There could well be a game changer afoot for all those learning Chinese. We understand many teachers transition to China with the intention of learning Chinese and perhaps taking HSK tests. Everyone is different in their ability and motivation to learn. We have teachers who’ve almost perfected their use of Putonghua within a few years to others who never progress beyond survival language skills. It’s really a personal decision and it doesn’t necessarily determine your quality of life or happiness when living in China. However attaining a basic language level can, undoubtedly, make your day to day life a little easier.
So it’s with great fanfare the Chinese government have recently announced a new standardised Global Chinese Learning Platform. It’s moderated by iFLYTEK co but under the guidance of The Chinese Ministry of Education, so it’s really seen as the gold-standard of learning content. Some of you may be using apps like Pleco and Memorise or subscribing to Chinesepod.com. The great thing about this new government initiative is that it’s absolutely free and full of the most up-to-date resources using the latest AI technology.
What further sets the GCLP apart from other learning sites is that it offers lessons in Chinese poetry, history and culture. It goes into great detail about the context and evolution of linguistics. There are portals available accessing preschool, school, and college resources with guidance in official translation standards. The entire site can be navigated using English or Chinese. Learners can also explore traditional or simplified
We really recommend our teachers take a look at this new website. We feel it could well inspire some of you to new heights and get others of you on the road to learning. The site is still under some development and not expected to be fully functioning until early next year. All it takes is a simple registration to start taking advantage of the abundant resources here. Happy learning all!!
