Today I am back with more of his interview. Besides answering my questions, kind Aaron has also offered a list of online Chinese learning materials for you guys, which have been used all the time during his own Chinese study, which are free and easy to access for any Chinese learners. So please check this out!

Qo7. Do you have any other useful learning methods besides what the teachers use when they learning you and your classmates?

Q08. When there are no Chinese people around, how do you create Chinese environment for yourself?

Q09. What do you think is the most difficult part in your language learning (especially Chinese learning)?

Q10. Aaron, sometimes I feel that my English level goes back. The same thing has also happened to my mother tongue Chinese as well. How does that happen –  you lose a language, even your mother tongue?

Q11. Multi-language ability can be a huge advantage when one looks for a job. Since you can speak so many languages (ps. I know you are learning Taiwan dialect now), what kind of job do you expect to do in the future?

Q12. Since you’ve visited my blog, can you give me some suggestions to improve it as both a native English speaker and an advanced-level Chinese learner?

Well, Aaron said, this is how he creates his Chinese learning environment…

I do agree with what dghoang said in the post that if one religiously  follow his passion, he will achieve success. This equally applies to Chinese learning. Stay passionate about this “so-called-difficult” language, don’t give up whenever you feel lost or depressed. Follow religiously you original goal of mastering Chinese. Stay tuned in Chinese learning environment. I don’t see one not going to master Chinese.

There will be light no matter how dark the sky is.

There will always be a beam of light no matter how dark the “sky” is.

Most of the time. For most people. The fact is that we are always afraid to let go of what we’ve achieved, even for a little while. However, will it hurt if we just put the achievements away and try a brand new startup?

I may be not able to tell you the answer right now. But I would love to hear from you guys, sharing your answers …
