Learning Mandarin Chinese with Gi2C: A Student's Perspective

No matter what anyone else may tell you, learning Mandarin Chinese in a classroom in your home country is very hard. The words sound totally different. The way Chinese characters look on the page is totally different. Few people outside of the classroom in my hometown speak Chinese, so I had no way to practice my skills. I knew I needed to learn the language, but I just wasn't getting it. I am so thankful that I found Gi2C (Getin2China), because I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have learned Chinese any other way. I took some time away from school and I went to China with Gi2C. I enrolled in a small class full of other students who also didn't speak Mandarin Chinese very well. We had an amazing teacher, and she spent a lot of time just coaching us and talking to us about the lessons. Things really started to...

The Pros and Cons of Interpreters: A Discussion With Getin2China

Companies that want to expand into China have two choices: They can hire interpreters, or they can hire people that can speak Chinese. According to Getin2China, the latter option is preferable. By investing in their employees and helping them to learn the language themselves, companies can reap incredible benefits. Using an interpreter can be a cumbersome process, according to the experts at Getin2China. A person speaks. The interpreter translates and speaks. The responder speaks. The interpreter translates and speaks. The interpreter may not stress the appropriate words or translate words perfectly. The tone of voice may not shine through. Delays in translation can make the conversation seem stilted and halting. The conversations don't have warmth and feeling. When two people are fluent in a language and they speak to one another, there is a flow to the conversation that's hard to replicate with an interpreter, according to the experts at Getin2China....

How Getin2China (Gi2C) Helped Me Learn Chinese

When I was in school, I kept hearing about how important China was, and how that economy was going to grow and grow, and perhaps even eclipse the economy of the United States. I figured that I had better learn the language, so I could stay competitive in the business world. I took a few Mandarin Chinese language classes in my school, but to be honest, I wasn't learning as quickly as I thought I should. I had no opportunity to practice outside of the classroom, and I just felt like the lessons didn't stick. One night, I was browsing the Internet, looking for tutors, books or anything that might give me a little bit of help. I started seeing references to www.Gi2C.org. Other students kept talking about the Mandarin Chinese language program ; how much they learned and how much fun they had while they were studying. I don't like...
