Hey, guess what?

Hey guys! It's been a while, huh? Well, I finished my first semester at the new college. I got a B in Beginning Japanese II (Only because I didn't turn in a project >_<). But yeah, it's been fun. I have a new language goal now. I'm going to start learning Vietnamese (for personal....reasons...hehe ^^;; 비밀이다.)

But anyway, I'm going to start posting stuff here about my learning progress (hopefully, if I don't get lazy).

Would ANYONE like to join me? I think it'll be fun (especially if we do stuff together and not just tackle it alone, separately.)

I'll wait for someone to answer...hopefully one of you will be interested :)

See ya!

NOTE: I was not paid to do this.

Back when I was studying Korean, one of the tools I used was my iPod. Not to stick with Kpop but to listen to the free podcasts at I can’t recall how I found it. Was I in the iTunes Store looking for Korean audio books?

Then I stopped studying Korean. I then realized that Innovative Language (back then) did not have a Chinese podcast other than the one in the Survival Phrases series.

This week marked the end of my waiting because finally, I know that there’s a Chinese podcast around that can fit the way I learn. Again, it is

With that podcast, I can now understand why my Chinese teacher seem to have a wrong grammar (actually, she did not commit grammar errors). It also is a great tool to practice pronunciations since it’s one of the most difficult things to learn.
