I am learning Mandarin Chinese and I would like you to join me on this journey. My goal is to become conversationally fluent in 6 months. With limited resources and barely any free time, I will be testing and trying free online resource and rating the effectiveness. Exploring Chinese culture and entertainment. As an independent learner I will be looking for the best methods to learn vocabulary and grammar in context. Instead of teaching students like a traditional course, we are a learning together and helping ourselves and preparing for real-life conversations.
