— LEARN WORDS IN PRACTICAL SENTENCES —

— 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 connections 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.

思想塑造出现实

Sīxiǎng sùzào chū xiànshí

THOUGHTS SHAPE REALITY

____ ___ __ _

We have been raised in a materialistic culture.
We believe that mind is a result of our biological parts and processes.
We think of ourselves in terms of software and hardware, just as if we were machines.

Maybe there is a reason why we are so massively brainwashed with this materialistic ideology.

People who know what they can accomplish when they gradually learn how to make their dreams come true are much more self-confident and they usually don’t end up as someone else’s slaves.

Our thoughts co-shape the world around us. We are the co-creators of our lives.

Our dying world needs massive awakening of fine and decent people, who won’t forget that power has a straight connection to responsibility.

It is up to you!

山很高 /Shān hěn gāo/ THE MOUNTAIN IS HIGH

山很高 /Shān hěn gāo/ THE MOUNTAIN IS HIGH

海很深 /Hǎi hěn shēn/ THE SEA IS DEEP

____ ___ __ _

Describing that something is HIGH or DEEP is speaking of quality.

When we speak of quality, we connect “verbs of quality” with /hěn/.

Why?

Without it we would be saying that THE MOUNTAIN IS HIGHER and THE SEA IS DEEPER.

This rule applies to positive notification sentences.

When we want to do something TOGETHER with someone else, we need to RISE (from the table for instance) in ONE (the same) moment, so 一起 makes perfect sense.

When we say SORRY, we are actually saying that we won’t RISE AGAINST the other person.
