I’ve decided to start learning Chinese in time for Taipei next summer. At least to basic greeting & where’s-the-bathroom level… (chances of getting much beyond that are slim ;). I’ve heard, of course, that learning Chinese is one of the more difficult things one can do with one’s time. Legend has it that my mom dropped out of grad school due to it; if only she had had the internet & sites like this and this.
I’ve been posting, but mostly friends-only — task lists and goal lists for the future, trying to sort out work. Back to our regularly scheduled programming soon.
