After a couple of years learning Cantonese, I feel like I’m at an impasse.
I can’t read.
You might think that’s a bit odd, but not studying Chinese writing at the start was a conscious decision I made, based on the advice of Chinese experts I respect.
Here’s the thing…
Learning to write in Chinese is such a huge task, that your time is better spent learning to speak. (Or so the theory goes.)
So I did that.
But now I’m ready for more.
