Do you know how I can get in contact with the authors? When I try to send a message on lofter, I'm just redirected to the frontpage.
I'm heavily constrained by what I can test/grade. Writing code to grade the correctness of my Mandarin pronunciation is hard.
Listening exercises are easier to grade and they are definitely on my TODO list.
I'm not sure how to use his comment. I do feel that I have sensible goals and I'm pretty good at keeping track of my progress. Achieving my goals requires a significant amount of legwork and I posted here to ask if there were any ways of making it a bit easier.
If there's anything I can do to make your experience better, let me know.
Hm, I like this. Perhaps an automated email, sent once per week, saying something like:
My goal is to pass the Chinese proficiency exam by 2017. I have X days left. In the last week I've spent X hours practicing.
I want to learn Chinese because:
- I want to work in Singapore/China/Taiwan after I finish University.
- I want to prove that I can learn a foreign language.
- I want to speak with my SO in her native language.
I fear that I would start ignoring the emails after a few weeks. It feels similar to Tony Robbins' advice to keep telling yourself why you do what you do everyday. Sounds good on paper but I can't for the life of me implement it in my daily routine.
I'll give the emails a try and see what happens. Thanks.
Hitting the 'escape' key is the same as clicking on 'Show Hint'. It isn't explained very well on the site; I will do better.
I agree very much with your sentiment. Once you start practicing, your hands should not leave the keyboard.
Are you only interested in solid food or would you want to buy Soylent/Joylent as well? Soylent/Joylent and Meal Squares are so simple that you wouldn't need new restaurants. They could easily be sold at, say, Starbucks.
On a related note, drinking Joylent has improved my feeling of well-being more than anything else I've done. The low price is just an added bonus.
