In my Karate class, there are people from Japan and people from Vietnam and all of them are friendly and willing to help me out with my Japanese and my Vietnamese.
Well, Tuesday I found out that one of the people I thought was Vietnamese is actually Chinese! From China! Woo Hoo! I asked her what she spoke and she said she can speak both Mandarin and Cantonese. Score!
So I took a quick look-see at Chinese; Mandarin to be exact and found out that Mandarin has four tones and that it’s totally doable! After reviewing my Vietnamese course, I developed a healthy fear of tonal languages you see, but I think learning Chinese could be a lot of fun!
So I think it’s time to review my language list again!
Thank you for looking!
