I think I'll actually learn it this time. Dragging myself to class in the middle of the night is much easier when I know Sini is there too, and yesterday's lesson was made so much more pleasant by the teacher explaining to us what various parts of characters mean by themselves.

The tones and the sibilants are a source of pain and suffering, but I think I'll manage.

Trying to learn Cantonese in parallel with Mandarin sometimes helps and sometimes interferes.
