How long does it take to learn mandarin?

There are about 7000 characters in modern Mandarin. But to be fluent one needs to know about 1500-2000 characters. It will take just 1-2 years to learn, if you learn about 30 new characters each week. (30*52=1,560) With each spelling test, your child will learn to read/write/hear minimum 30 characters. With conscious practice in the first 2 years, they will very soon be fluent with Chinese language.

To motivate your child, remember there are many non native speaker doing their best to learn this useful language.

My 10 year old son is on his 4th international language. He speaks English, French, Spanish already. He’s learning mandarin currently. We must deliberately arm our kids and wards with the tools (knowledge) that will give them that edge in this highly competitive environment.

So keep calm and press on!
