We are learning Mandarin?


Yep, we are trying.
A few weeks ago while we were at a stained glass store we met the owner Alan. Alan is from China and speaks 6 or 7 different languages. We told Alan we were adopting from China and he offered us this book to study Mandarin AND offered to teach us Mandarin. He said he would close down his store early on a Saturday and he would speak different phrases into a recorder for us to study with. WOW, is he nice or what? We just want to have some of the common words down before we travel... please, thank you and the like. This is such a difficult language, our brains are so programmed in English!
