We put the challenge to lifestyle vlogger Shu. Shu grew up in England and communicated with her parents in their native Cantonese language, but she never really tackled learning the official language of China, Mandarin. It’s something she’s always wanted to do, so when Rosetta Stone suggested she try our 30-day challenge, she jumped at the chance. Let’s see how she got on……
In this video, she shares her everyday morning routine speaking entirely in Mandarin as well as a conversation with Mumma Shu (“even she said my pronunciation has been better”). She also talks about how much it meant to her, to learn the language and re-connect with her Chinese roots. Watch carefully and you’ll see Shu has a special discount code that you can use to start your own learning story with Rosetta Stone here.
We all have our own reasons for wanting to learn a language. For some of us, it’s just the pure pleasure of learning and curiosity that drives us. For Shu the challenge of learning Mandarin is also about connecting back to her roots and strengthening bonds with her family.
