Learn Mandarin, Socially

If you’re looking for a place to find and share links about learning Chinese and Chinese culture then Social Mandarin is a great resource. Along the lines of Digg or the Hao Hao Report, Social Mandarin allows users to submit and rank articles and blog posts about learning Mandarin.

Social Mandarin

Founded in March 2010 by Niel de la Rouviere of Confused Laowai fame, Social Mandarin also features a forum for asking questions and discussing your experiences learning Chinese, and after registering on the site you also get your own blog – in case you feel like putting pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) and writing an article about your experiences.

If you’re learning Mandarin Chinese then Social Mandarin should, without a doubt, be in your bookmarks/RSS reader and is a great resource to learners of any level.

You can find Social Mandarin on Twitter and Facebook, and if you have your own blog then they also provide a widget for showing off the latest posts.

Look out in the future for an interview with the founder of Social Mandarin when we’ll be asking about the motivation behind the site!

If you know of any other great resources for learning Mandarin Chinese then let us know in the comments below, we are always looking for useful resources. And remember that you can contribute to Chinese Hacks if you have a good tip or idea about how to learn Chinese more effectively.

    Thanks for all the help, it’s great!
    To those of us who do not have easy access to Chinese teachers, that leaves us with the most problematic part: speaking correctly.
    We do not pronounce the tones correctly and lessons by Skype do not work. I tried that.
    So, thank you for what you offer.
