Chinese looks difficult to learn but it actually is not. Having learned the language for a few years, what I found about this language is that it gets easier when you learn more. (What I am talking about here is Mandarin, just to clarify…)
Below are the tips to facilitate your learning.
1) Learn PingYin, with the correct pronounciation – there are a few tricky pronounciation but once you nail them, you can pronounce all the Chinese words.
2) Learn Hanzi characters – it is hard to get started but it helps your learning in the long run so, be sure to invest some time learning them.
3) Surprisingly, grammar is similar to English grammar. However, just as learning other languages, do not think about “why” and just remember it.
Just do not be hesitated, and just get started.
You’ll be amazed how easy it gets once you learn the basics.
Also, billions of people are speaking this language so, it is worth your time and effort.
