The first set of questions came from William.
- How well do you feel that you understand dialog in TV shows?
- Do you think there's any point that you could have sped things along by studying, or were the benefits of learning naturally worth taking it slower?
- Did you have any initial problems with boredom while watching Chinese shows, since you couldn't understand them? If so, at what point did the shows become fun to watch?
Our next question come from Bakunin, who is also a TV method enthusiast blogging about how best to learn naturally.
- Why do you want to record your very first conversation in Chinese? Do you want to demonstrate that the TV method leads to fluent speaking without any transition period?
Next, there was a question from Slucido about listening skills.
- I am curious about your listening skills. How much do you understand? 70%, 90%... If you listen isolated audio, like Mandarin radio, do you understand anything?
Then there was a comment from Kanjiguy. I like that name. He just recently came from out of the blue. I now see he has a blog with some TV method posts and a Natural Language Learning theme. I'll have to check that out!
- I'm interested to know how well you can understand and how you feel about your fluency listening/reading(if you began studying reading yet)/etc.
The Arabic Student also left a comment for me.
- I too am very interested to see how this has worked so far. Even if you are just able to do basic things I would call it a success! I envy you...
- Just an idea, but could you make a list of all the shows (or at least some of them) that you watched in your 2000 hours?
Well, that covers all the questions. Thanks for watching!
