The answer is YES! I made it. You can do it, and anyone can too! I have finally finished my book, a book that I have spent months on writing. Finally, it’s in shape and it’s been put on my personal Wechat official account: 学外语那点事 for about a week as of now. How my Chinese followers respond to its release is beyond what I expected. By now I have sent away dozens of my book, and people start contacting me and asking me to help them improve their English.
Many Chinese people are hungry to improve their English skills while the world is seen with more and more people who walk into Mandarin learning classes. This is something I have always observed, but it was not until I started receiving emails from my wechat followers that I had this epiphany. That is, we all desire to communicate with one another! Communication is the gateway for all beautiful and nice things to happen. If so, why not bestow a mission of making communication global upon all of these, all that we do?
Too often, what we learn from language classes is limited to language itself. Truth is, language is a tool to communicate, a bridge for us to talk to each other. Therefore, it’s something that lays in your day-to-day lives. It is not just words you speak. It is about your culture, your thinking and understanding, and people. Because of that, the mastery of English to Chinese individuals and that of Mandarin to Westerners as well as all other non-Chinese speakers can only truly be done in conversations.
My wechat followers have expressed strong wishes to practicing their English with someone, someone an English native, or someone who speaks the language at a proficient level. So, I have established a mailbox for everyone to connect. Feel free to click here to let me know what your ideal language partner is or scan the QR-code you see below on your phone to learn more of it!
If none of Mandarin or English is your language, you may also connect to the ones who choose to learn your mother tongue or perhaps you find the people from different countries who are learning the same target language of yours.
Language is a unique skill to have. It brings people together and closer. It creates something we all have in common and helps us truly understand one another. To learn a language means to speak it from day one! My Wechat official account is a place to do just that!
