1.) I’ve just downloaded your geography of China MP$. Many thanks. At the same time I’m studying Chinese geography just as part of my general knowledge, in preparation for graduate school in China, BeiDai or UofShenzhen, as soon as I can pass a few HSK levels…
One piece of useful material that some of your friends and students might want to know about is the very god ANKI package on Chinese geography. (n fact quite a few of the Anki Mandarin packages are good; some are, uh, not so good… The three or four with “audio” in their titles are all good.)
2.) Second, about yourself: I’ve seen smoe of your YouTube’s, and your accent in Putonghua is really very very good. How old were you when you started learning Chinese? I.e. is there any hope for the rest of us? And what advice do you have?
In particular, do you have now, or did you have while you were learning, an internal dialogue or self-image that you adopted as you spoke Chinese?
Best wishes — and thanks for your very helpful and intelligent posts.
Thanks for the comment, David! I will check out those audio packages you recommended for sure.
My Chinese really isn’t very good at all! I came here in 2008 with absolutely 0 Chinese. I took some small group classes, traveled by myself, and just did my best to speak the language more and more. I think when you find yourself here, in China, your speaking ability can increase quickly if you try. As far as my reading and writing goes, well they both are still pretty poor. But I can communicate with people fairly easily. Of course, doing this job helps me a lot, as I need to study more and more to write the articles and make the videos.
Good luck with your HSK studies!
I’ll be visiting in Oct where autumn is believed to be where the park is at its most colourful with leaves of all hues and shades. I’ve been searching for some good hostels near the jiuzhaigou park entrance that’s within walking distance. Read a few horror stories about the supposed YHA hostels on tripadvisor but oh boy, it does worry me. Seems like the 5 stars hotels are the only way out, but considering I’ll be spending abt 2-3 nights there, this option will burn my pocket deep! Where did u stay when u were there? Some advice on this would be highly appreciated.
