Standard=worthless?

Posted by dwfndley June 21, 2011 in the Group General Discussion.

-pass a class, maybe. and watch TV shows. I am so tired of being utterly unable to understand the indigenous people of Beijing China. So many different accents. So many ways to have absolutely no idea what they're talking about.

I know I'm studying 'standard' chinese here, but it's useless if I can only say things, but can't understand what the other person is saying.

how do I ever learn to cope with the REAL language? ...maybe if I go to a village and pay somebody 20 kuai to hang out and talk to me all day? is that really what I'm going to have to do?
