Language: Myths about learning Mandarin Chinese with Von of "brain burn" fame
Show Notes

Today’s episode is not our usual conversation style. Instead we’re going to get a deep dive update from previous guest Von from episode 13 of Geopats Language. Back in November I participated inhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/napodpomo/ ( National Podcast Posting Month) (NaPodPoMo), where crazy Podcasters like myself published an episode a day for a month. For this experiment I invited previous guests from all of the Geopats Podcast Network to come back on the podcast. I asked them to relisten to their original episode and record 2 things: an update on what’s changed for them since that episode and their impressions of that episode (most of which were a couple of years old). Most guests sent about 10-20 minutes of thoughts to me for this project but Von sent 50 minutes. Oh, this was all so interesting to hear. But for NaPodPoMo, I was only publishing mini episodes that were about 10 minutes long. So I used ahttps://player.captivate.fm/episode/50567d61-700c-4268-b5ab-f6163f4bd4ad ( “brain burn” clip) of Von’s that was about this length for NaPodPoMo and saved the rest of his language thoughts for later. Welcome to later.    During this episode he shares: -how some people overthink learning Mandarin Chinese tones -how language learning as an adult can be easier than learning languages as a child -how Mandarin Chinese gets more difficult the more you learn it (exponentially so) -how he got his Chinese name through rather nefarious methods Would love to hear from you!https://twitter.com/stephfuccio ( Twitter),https://www.instagram.com/stephfuccio ( Instagram),http://www.linkedin.com/in/dstephfuccio/ ( LinkedIn) & you can even leave a voice message onhttps://stephfuccio.weebly.com/contact.html ( Speakpipe).
