Analytical Method in Teaching Chinese

To learn the Chinese language fast one should follow analytical principles.

Despite of the trend of a book the main idea is still the same – to teach the students to speak Chinese!

The analysis starts from the text itself. It is broken down into syntagmas with word-for-word translation.

Then syntagmas are divided into words. The words are splitted into characters and, finally, the characters are decomposed into the Chinese radicals and components.

Thus, a student can follow the analytical path in the Chinese language and understand all the constituents of the studying text.

Let us see how analytical principles are implemented in the short example of the Chinese commercial email:
