Question:

How to start learning Mandarin from zero?

Answer:

My approach starts with recognising the Mandarin pronounciation system and the five tones as the basics and then follow up with simple daily life conversations, from easy topics and knowledge to more complex ones. Being able to communicate is the key to success as a beginner.

Question:

What are the major differences between Cantonese and Mandarin?

Inactive

Answer:

First difference is the written form since we write in Traditional Chinese for Cantonese and Simplified Chinese is used with Mandarin (in mainland China). Second differences lies in the two different pronounciation systems. In additon, Speaking in Cantonese is a bit different from the written Traditional Chinese since the written one is usually more formal. There are characters like 啲、吓、喺 which are only used in the Cantonese speaking but not writing.

Question:

What the most significant difference between Facebook and Weibo?

Answer:

There is only one version of Facebook but two for Weibo while one of it is called 'International version'. Content published by users from International version might not been seen by the mainland Chinese accounts, which in other words meaning that the reach of content is lower, and that would result in a less effective marketing.
