Learn Putonghua (Mandarin) with Becky

Want to learn Putonghua? Try Becky. This is Becky:

Becky is one of the teachers from   She's a nut but in a good way.  Echinese online features short, easy to understand Chinese lessons from fresh, funny teachers.  I'm not sure how I got on their list but they've been sending me videos for a while now.

Their format is straight forward.  They introduce a topic and go over the tones and key word with you.  I really appreciate the fact that they show the pinyin and the traditional Chinese characters together on the video.

The production value is a little cheesy.  I sometimes feel like I'm watching a kid's how to video but, in traditional Chinese style, the teachers are bright and friendly and they do a great job of taking you step by step through the lesson.

Looking for easy to learn Putonghua (Mandarin) lessons?  Look no further than EChinese online!

Practice the written characters.If you would like to learn to write and read, you must regularly practice and review writing. Chinese writing poses specific challenges as the system is not an alphabet where the symbols represent sounds that make up words as with the Latin alphabet. Every character stands for a word and you must take great care when writing each character to complete them with the correct stroke order. Thanks.
