Learning Chinese always seemed about as possible as learning to fly!
After listening to a few videos on YouTube about how to introduce yourself I had all but given up on it in my head.
I decided to try an online free trial lesson and the first one I happened to choose was eChineseLearning, since their YouTube videos were so friendly and interesting. My teacher had obviously met many potential students like myself, who had no confidence and were terrified to actually speak Chinese to someone in China.
The free trial lesson left me with a good feeling. I decided to actually consider learning Chinese with the confident that it gave me. After talking to eChineseLearning again a few times, I settled on a shorter set of classes. 6 months later, I extended for another year. Now, about 14 months into my learning with them, I'm actually able to hold basic conversations and take the HSK test to prove that I have the skills and knowledge to maybe soon be considered "intermediate". I can't believe it.
I've also been supplementing my lessons with lots of TV shows, movies and documentaries. I've really gotten into Chinese culture and I hope to travel over there someday when I have the free time.
Overall, I am happy that I could find online lessons that helped me so much. I don't really have time to drive to school and add more commute time to my schedule. In the time that I saved traveling to class, I was able to work some overtime at work, which probably covered the cost of my lessons! Although the price of the lessons may seem high at first, when you consider the convenience and opportunity that knowing Chinese can add to your life....it's really a bargain. Highly recommend :)
