贪欲毒害心灵 /Tānyù dúhài xīnlíng/  GREED POISONS SOUL(S).

Chineseffect is primarily a language learning tool. But sometimes I feel the need to use its reach to communicate important messages.

Like this one: GREED POISONS SOUL

I was inspired to make this visual by a perfect industrial track VICTIMS OF A CLOWN by Ministry.

Current economic system is based on GREED. 

We are being taught that we all are under the inner control of this egoistic power. 

Why are we taught this? Because this ideology of greed as a core human power justifies actions of super-wealthy minority – and at the same time it destroys everything around us  – starting with relationships and communities, ending with our nature environment.

The only hope for mankind is in redefining our philosophy.

If you want to be able to actually speak, there is no way around it – you need to APPROACH the language ACTIVELY.

Forming sentences on your own is very different from passive reading and listening.

When you form your sentences, you obviously need a relevant feedback – either from your friend or a tutor.

You can also use our dynamic interactive sentences – for instance HERE, in the day 7 of our DAY BY DAY learning program.

Sentences are in English, so that you can try to translate them. 

After you translated the sentence you CLICK on it to hear AUDIO and see the MANDARIN VERSION. 

After you tried it on your own, the correct version of the sentence is much more likely to stay in your memory – especially if you give it some extra time to memorise it and review within 24 hours.

Have fun with our more and more fluent Madarin!

Hi guys, I just found that there is this decent audio function in Tumblr, so I will give you a sample of podcasts that are an essential part of a DAY BY DAY learning program.

This is DAY 9 – where I show you two basic functions of 要 /yào/.

DAY BY DAY is carefully structured and is full of animations and dynamic flashcards and sentences to make your learning more immersive and fun.

It is still in beta and you won’t get awards yet – but even without it it is already – I believe – very useful.

Have a nice day!

When you learn new words, learn them in CONNECTIONS – you will remember much more! 

Mandarin is ideal for that.

Take the word 发 /fā/ TO SEND for instance…

Sending something out is an activity – that’s why 发 /fā/ is a very pro-active word that we find in other positive (or neutral) words, such as:

发现 /fāxiàn/ TO FIND OUT

发生 /fāshēng/ TO HAPPEN

发财 /fācái/ TO GET RICH

发展 /fāzhǎn/ GROWTH

… these are just few examples.

LEARN WORDS IN PRACTICAL SENTENCES

DON’T LEARN ISOLATED WORDS

This advice is based on my experience of both – a language student and a language teacher.

To learn isolated words is usually a waste of your time.

Why?

Our brain has to go through tons of informations and when it decides during our sleep what informations to keep and what informations to throw away, it distinguishes if the information is or isn’t connected to something. The more connected to something else, the more relevant, the more likely to be remembered.

When you learn a word in a sentence, you create a connection to other words and to some situation (and as a side effect you get used to grammatical structures.) 

From my experience – every time I want to help my students with recalling particular word, I remind them of the sentence where they encountered it. It always helps.

That’s why there are about 2000 useful sentences with TOP QUALITY AUDIO on chineseffect.com.

Hope this advice will help you or your students get further!

As you can see on the visual 上 /shàng/ is an universal concept of UP.

We can use it as a verb, as a place specification, as part of other nouns…

The opposite is 下 /xià/ DOWN.
