@liface Just a question out of curiosity, when your Chinese friends are speaking, as in the video at the very end, can you understand what they are saying? I remember when I was speaking around this level I definitely would have never been able to understand people speaking that quickly, and with that kind of vocabulary, but it seems like you are able to!  


Yes, I understood about 90% of what she was saying. But keep in mind effective altruism is a trusted subject for me.

I don't understand why people are ragging on this guy.


Appreciate the concern, but I don't see anyone ragging on me! The feedback I've gotten here has been great, especially about the tones (an area where native speakers are lax to correct someone in real life). Keep it coming!

To be pedantic, Numbers 1 and 3 are the statements with which I strongly disagree.

I agree about point 1, but, if you are not in a hurry, surely statement 3 is not per se wrong. The guy, who currently posts most on the AJATT method concerning learning Japanese (Matt vs Japan), advocates such a period of silent input in order to make your ear capable of actually perceiving subtle nuances in pronunciation. He argues that your pronunciation will be better than if you had started speaking from the start (and had adopted bad habits).
