Dear Mr. Editor of Learning Chinese Magazine,
I am trying to learn Chinese in my home country and I am having a really hard time. I feel like no matter how hard I work, I just don't make any improvement when it comes to speaking Chinese. But I also don't want to quit because I really like Chinese and Chinese culture. I would like to tell you about how I study Chinese, and then maybe you can help me with my problem.
First, I bought a textbook for learning Chinese. The textbook I bought covers commonly used words and grammar. I also read newspaper articles so that I can get more practice. I'll read an article once, and circle all the words I don't know. Then I'll look up all the words and read the article again.
I use the CD that came with textbook to improve my listening. I listen to the CD for about an hour a day, and I also repeat everything on the CD, but it seems like my spoken Chinese just isn't improving. The problem is that I have no one to speak to in Chinese, and speaking to a CD just isn't the same as speaking to a real person. Do you have any suggestions? How can I improve my spoken Chinese?
