So I started to finally review and practice Chinese and I am feeling that it has been a little tougher than I thought. I started with my “Play and Learn Chinese” book that I found at Half Price Books. It comes with a CD and it’s just perfect. So the first chapter is on the morning routine, so here’s me saying good morning in Chinese:
If you want to hear me practice a few more sentences, go to my instagram account @shortandsweet_spanish. 🙂
So another way that I make myself speak Chinese is to ‘MarcoPolo’ (nifty video app) my brother and say my new phrases so he can give me feedback. He and his wife and kiddos have lived in China for the past twelve years and they are all pretty much fluent in mandarin. So in this neat app you get to easily record short videos and have a conversation that way. If the other person happens to be on MarcoPolo, you see him or her live. I realize most communication apps have video, etc, but the user-friendliness and practicality of this one is very good.
