Worldwide, hundreds of students take the fortress of the Chinese language, studying the hieroglyphics and tortured with tones. However, the progress of their highly controversial, as experts in this field. It is difficult to estimate how many people on Earth teach Chinese, but this number is certainly not less than 30 million. And that number is increasing as more and more universities and even schools offer Chinese language courses. But most students are not progressing at a fairly good level. High interest in Chinese and many hours of work are not always justified.
Experts compare the number of learners with the number of those who are really good at it expresses itself, and reveal not comforting statistics. For example, among German linguists and interpreters are only three people who are able to perform high-quality simultaneous translation from Chinese to German and vice versa. And in China itself, where many foreigners work, only a small some of them may be more or less comfortable to live in a Chinese language environment. The majority relies on knowledge of Chinese English. One of the factors, experts say – this is the wrong approach to the development of Chinese language.
In studying Chinese Europeans rely on their own, the European system, which justifies itself in the case of European languages, but does not apply to the Chinese. You can not teach this Asian language as you were taught to German or French. Chinese in this regard is unique and requires a lot more time studying than any European language. However, the study of Chinese has also a definite plus. According to statistics, Chinese students have shown good results, while studying at foreign universities. Scientists believe that this is due to increased intelligence, which develops Chinese children in the process of learning their mother tongue. There data that the study of Chinese increases IQ by 15-20%. The largest difference from the rest of the Chinese language is symbolic, not a sound alphabet. When a child learns to read English, he associates written letter with the sound and the sound of words automatically decoded by the brain and gives it meaning. When a Chinese child learns to read, it must separately associate character with its meaning and separately – with the sound. This doubles the efforts of the brain in the process of reading and, accordingly, coaching abilities. By studying the Chinese language, remember that you will have to expend more effort than any other language. However, the benefit you get huge. Knowledge of Chinese can be a huge competitive advantage in a world where China goes to first place in their economic and business indicators.
