What mistakes do most Chinese learners make and how to avoid them?

Mistake 1

Use sh all the time, e.g. T sh piolin (She is beautiful)


Just remember when you say I am fine you say w hn ho. You never say w sh hn ho.

Mistake 2

Put the place in the wrong place.


In English you say “Sb. do sth. at sp.” However, in Chinese it is “Sb. at sp. do sth.” You have to go to the place first then take action. So place comes first. Does it make sense?

Mistake 3

Say xinshen Wn for Mr Wang


Just remember how you can call me: Julia Laoshi. Job titles and addressing always come after.

Mistakes are also opportunities to learn. Take this opportunity and take this course!
