Chinese problems

My Chinese is pretty lousy. Like really really lousy. How exactly do you improve in a language you are not proficient at?

Re: Chinese problems

Speak more.
Read more.
Write more.

Language is not something you can learn overtime, but need to use years and decades or even your whole lifespan to be very very fluent and very very proficient

Re: Chinese problems

Write a lot (maybe 1 essay a day?) with the help of dictionary. You also need to discover new sentence structures or effective phrases through reading, but I think this should be done only after you regard yourself as proficient enough to read.

Re: Chinese problems

For languages, learn from the basics if you are not proficient at all. Else read, speak and write alot more than you are now.

Re: Chinese problems

I gave up on Mandarin long time ago. But I guess to improve it, just hang out with people who speaks the language more often.
