Learning Chinese from English
I am a native Chinese speaker and live in an English environment since 1995. If somebody need any help in learning Chinese, simplified characters, I may be of some help here. Why? I decided to learn French from English in later September 2018, and find this site. I benefit from this site as I come here daily since then. I want to give back to this community if I could. Thanks.
If you want to help most of the Chinese learner on here, you could go trough the Chinese from English tree and report solutions that are missing and unnatural sentences, so they can get fixed.
Good point. I may not have enough time to do it, as I am learning French myself and also full time work along with family duties to fulfill.
Nobody forces you to do it, I understand that you have your own life as well, but this is probably the most effective way to help apart from being a contributor what takes even more time.

Hi there! I'm Chinese, and is there any way you can asist me with my English? You see, I can get the pronunciations right but my grammar is absolutely terrible! Is there any way I can talk to you through the internet?
Sure. Give me a shout when you need help, but native English speaker may be better.
Great motivation you showed as well as finding the best way to help out, Fushan! If you want to help people out with English, you can suggest "English-from-Chinese" track to them, so they can do some practice.
I am learning "English-from-Chinese" to see through the contents included for the course. After speeding through and making more than 50% of all lesson sets golden, I realize that:
- The grammar taught from "English-for-Chinese" is different from "Chinese-for-English".
- More vocabularies and sentences with some complexity
- Lots of exceptions, so that English sentences can have more than one translations.
Yet, some improvements to make are:
- More alternatives needed
- To improve the rigor of the course since some lessons do not clearly or correctly teach English
I am trying to help out for those learning Chinese, and I believe English native speaker could do better for your course.
`I want to learn Chinese, English is not my native langue so that it is difficult for me to learn Chinese from English . I will try to best to learn Chinese, English and other language.
I do not understand other languages, so I can't explain the Chinese in other languages. But if you can understand English, I may be able to help you.
I'm learning Chinese, but sometimes the characters confuse me. How can I stop this from happening?
only practice can resolve it. I am learning French, facing the same dilemma as you are learning Chinese.
thank you. also on duelingo, aren't some of the pronunciations of the pinyin wrong?
some chinese words are pronounced differently on their own, versus when with certain words or in different context
Hello Im Charlie I am a chinese person who could understand the basics on chinese but not write it. to help me i give each character a name i dont know if this was obvious or not but it really helps me <3
