Hacking Chinese elsewhere
Sometimes I publish articles about learning Chinese elsewhere or other people write things about me. On this page I gather links to interesting articles, pots and interviews related to Hacking Chinese but that is hosted somewhere else. If you think something is missing in the list below, please contact me! The list below is sorted with the newest links first.
You can also contact me if you are interested in writing a guest article for Hacking Chinese. In essence, I’m interested in articles in the same spirit as the others already published here, but about topics I can’t cover confidently myself, perhaps because of lack of knowledge, interested, experience or something else. I know this is vague, so contact me if you have a good idea and we can talk about it.

Review: Benny Lewis – The Language Hacking Guide
July, 2011 – Interesting Times Magazine (issue 7, free download)
This is my review of The Language Hacking Guide by Benny Lewis. I’m quite positive to his book in general and think that he has a lot to teach about how to learn languages, mostly related to attitude. He has since tried to learn Mandarin, see my thoughts about that project here: Can you become fluent in Chinese in three months?
