This was an amazing and digestible course! When I have taken in person Chinese classes before, I did not feel like I learned much. By taking the approach of having a more complex word, then breaking it down to it's parts gave the ability to pack a lot of information into such a small session! I have a deeper appreciation for the Chinese language!
This byte size learning is creative and fun. No pressure in following a curriculum but just to stay connected each day to learn something new and in depth
Fun learning!
