…remembering certain words in Mandarin, but easily learning other words? I’ve been studying Mandarin for nearly two years and some words just don’t “stick” in my brain. Most words/characters I can learn without problems, but the few that don’t seem to stick really bug me!
Anyone else experience this when learning Mandarin?
Also, one thing I have noticed is that learning Mandarin does seem to get easier after you get about 500-600 characters memorized. I find myself learning more and more words easier, since many of their components are words I already know.
