I run a side project that has nothing to do with computers or programming: Every Monday, I publish “Mandarin Weekly,” a curated collection of links and resources for people learning Chinese. I’ve been studying Chinese for nearly two years now, and it is one of the most interesting and fun (and challenging!) things I’ve ever done.
Mandarin Weekly is running a giveaway for six months of free Yoyo Chinese, a great online school that teaches Chinese vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, listening comprehension, and even reading characters. On Sunday, we’ll be giving away two premium six-month memberships to Yoyo Chinese, each worth $100.
If you’ve always wanted to learn Chinese, then this is a great way to do it. And if you are studying Chinese, then Yoyo is a great way to supplement or improve on your formal classroom studies. Indeed, I think that anyone learning Chinese can benefit from this course. To enter the giveaway, just sign up here:
But wait, it gets better: If you enter the giveaway, you get one chance to win. For every friend you refer to the giveaway, you get an additional three chances. So if you enter, and then get five friends to enter, you will have 16 chances to win!
And now, back to your regularly scheduled technical blog…
