As some of you might know, I’m not Chinese. I’m 100% American born and raised. I started studying Mandarin around 2009, and am pretty much completely self-taught. I see questions on the forums every so often about learning Chinese. I’ve also had some personal messages sent my way. I decided to make a little FAQ based on my (ongoing) experience of learning the language. Please feel free to check out the article in the new “resources” section up above, or click here, and if you have further questions feel free to leave them in the comments!
