I recently picked up a book about learning the Taiwanese
language. It's title in Chinese, 台語真簡単is a bit strange.
"Taiwanese very simple"!
Really?!?! For anyone who has learned Mandarin knows
that Mandarin has four tones but Taiwanese has more!
Well the book comes with 4 CDs and I have always thought
that words of encouragement should always be used rather
than negative words. I believe that there is just too much
negative words out there and they do nothing but discourage
foreign language learning.
It is not my intention to really learn the language but to
use the book for my personal research as well as have a
bit of fun on the side.
