Few years ago, I decided I want to take some Japanese classes, so I decided to sign up for an intro Japanese class at the local community college. I thought that would be a great idea and was hopeful to jump start my language learning. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The problem with learning from CC instructor, was that she was teaching the language to Americans and she was teaching the language using romaji only. With works sound like Chinese, it really was very difficult. So when I am ready to try again, I want to find an instructor that can speak Chinese (from Taiwan), English, and Japanese. The reason for the three language requirement is because I think this will be the best to help me find the short cut to pick up the new language. So the question is how do I do that?
Enters Amazing Talker !!!
So there are couple of online language learning sites, but I decided to go with Amazing Talker because of my research based on youtube. Also because of the number of Taiwanese Chinese speakers that are instructors on Amazing Talker. So with that said, I signed up for a trial and gave it a shot. So yesterday was my first lesson.
The first lesson was only 25 minutes instead of 50, but it get you an introduction to the instructor. As I stated in my previous post, I’ve been self studying the Japanese phonics for a while and I thought with my flash cards and APPs I was doing well. However, when I was working with the instructor, I realized that I don’t know anything. I guess it is the pressure of speaking in front of another person, I would panic and stress trying to identify the characters and sounds.
All in all the first lesson ended pretty quickly, mostly cover the basic sounds and also did some basic writing. The instructor provide homework to work on my writing skill and understanding skills. As for the effectivensess of Amazing Talker? I don’t know yet. I will keep you guys updated.
