Today I went to meet my old Chinese professor, James Hargett, who also happens to be the head of the Department of East Asian Stuides at the University at Albany. The reason for my visit: I wanted to get back into the swing of the Chinese language. However, having already taken Chinese 101/102 and 201/202, AND having graduated from SUNY already, I didn’t know what my options were. Well, he laid them out for me.
There were a couple that were completely NOT realistic at all, like going to China for a year. While I would love to do this kind of “dive in at the deep end approach,” I can’t…because of my kids.
Another option was to do some kind of 8-9 week course during the summer, but again…I need to stay working. Got kids to support.
Then finally, we got to the option that I could do. It is still tricky, but I will find a way to make it work…
