Learning Advices 汉语学习建议

animal If you are from America, before we go to Homedepot to shop for construction materials, we need to know these terms: windows, doors, walls, floors, furniture, right? See, floor, roof and wall are the major elements of a house, there won't be a house without them. Some words in a sentence play such roles. While doors and windows are not as essential. A house is still a house without windows, or even doors. adverbs, most adjectives are just like them, without them the meaning will change, but probably not that much. Furniture is even less important, just like these words: [the][is][and]...It's fine without them, people will still understand you if you skip those words. So we need to train our brain to focus on those important words in a sentence.
