Discovering the Richness of Chinese Language

Hello, dear readers! Today, I’m thrilled to share a new adventure I’ve embarked on: learning Chinese.

By learning Chinese, I hope to navigate China with ease, connect more deeply with the locals, and truly experience the essence of Chinese culture.

Immersion through Chinese Broadcasts

Apart from DuoLingo, I’ve been tuning into Chinese broadcasts on Bigo. This immersion technique is helping me to listen, understand, and get accustomed to the natural flow of the language. The more I listen, the more familiar the sounds and intonations of Chinese become to me.
