There Could Be Better Ways for Starting to Learn Foreign Languages
As a Chinese who grew up in central China, to be sincere, I have been suffering a lot from learning Indo-European languages such as English and German. As a matter of fact, Chinese (Mandarin) is very much an analytic language which lacks inflectional morphology almost entirely, and most words consist of either one- or two-syllable morphemes, especially two due to the very numerous compound words. (source: Wikipedia) And in Chinese, words don't usually change in forms to express different time points or periods (past, now and future), different numbers (singular and plural), different cases (German - Nominative, Akkusativ, Dativ und Genitiv), i.e., words generally don't change.
