The Highs and Lows of Learning Chinese: Part 3

Part 3 of our Skype chat explores the highs and lows of learning Chinese , and some advice for new learners on the best approaches to learning the language. Some people say it’s the hardest language in the world.

Others disagree and say that it is actually quite simple, with basic grammar and logical structure. In this episode we discuss some of the difficulties when learning the language, but also, all of the great moments when you get the chance to use it in daily life.
