Just finished up my first year of International Baccalaureate Mandarin. Learned a lot! In this video I did a short description of a photo while trying to bring in various grammar rules I’ve learned.
I feel I can read quicker than I can speak (as long as it’s mostly characters I’ve learned). Writing is tough unless I’ve got a word bank.
Didn’t end the year as far along as I had hoped but I definitely did learn a lot. Hoping to have the time to do Year 2 next year.
