Stable network: 3G, 4G, Wifi or wired network

Communicate better with information technology.
Complete knowledge, complete and countless different knowledge.
Not familiar with online learning method
Learning online is synonymous with good sense
Do not know how to choose the right course
Familiarize yourself with smartphones, computers to learn most effectively.
Practice awareness, set goals for yourself. Think about why you need to learn Chinese to get the best motivation.
Study online courses carefully. Not every course is good. So, listen to your friends’ advice and reviews online.
5. The most effective way to learn Chinese?
a) Be self-conscious
Online learning is simple but it is also a double-edged sword. On the one hand you will not be managed, no reminders and no pressure score. But on the other hand, you will probably stumble and depend on no one under house arrest.
So, before studying online, remind yourself and have the best commitment to learning.
b) Determine objectives
Study online or study at the center, too. You need to have goals for yourself. When studying at the center, determining the ability to understand the test will be taken as a test. And online learning is not like that, you have to understand what you are learning. From there, assess yourself to see how far you have learned.
c) Always prepare the lesson
Don’t think learning Chinese Online is no preparation. In each course, there will be the title of each lesson. Please take a moment to learn the problems of the new article. Thus, when entering the school will be much more receptive.
d) Ask questions that you do not understand
Online learning as well as traditional learning. You should boldly ask questions you do not understand. Other than the tradition, you can ask teachers directly. When studying online, please comment right below the lesson for teachers to explain to you.
e) Practice often
This is the most important part of a successful course. You need to review the old lessons and do the exercises, before moving on to the new lessons. And do not forget to practice again often, until truly proficient.
Hopefully, with the 5 online learning methods above, you will gain the most knowledge of the course.
6. Misunderstandings “disastrous” when learning Online
a) Cheap Online courses are not quality
Many people will equate the quality of the course for money. The reality is not so, there are very cheap courses but also very good quality. For example, I have created 15 basic Chinese lessons completely free. This course will help you have the most basic concepts when learning Chinese.
b) Learning many programs at once is good
It is true that online Chinese courses are increasing. Choosing the right course is also quite difficult. You may want to take more courses to gain more. But, learning many programs at the same time can lead to “information disorder”.
Knowledge gained too much in a short time will be even harder to absorb. This leads to boredom and can leave the course halfway through. So follow a course until the end.
c) Listen only, do not do the homework
If you think reading, watching videos is enough, you’re wrong. Learning must go together with onions, so the knowledge gained will apply when, where. So, try to practice a lot.
d) Learning is always possible
It is true that learning online is not limited in time and space. But for the most effective study, make a specific schedule for yourself. For example, during the daytime you go to work, so spend the evening studying. In the free time of the day, learn new words or do your homework.
In addition, there are also people who think that: they can learn at any time online, if they study today, then continue to study a few days. It is completely wrong, you must learn regularly to not forget the old knowledge.
And now the most important part,
