One of the best methods for learning something and retaining it long-term is to put it to music. As the saying goes, “What is learned in song is remembered long.” While this is true for many areas of study, it is particularly true in language learning. Something that can be quite intimidating, when given musical notes and rhythm suddenly seems much more approachable. You might even say that music makes language friendlier. Something utterly foreign when put to a familiar tune gains familiarity. You already know the music which becomes a link to the new vocabulary. View All >

Chinese Idioms: Horses

By Keats student Anna


Chengyu (four part Chinese idioms) are a fascinating part of the Mandarin Language. Their rich history and colorful tales make them particularly interesting to study. Many chengyu use everyday objects in very unusual ways. The words might be commonplace but when combined into a chengyu they take on an entirely new meaning, one that you must learn the story behind the chengyu to fully understand. Here are a few chengyu that all feature a horse, but develop very different idioms. Calling a Stag a Horse View All >
