I have been teaching Chinese course for decades. I enjoy teaching Chinese very much.  Learning any language requires a commitment of time and effort, even more so when there’s a great difference between one’s native language and the new one. Any software, any machine, any books etc., are not able to help you. The most effective way to learn Chinese is to take lessons from a live teacher. Take the challenge and it is not as difficult as you think!
