Something I should have done a long time ago is to label everything in our flat in Chinese. Alicia was out quite a bit over the weekend and so I took the opportunity to run around the flat labelling everything in Chinese. She came back last night and just laughed: “You forgot 镜子 [jìngzi], mirror.”
Over on the ChinesePod discussion forum, Ken Carroll asks how ChinesePod fits into your daily routine. I’ve recently altered the way I study Chinese and am enjoying a renewed sense of excitement at how things are progressing so I thought I’d share Ken’s question, and my response here.
