I am currently in the job search process in Malaysia. Many job openings here literally require you to speak/read/write in Mandarin. This is difficult for me as I was not raised in a Mandarin-speaking household.
As this seems to be a crucial skill to have, especially for the sake of my future, I've decided to invest my time and attention to learning it. I have found a beginner class for adults.
I am freelancing to make some money but it is not enough to cover the full cost of the class. If you have some spare change you're willing to contribute to my Mandarin class expense, I'd be forever grateful.
You know the saying give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; teach him how to fish and you feed him for life? This is me taking the first step to teaching myself.
Any amount helps.
Thank you very much.
