Hey guys, My name is Daniel and I’m from Brazil.
Besides Portuguese, English and Spanish… I know how to survive (that should be a proficiency level) in French and Italian.
A few years ago I’ve decided to take a shot and learn Mandarin on my own. I’ve joined chinesepod back in 2007 (!!) and back then listening to John and Jenny was the best way to start a day. However, since I had no one to practice with I struggled a bit to leave Elementary (things were a bit harder 8 years ago).
Now living in São Paulo, I’ve decided to take another shot. I’ve hired someone to teach me Mandarin (she’s tawainese!) and I’m using chinesepod as a complement. Plus now I can live watch chinese TV (CCTV app), listening to chinese music (spotify) so I don’t lose content after class. Working great so far.
Needless to say now I have now a new best way to start a day: watching Fiona
