Stretching Your Mind

Ni hao ! (Hello in Chinese),

I have just started learning Mandarin Chinese (through a course at a local community college) and am enjoying the feeling of stretching my mind !

I am also very aware of the saying, "You get out of it what you put into it!". The last language I learned was Latin back in high school and, as you can imagine, there hasn't been much use for it in conversations. Chinese characters are also an interesting challenge. They are so different from English characters or words that it is almost like learning a secret language of pictographs (almost like that ... but different).

What have you done recently to stretch your mind? Tell me about it in the comments !

Write On !
