Becoming Fluent in Chinese: February Goal Check-In


46 episodes of Chinese TV and 47 episodes of American TV since beginning of the challenge (mid January). I’ve been enjoining a Chinese TV drama called Happy Michelin Kitchen or 幸福三颗星. I would say that I did well this month because there is only one episode difference.


I published two blog posts in Chinese this month.


I’m reading 失恋33天 at the moment and it’s harder than the first book I read (单身公主). I’m currently on page 35 so I didn’t get to page 100 which was my goal. But besides reading that novel I also read 30 pages in Chinese from my textbooks (对外汉语教学导论 and 现代汉语). Those textbooks are originally meant for Chinese students who want to teach Chinese to foreigners.


I still haven’t managed to make Skritter a daily habit. This month I only used Skritter for four days, total of 0.8 hours.


I uploaded a short video clip of my self speaking Chinese. I also interpreted a lot when my friend was visiting Guangzhou for business. I learned some new words in the process like 不锈钢 or stainless steel.

Goals for March:

  • Find a new TV series to watch (I’m almost ready with 幸福三颗星)
  • Do well with my Chinese courses at the university (I need good grades because I want to apply for scholarship)
  • Study all the new words from 综合 (comprehensive Chinese) class with Skritter
  • Get to page 100 on my current book
