would be something similar to where you place the stress on a word in English changing its meaning. For this reason, Chinese is considered a tonal language. Standard Chinese recognizes four tones: high, rising, falling-rising and falling. It is a little like singing while speaking. For most, mastering the tones takes years of trial and error. Why? Well, there are just certain sounds that exist in Chinese that don’t exist in other languages.

    It is the first time I meet 爱迪 and 维迪 on Chinese Skype Lessons. They are Indian America in HongKong. For 维迪, I help her to finish her homework. I found that she is good at reading. I wish her grammar could get great improvement on Chinese Skype Lessons in next few months. For 爱迪, we learn something about colours, fruit and food. I really enjoy this class. And I wish she could enjoys the Chinese Skype Lessons too.

    Chinese Skype Lessons tip14: In today’s Chinese Skype Lessons tip,we will talk about Chinese character(汉字). As we all know, Chinese character is quite different from English or other characters. It is square and made of kinds of strokes, like dot(点), horizontal(横) and so on. When learning Chinese, Chinese character is always treated as a key point. Actually, it is also a difficult point in learning process.

Generally believed to have originated in ancient China, they can also be found in some areas of Tibet and Nepal that are close to Han Chinese populations.

    In today’s Chinese Skype Lesson, I will teach you the second idiom--“味同嚼蜡”(wèi tónɡ jiáo là). Simply, we can understand that it means insipid; tastes as if one is chewing wax (idiom); tasteless. This idiom is usually used to describe that when you are reading a book, you find that the book is dull just like you are chewing a tasteless wax.
    Detail: 味 means flavour. 同 means similar to. 嚼 means chewing. 蜡 means wax. But the whole meaning of “味同嚼蜡” is the essays are dull as ditch water.
    Sentence:枯燥的书味同嚼蜡。(A dull book lacks interest.)
    Let us expect the next Chinese Skype Lesson!

    In today's Chinese Skype Lesson, I taught a new student called 林恩诗. She is a Chinese American, so she could understand what I said in Chinese. However, she couldn't speak Chinese very well cause she usually speaks English in her life. I hope she could speak out in Chinese Skype Lesson and be confident. I like this girl. After all, she is such a outgoing and lovely girl. Hope she will enjoy Chinese Skype Lesson.
