Chinese Characters – should we gain PASSIVE or ACTIVE skill?

We all sure love Chinese characters.
But Is it really necessary to learn to write them in the digital age? 

Wouldn’t it be better to save the energy, time and brain capacity to something a little bit more useful? 

This podcast is all about my perspective that I gained as a teacher of Chinese with over 14 years of teaching experience.

Last Thursday I forgot to post a podcast – sorry for that.

Today I won’t make the same mistake 🙂

You know the word 名字 /míngzi/ A NAME – knowing that it will be very easy for you to create (or at least remember) the word FAMOUS.

How is that possible? You will find out in this podcast.

Part of DAY 20

Have fun!
