I’ve spent a lot of time learning conlangs such as Esperanto, Láadan, Ido, and Toki Pona. Usually, while I’m learning a new conlang, I will make a website for it. For conlangs, there are a lot less resources out there than there are for natural languages, so while I might make a Twitter account for Spanish-only posts, I haven’t yet made a website for my target languages.
However, I think that building these webpages really help me learn, as well as organize the resources I find over time. While learning Esperanto, I was constantly referring to my own website as a sort of directory of knowledge, music, and videos I had found in the past.
So, I’ve decided to add a section to this Rejcx webpage for new languages that I’m learning. Instead of making a whole new website, it seems like a better idea to put all that stuff here. 🙂
So, I’m starting out with Mandarin, as that is what I’m currently learning. When I go back to Spanish I’ll add a Spanish page. And other languages? Who knows!
Learning Mandarin in Kansas City
On my Mandarin page, I will post up resources I am using to learn Mandarin Chinese, including websites, apps, etc.
However, I’m also taking a class through the Confucius Institute through the University of Kansas. Starting out with Conversational Chinese 1 with my boyfriend. We’ve both done some studying beforehand (him a lot more than me), but I’m enjoying getting practice speaking with other people, and having a native speaker to correct mistakes.
My little sister also took Mandarin Chinese at Longview Community College, so I could potentially practice with her as well! Yay!
