This blog is about my journey how I taught myself Mandarin over the last few years. My journey began 7 years ago when I met my beautiful girlfriend from Taiwan. In order to be able to comunicate better with her family and to be able to move at some point to Taiwan I decided to learn Mandarin. This side will included links to useful resources I have found over the last years, daily learning exercises and text from myself and my girlfriend. I hope you join me on the wonderful and crazy journey to learn Mandarin.
