A nonsensical and funny video to drive away the Monday blues. The Chinese word to describe such nonsensical behaviour or talk is 无厘头wúlítóu, actually a Cantonese term made famous by the "Jim Carrey" of the Cantonese cinema, Stephen Chow 周星驰 Zhōu Xīngchí. ... See MoreSee Less

“…Because I’m happy, Clap along if you feel like that’s Mandarin you wanna do…” (paraphrased from  William Pharrell’s song “Happy”)

I am David BK Tan , a Mandarin teacher since 2008, teaching Mandarin mainly to foreigners.  Learning Mandarin is not easy, but it can be fun and interesting if you follow my HAPPY teaching methodology:

Cursive_L  – Let your hair down.  Have fun, learn to apply a bit of imagination to the Chinese characters. Take the example of Chinese character four 四 Sì.  Doesn’t it look like : a. A window showing the top part of a curtain on both sides? Incidentally, a window has four sides :)  b. A jail inmate visualising a breakout by dismantling the window grills!  A cell in a jail has only four walls.
Cursive_E_letter Explore the different facets of China and Chinese culture as they are interesting and fascinating! Examples are food, culture, historic places of interest and even Chinese characters themselves! Once you have the interest, you will be motivated to learn and master the language.

One way to stay interested is to read my blog 😉

So you follow LE (or 乐   meaning happy), the Mandarin learning journey will be fun and rewarding!
