This is my blog on my mission to self-study Mandarin, eventually (hopefully) to fluency! As an American-born Chinese, all of the formal courses I’ve tried don’t fit me very well. I decided self-study was the way to go.
[Note: This site is now archival!]
As of 2014, my speaking would probably qualify as intermediate, but I’m very close to illiterate. I know most of the basic vocabulary that in beginner courses, but there are big gaps that prevent me from being able to speak freely about anything (except maybe food!).
I decided to start this blog as a way to keep my study on track, and maybe help out anyone in a similar situation.
Current plan: post everything I’ve found handy – great review for me and maybe useful for others. Blog everything I find interesting that has to do with learning Chinese. Archive helpful posts as a resource.
You can see that below the title there are five main pages. “About me” will give you some info about yours truly, “Lesson Plan: What’s up next” is what I have planned for the next few weeks, and “Posts” will take you to the latest posts.
