Yeah, so I'm an asian who can't speak mandarin. Or when I do, people laugh lol. Parents never sent me to chinese school, bla bla, I spoke chinese better when I was a kid but I forgot 90% of it.
Anyways, I want to be close to fluent by the end of college. I'm a high school senior now. I don't know how realistic learning a language is in college while pursuing majors in science/business, but I want to at least try and become semi-competent in chinese lol. And I want a head start so I don't have to start in Chinese 1 in college.
Any tips? Programs? Advice? Tools? Classes? I know lots of you on CC are asian and can speak mandarin. Bang zhi wo xue zhon wen (maybe that can testify to how bad my chinese isl lol
). I guess I'm also willing to pay for a summer course to learn.
Oh and I'd sign up for chinese school, but I don't feel like being in a class with 7 yr olds lol
