So aim for an 84 day chain, then reassess.

 

It’s a good idea, but honestly I think the goals which work for me are the real world hard-and-fast ones, like exams and travel plans. Day-to-day motivation has never been a problem.

 

It’s probably too early to say, but is the 12 week year working for you?

 

Right now my only goal is to do the parts I enjoy and make friends I want to stay in touch with. In past visits I’ve been panicked about speaking all Chinese all the time, but this year I’m just going with the flow. If I make good friends with people who speak mostly English, eh, it’s fine, I’ll end up coming across their friends who most likely won’t. Paradoxically my best times there have been playing games like Cards Against Humanity with great people.

Slightly off topic but is this the 伊戈尔斯.  Is this the correct translation for the Eagles?

So far I'm liking it. I'm not going to pretend I've done everything I've set out to, but I've probably done more than I would have otherwise.

Absolutely, and where I have something like that coming up I'll work around it rather than some arbitrary date. But if an exam date is 9 months in the future, I need some kind of milestone, artificial or not, between that and now.

Note: (我有四个孩子哈哈-太多太多-三个女儿一个儿子,他们也学习中文)

 

这只是关于我2019的中文学习目标的快更 新!

Just a Quick update on my 2019 chinese learning goals !

 

我不太满意我最近 的中文进展,但情况就是这样。

I'm not feeling great about my recent progress in Chinese but things are happening.

 

我刚从中 国回来,我待在那里10天,而且我在那里有很多机会练习日常对话。

Just back from 10 days in China and had lots of opportunities to practice speaking everyday.

 

我本来应该参加3月23号举办在都柏林的HSK4考试,但是因为那一趟中国旅行,我错过了报名费的付款截止日期,我只晚了几天,他们说我必须等到11月。

I was meant to sit HSK 4 exam in Dublin on 23rd of March but because of the China trip I missed the payment date by a couple of days and they said I would have to wait until November.

 

我跟我家人四月会在上海,而且我刚订了4月11号到4月15号要带家人去台北的机票,所以我们会有很 多练习中文的机会。

I'm going to be in Shanghai with the family for the month of April and just booked tickets to bring family to Taipei from 11 April - 15 April so we will get lots of practice. 

 

我考虑过参加4月举办在上海的HSK4考试,但是那个需要用中国的银联卡付款,这真的很伤脑筋!而且我 会错过截止日。 而且两天前,我的微信钱包被锁起来了!在中国,没有微信钱包会是一场恶梦!微信钱包现在要求我必须有一个中国银行户头,(我以后会认真考虑办一个,但是我不确定开一个中国银行 户头会有多难!)

I looked at sitting HSK 4 in Shanghai in April but needed a union pay card so it's a total pain to pay and will end up missing cut off date. I also got my wechat money blocked 2 days ago so it's going to be a nightmare trying to get around China without wechat money - it now requires me to have a chinese bank account (will seriously need to consider this in future but not sure how difficult it will be to open).

 

反正我觉得我的动力有点下滑,但是我的日常对话能力变好了!我现在可以开心坐下来跟客户和家人边吃晚餐边聊天,并且听得懂大部分的内容, 而且我发现现在有一种以前所没有的化学反应,那就是当中国人看到外国人学中文 到一个不错的水平的时候(以我的例子来说,我觉得是中级),他们会比较友善很亲切。

Anyway feel like motivation slipping a bit, but I am getting better at everyday conversation - happily sit and talk to clients or family over dinner and be able to understand most things and I've noticed there is a chemistry that wasn't there before - when Chinese people see foreigners learning Chinese and getting to a fairly reasonable level (In my case I (think) I could say intermediate) - they are even more friendly and nice.

 

HSK5 的课程很 好也很有趣,我还是持续上线上课程。

The HSK 5 class is good fun and I'm keeping the online classes going.

 

即使在我最懒的情况下,我还是会看中文电视节目或是youtube节目,所以至少我还是让自己充斥在被动学 习的环境里!

Even at my laziest I still watch chinese tv shows or youtube channels so at least I'm getting good passive learning exposure! 

 

您们加油!
