speak chinese like a native

Can I make it ?!

Posted by blairsies December 30, 2010 in the Group General Discussion .

Hello ! I am so excited about ChinesePod. I joined today and am so enthused to master mandarin. I'm 17 years old, and a Junior in High School. 
My goal is to master mandarin via ChinesePod, Livemocha, Rosetta Stone, and some other free sources I can find. My worry is that I do have a time limit. I wish to pass a Subject Test on Mandarin Chinese to display when I apply for college next fall. Thus, I'll be taking the subject test probably next fall. I'll have the rest of the school year and summer and then a few months to prepare and master.

Could anyone tell me if this is realistic? I am determined - however I know subject tests are rough and elaborate. 

I have no previous experience or knowledge of Chinese what so ever, but a clean slate can be a good thing every now and again. 


Thank you so much!

Excuse me, if I'm not doing this posting thing right - I literally just signed up - I'm still testing the waters.
