Practice makes perfect

The proverb 'practice makes perfect' means if we do a certain task over and over again, we will find that the task has become easy for us to do.

In learning a language the same principle applies. We have to practise using the language daily so that it becomes second nature to us. Only then can we master it and use it fluently because we are used to using it through our writing or speech.

Mandarin words are considered the most difficut to master as they involve many strokes. However, if we write the same word fifty times, we will remember how to write it the next time we want to use it.
