Just Back from China - Thanks Fluenz!!
Just returned from my 4th trip to China. I knew the basic greetings prior to starting Fluenz in February. I'd made it to Lesson 30 and must say, I was impressed with my ability to understand the simple things, figure out some context clues, and hold my own with the waiter until my translator arrived. But of course, humbled by the many discussions where I had no clue what was being said!!
The first time I asked "where is the bathroom" and the person understood me, I was amazed!! Sounds simple to those of you who have been at this a while but for me, this last trip was amazing and I must say, my colleagues were impressed! Of course, lots to learn moving forward but a big "shout out" to the Fluenz program for providing common words, "real life" situations, and your focus on pronunciation. Please let me know suggestions / fun strategies for increasing my vocabulary (in addition to flashcards / memory exercises).
