speak chinese like a native

How do you learn Chinese?

Posted by annietheeslteacher July 25, 2007 in the Group General Discussion .

Other than using Chinesepod, what have you done to learn Mandarin?  I'm a newbie, getting close to an elementary level and I just got back from a month in Taiwan.  I want to keep learning and I'd love to take a class, for the structure and accountability, but the only local one I know of is not real structured and mostly for kids.  I bought myself a textbook/workbook/CD while in Taiwan (Far East Everyday Chinese), which I'm planning on working through, but I'm worried about staying motivated.  What have you found helpful?
