Thanks for the input everyone! Maybe I'll go in for the professional bundle when I get my next paycheck. :)

This thread has inspired me to start up again after a hiatus - today has been very painful but I'm sure with time it'll all come back.

An update from that previous post in January.

 

Since then I’ve had quite a bit of time to get back into Mandarin and I am happy to say that despite a painful start (as always!) I have got back into it very nicely.

 

My listening is definitely better than it was before and my speaking is probably about the same but maybe more rusty due to less opportunities (living in U.K. vs living in China I’ve gone from speaking 8 hours + a day to a few hours a week). I would also say my reading is better than it was while I was in China but it’s hard to say precisely as I am reading different things.

 

Dont be discouraged all!
