Doing my best to come up with most efficient and effective strategies across all facets of Chinese. Listening will be the most important by far skill to develop, as reading is more a function of vocab, and exposure (and there are not THAT many grammar points). So for me, reading is relatively easy to systematize and excel.
Right now, I plan on doing a lot of Chinese Pod. And kind of muscle through it.
However, do you do anything specific to 1) deal with homonyms? (do you make an Anki card deck with example sentences with homonyms… for example. 2) do you target non noun words (all other parts of speech are very finite compared to nouns) and try to perfect the usage of these for example by making SPEAKING ANKI cards (english on one side, and you have to say the whole sentence in Chinese) with prepositions or other functional words/phrases (for example having a few sentences with a bu dan er qie construction). Getting these “glue” words/phrases perfected/become second nature so that the other nouns “pop” easier.
Or do you do anything specifically creative? What are a few different strategies you focus on? Be it speaking, reviewing a script and then listening to an audio, having success with a specific app/resource…etc. Since Chinese is an objectively hard language to listen to probably mostly due to homonyms, it would be interesting to hear a language learners adjustments to Chinese…that might not be necessary for learning another language in the realm of listening…
