Tough, learning Chinese is real tough. Every time I think I have something down we travel to a new area and meet new people and the language changes. While we were in Tianjin a former student living in China, Sam, meet up with us. We sat inside Helen's and he tried over and over to help correct our pronunciation of the language. It helped but we were still pretty bad. I really enjoy the challenge of learning a new language and now truly believe that you have to spend time in the culture to be able to speak a language fluently.
