Hello Chinese learner out there, I’m 29 years old Taiwanese. I speak, read and write Chinese my whole life, particularly Traditional Chinese.
Most of the time at work I use English. If you only started learning Chinese, English will be our alternative language to communicate.
I have been on and off on language exchange sites to share my knowledge of Chinese to foreigners who are interested in either Asia, Chinese culture or political situation between Taiwan and China. If you find yourself one of them, feel free to contact me.
I did my Bachelor's at National Taiwan Normal University studying Educational Psychology and counseling. Feel free to ask my background studies as well if you are curious.
I would love to see more people speaking my mother tongue. Let’s get you on the road.
I would say yes. You put effort in, you get something back. Most important thing for Chinese learners is to get familiar with Chinese language. Second, to listen to the feedback from native Chinese speakers. Do not let the pride take you down. Chinese people are tolerant, yet could be strict on your pronunciation and sentences you put out. When it does not sound native enough, we correct you. I will correct you though there is always a room to discuss how fluent you wish to be.
I would say give it two month to see the result first.
