I have had grown up with three languages of environment, including Taiwanese ( mom’s language), Cantonese ( Fathers language), and Mandarin ( school). So I understood how to learn another language with a skill. And I have listened English music since 13 years old. Mandarin could be a fun subject with books, videos, and games that have any kind of method to learn. I am a sociable person with diversity of topics. People who could talk with me and feel free of relaxing voice. Learning another language should make a purpose, for example, people who want to understand another couture.
Speaking and Reading are easily way to learn Mandarin. People who could join the second hand market in Chinese groups that would be a fast way to learn.
It’s depend on the people who are sociable or with close friends.😃
