So you’re learning Chinese? That’s awesome!
According to Dr Stephen Krashen, languages are acquired through repeated Comprehensible Input.
To acquire a language, you need listening and reading. This “input” gives you an understanding for how vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation are in the language.
The more comprehensible input you get, the more you “level up” in the language.
However, it has to be comprehensible. This is why you could watch 100 hours of a native speaker TV show – but if what they’re saying isn’t COMPREHENSIBLE, then you wouldn’t be acquiring the language.
