Thread: Want to learn Chinese

  1. #1

    Default Want to learn Chinese

    Anyone can recommend a good place to learn Chinese spoken and read?
    Preferably at night as I have to work in the morning. Maybe some kind of executive class program?

    I give up, many courses rush thru the lesson, and insist teaching me how to write WTF I cannot even speak!
    Best you take 1 on 1 lesson, so can tailor to your need if you really want to learn.

    have a chinese girl friend (not girl-friend, but lady friend); you will learn in leaps and bounds.

    tuition centre is an old fashion way to pick up a language. most are over priced and boring.
