Yes, I know, I’m going to hell for that title. Anyway, I’ve decided to make a series of videos monitoring my Mandarin speaking progress (assuming that there is any, har har). I stole this idea from My Pursuit of Happiness, a blog by a German student at Shida. iMovie was surprisingly fun to fiddle around with but, as you can see, Ron convinced me to go easy on the various sound and transition effects. Spoil sport. My Mandarin is still terrifically spotty, but it has improved over the three weeks I’ve been in Taipei. In fact, I wish I had made my first video sooner, so it would contrast more with future videos. In this first video, I introduce myself and my leeetle Blythe dolls. Enjoy!
