Practice Mandarin Chinese with Movies
Posted 06/11/2014 03:19PM


    After a long summer holiday without practice, a lot of students tend to forget their Chinese. How can students maintain their Chinese skills during the summer? One way is to watch Chinese movies.

    Several reasons make it a good choice to practice Mandarin Chinese by watching movies. First, movies are fun and entertaining. Second, movies tend to use natural conversational Chinese the most. Third, movies are a great way to learn Chinese culture. Fourth and final, you get to pick the movie, meaning that you can select whatever matches your interests and Chinese level.

    Some movies are better than others for practicing Chinese. Try to find Chinese dramas that are not technical and have people in everyday situations speaking relatively slowly. Below is a list of some Chinese movies you can watch during the summer.

《刮痧》-Guasha treatment
《长江七号》- CJ 7
《小孩不笨》1, 2 - I  Not Stupid
《妈妈再爱我一次》- Mother Love Me Once Again
《星星的孩子》- The Children of Stars
《一个都不能少》Not One Less
