My name is John or 张毅. I've been studying at Beijing Language and Culture University for two months. I'm an absolute beginner. I'm not a big fan of my classes here. In my opinion, our teachers cannot speak English well enough to explain things to us. My girlfriend (American-white-girl) speaks Chinese fluently (lived in BJ and has a Chinese degree) can explain concepts/grammar/etc to me in five minutes, where it would take my teacher 30. Anyhow, I have lots I could go on about. If anyone is interested I'd be happy to offer suggestions about how to get the most out studying Chinese at a Chinese University.
I'm looking forward to at least a month with ChinesePod. I'll likely be posting about my experience on Twitter (@johnerik) and on my blog (blog.think27.com).
Looking forward to being apart of this community.
