Mandarin Chinese (#2)

Day two of learning Chinese. I'm using an audio-only approach, without Pinyin, which is the system used to translate Chinese characters into the Roman alphabet. The pronunciation of Pinyin usually isn't intuitive, so having a Pinyin transcript of what's being said might make things more difficult for many speakers. Instead I just listen to audio files of native Chinese speakers.

Here is what I'm trying to say: "I am American. I speak English. I speak English very well. I do not speak Chinese. I speak Chinese, a little. I do not speak well. Goodbye."

As you can see, I'm already a thrilling Chinese conversationalist.
