In this week’s anniversary episode, I answer three listener questions:

  • Should you drop everything you’re doing to study Chinese abroad for one year?
  • What to do if you can’t find the right approach and spend all your time trying to find it?
  • How should you approach native reading content as an intermediate learner?
