I have been studying mandarin for about 6 days (5 hours a day) in anticipation of a move to shanghai this coming november. I have been using Rosetta Stone for the past week at this pace and almost wanted to give up. However when I stumbled upon chinesepod, the first audio i listened to with Jenny and Ken completely re-energized my ambition. Even though the banter can be cheesy and childishly jovial, its more than appreciated and I have found such seemingly innate dialogue to have a positive impact on my studies!
Cheers and I hope to hear what you have in store for me in future levels of mandarin proficiency.
