To start this journey, one needs a number of items. I  have narrowed down the necessary items for this task to:

  1. a personal computer with sound and internet
  2. language buddies (online and offline)
  3. focus
  4. motivation
  5. time (set aside 15 minutes to six hours per day on your chosen language)
  6. rewards (reward yourself every time you achieve a small task however small it may appear to be)

After much research, I have narrowed down my language choices to Mandarin and Japanese. Lessons and other learning resources will be taken from the internet.

Here is a list of sites for Chinese Mandarin:
