Looking at my Chinese learning progress, I made some massive improvements. I spent a lot of time learning during the last few weeks and it seems to pay of. After graduating my head became so much clearer. I picked up my Chinese book and I’m now learning every day for several hours.
A few days ago I met a nice woman from Harbin and like magic we could converse in Chinese for the whole afternoon. No need to speak English. To be fair, I must say that Harbin people seem to speak perfect textbook putonghua, noch accent at all, which was helpful to me. Still, my vocabulary was good enough to express pretty much everything I wanted to say and I also could understand everything she said to me. And if I didn’t understand one of her words, I was able to understand her explainations in Chinese.
I’m so happy now Just wanted to say…. I know, a lot of self praise, but I think I can do that once in a while
Next step: Learn even more Chinese. Maybe in 2 or 3 years from now I can use my Mandarin Chinese for work. That would be really awesome.
My current Chinese learning routine:
Read, read and read again. I read text from my regular learning textbook and I’m re-reading my Hanyu Feng books (I need to make a separate books about these, very helpful).
Some listening to Chinese while doing other things like going for a walk or cleaning my room.
And finally a few vocab drills, but not that many. Currently I aquire new words mostly through reading.
