Loads of free time to study lately




Time to get this back up to date. After spending a couple months in SE Asia and studying just a little everyday, it's amazing how just being back in country (days before the border closure) raised my motivation. With only a little work to do, and from home, I've spent loads of time on Chinese study. It's pretty cool to have hours and hours to study whatever i want I am using lots of different resources, but all at a similar level: 3 lessons a week with my teacher online doing CME, Chinesepod, Chinese Breeze, Mandarin Corner, Growing Up with Chinese, etc. No flashcards or vocab lists. I think i've raised my vocab and grammar flexibility by a good chunk in the last few months. I've also been weening myself off pinyin.

Great post. I've loved it this year. COVID has given me the time to restore my passion for my Chinese, something I hadn't really done since 1999. We've been lucky over here i nNZ with COVIOD and are now free of the various, albeit probably temporarily. Although it's great to be back at work it does mean that I now have far less time for study. I';m taking the bold step of enrolling ope a 300 level paper at Massey University in Chinese translation so that will force me to keep it going. I've loved popping into this site every day since I re-found it. Some great, helpful posters on here.
