When learning a language, any language, some basic related vocabulary is necessary. Learners need vocabulary that can help them approach the process of learning the new language. I, for example, found myself using the words 词典 (cí diǎn dictionary), 汉字 (hàn zì character), and 意思 (yì si meaning), on a daily basis as early as the first days of my Chinese studies.

Read the next paragraph to practice essential Chinese vocabulary for learning Chinese.

Use this glossary:

方法 fāng fǎ = method

方式 fāng shì = way

资源 zī yuán = resource

好处 hǎo chù = benefit

课本 kè běn = textbook

生词 shēng cí = new word

提高 tí gāo = to improve, to increase, to raise

词汇 cí huì = vocabulary

目的 mù dì = aim, purpose

扩充 kuò chōng = to expand

部首 bù shǒu = radical of Chinese character

笔画 bǐ huà = strokes of Chinese character

正文 zhèng wén = main text, main body of a book

背 bèi = to recite

 

每个人都不一样,学习也有不同的方法。学好中文可以用不同的方式学习。你可以看电视,听收音机。你可以用手机和电脑。现在,网上学习资源好多。但是,对我来说,最简单的就好。适合自己的学习方法就是阅读中文书。古人说“开卷有益”。意思是读书总有好处。我觉得是对的。我打开任何汉语课本来看,就会学生词。提高词汇量是我阅读的目的之一。我越读越扩充我的词汇量。遇到不会的字或者不认识的词就查字典。查字典有点儿慢了,要确定字的部首,数笔画,从正文中找到它。刨根地找答案了,找到后我就会记住它的意思。如果你没有时间的话,想快快地把很多词汇背起来,就可以用我们 Mandarin Chinese Word of the Day. 我们一起努力学习吧!

People are different, and so are the methods of learning. There are different ways to learn Chinese: you can watch TV, you can listen to the radio; you can use a mobile phone and a computer. Nowadays, there are many online learning resources. For me, however, the simplest is enough. The learning method that suits me is reading Chinese books. An ancient Chinese saying says to open a book is beneficial. It means reading has a profit. I think it’s true. Any Chinese textbook I open and read, I learn new words. Improving vocabulary is one of the purposes of my reading. The more I read, the more I expand my vocabulary. When I encounter a character I haven’t learn yet, or a word I am not familiar with, I check the dictionary. Looking up the dictionary is a bit slow, you need to determine the radical of the character, count the strokes, and find it in the main text. After a thorough digging for the word, I will remember its meaning. If you don’t have time, and you want to quickly memorize a lot of words, you can use our Mandarin Chinese Word of the Day. Let’s study hard together!

 

好好学习,天天向上!
