How to Practice Oral Chinese

With enough listening practice, it is easier to learn to speak Chinese. That is to say, children who often listen to Chinese will speak Chinese more easily. But some children still don't like to speak Chinese, so we have to analyze the reasons why they don't like to speak: because they can't make sentences or some words can't speak, they feel it is difficult to speak Chinese and don't want to make mistakes.

When a person speaks, his brain subconsciously thinks about two parts, one is the meaning, the other is the pronunciation. When learning a new language, students need to think clearly, find the right words, and then use their mouths to make their voices heard. For younger children, under the age of 10, "grammar stage" children can pay more attention to the pronunciation part. This is because it is easier for children to learn pronunciation than adults. Some pronunciation may be very difficult for children to learn when they grow up. Another reason is that children are naturally fond of imitation. They don't care much about what they mean. As long as they have fun and rhyme, they like to talk and sing over and over again, and it's easy to recite.

So the natural process is to listen to the poems first, and the children can't help but follow them, then recite them and read them independently. Poems can be recited in segments, such as one or two sentences a day. Recite a poem a week. Time speed can be controlled according to the age and ability of their children. Mainly don't let children feel too much pressure. Poetry can be said seven times and recited. For example, the simple Tang poem "Chanting Goose" can be read seven times without taking 5 minutes. It's better to read slowly, parents say a word, children say a word, not too fast. It is important to ensure that children pronounce accurately and clearly, and pay attention to the application of four tones accurately. If you can have 10 to 20 minutes of reading practice every day, the child's pronunciation will be very standard over a long period. Children's confidence in Chinese will also be greatly increased. Because reciting poems does not require the child to worry about "choosing the right words", the child can concentrate on pronunciation. Of course, I believe that children and parents will also talk about the meaning of poetry in their communication, so they will also learn the meaning of Chinese characters in poetry and the allusions and history of poetry.
