App of the Week
Skritter — This app is for studying Chinese (Japanese is also available) and there are over 9,000 lists with flashcards available.
I watched an interview on YouTube a few days ago with Stephen Schwarzman where he talks about the current Chinese leadership. 40 years ago when the current leadership were in their late teens or in college, China had a GDP per capita of $300. This experience of growing up in extreme poverty has fundamentally shaped their world views.
I’m happy to announce that the Chinese for Love Series has been re-released here after lots of great feedback on the initial release 🥰
I’m working on adding a lot more fun Chinese language programs to this page.
This includes the short Chinese for Kids and the Chinese Grammar course.
The audiobook will be released in a few months on Audible and currently available for subscribers here.
