Clarify simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese. Every Chinese learner should know that Chinese includes simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese, and Chinese has 4 tones and mysterious strokes. Maybe you can speak Mandarin, but you can’t read Chinese. Mandarin is a form of spoken Chinese, while simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese are written forms.

 

Have a right dictionary. There are many choices for the dictionary, you can buy a Chinese dictionary, or use online dictionary, or install a free Chinese dictionary app which you can search words via pinyin, English and Chinese characters.

 

Have a good habit to read Chinese news, magazines or books.

 

Review all the words regularly you have learned (there are some rules to enhance the memory of words. For me, 127 rule is useful. I will view the words the 2nd day, and review them again the 7th day. You can try it.) It’s a bit difficult to write down every new word, especially the word has different meanings. Personally, I use a free Chinese learning app to create my own vocabulary list and add new words to my list. Then I can review all words in my list. The most convenient thing is that I can add notes to the words. Sometimes I would add a sentence with the word for better understanding or add another meaning of word.

 

add notes to Chinese word

Do training with writing. Writing the words can improve my memory for the word, and fortunately, the free Chinese learning app I use also have training section for me to practice writing (draw the strokes).

DucroZi Chinese Training Section

Speak with Chinese people or Chinese speakers. The most important step to improve vocabulary is to use it, because you will remember it more if you use it often. Never be shy to speak Chinese and never be afraid to make mistakes, instead you should seize every opportunity to practice it.

      I found two study guide for hsk level one and two.
      Chinese Characters and Vocabulary For Beginners: A Study Guide For The HSK Exam; Level 1 Puzzles (Volume 1)
      Chinese Characters and Vocabulary For Beginners: A Study Guide For The HSK Exam; Level 2 Puzzles (Volume 2)
        The character searches in these books are organized thematically (greeting, restaurant, work, school etc) and will help people learn by presenting the material for different learning styles. you can search the words with Sherlock Holmes.. I like the idea of having Holmes helping you find the words.. Marta

      I started learning German and Dutch two years ago, and if you're thinking I've mastered both languages, it is with sadness as I inform you that my German and Dutch have become much worse. Needless to say, it seems I am having problems retaining my progress from two years ago and remembering everything I've learned. I can't even recite numbers 1 through 10 in German anymore without peeking at my notebook! So, how about you-- how do you retain everything you've learned in the past from your language of choice?
