  8. Native English speaker looking to help a native mandarin speaker and looking for help with mandarin. 希望以英语为母语的人学习和向以普通话为母语的人学习。

  14. My uncle learned Asamis language in about 2 months. Not just fluent in speaking but he started to post in Twitter in Asamis. Now that is talent. For us it's six months. If you couldn't learn in 6 months then it's just that you are not trying hard enough

  15. me gustó ver este video porque actualmente ando estudiando italiano….conozco algo de ingles y me gustaría despues aprender un cuarto idioma…….buen video

  16. The info this guy is putting out is great, but after 15 minutes of his frenetic delivery I feel like the world's coming to an end!..I fear he may give himself (and me) a heart attack.

  17. I know exactly why Zoe learned Portuguese, because I am Brazilian living in Holland and facing the same problem. As a brazilian I know my people and when We have foreigners around, We will gesticulate, talk very slow, repeat a thousand times until we make sure that you understood and that you can repeat too. The dutch people won’t do that and if you are learning their language and talk slow they will not take that because they don’t have time for this kind of attention. Brazilians are relaxed, dutch are stressed. This is why Zoe succeeded in Brazil and failed in the Netherlands. Mr. Lonsdale learned something in Chinese in one single day because apparently the Chinese behave as Brazilians, dedicating time and patience and time to you.
