mandarynski - Today, 04:53 AM in Non-Mandarin ChineseHello everyone, I'm really fascinated by this language spoken by more than 70% of Taiwan's population so this log will track my progress in learning to speak and read it from zero to fluency.

Depending on the interest and people's budgets we could try a restaurant or see the new Ming exhibition at the British museum or just meet in a coffee shop, bubble tea cafe or w...
