Learning Mandarin

I am considering learning mandarin.

  • listen/speak: pimsleur
  • coursera
  • chatgpt (for practice/examples including how to write text from pimsleur) (unreliable - needs fact-checking)
  • dictionaries for fact-checking
  • anki for remembering symbols

Later watch videos with pinyin|ideogram subtitles, and listen audio to level up.



  • March 14 2023: Setting up pinyin input methods, and played a bit with chatgpt ca. 1-2 hours. Start loggging progress
  • January - March 13 2023: listening to Pimsleur audio course, first 6 lessons, probably 4-5 hour in total.
