Chinese Relapse

After a prolonged lapse I will soon be restarting my attempts to learn Chinese by signing up for proper classroom-based lessons. My hope is that I’ll be able to learn better than previous DIY attempts. I’ve even been provided with a student ID card, effectively turning me into a bona-fide student once more.

On the development side of things I’ve finally updated all of my WordPress plugins to support the latest version of WordPress, as well as fixing most outstanding problems. I’m also planning to distribute the plugin library that I’ve developed over the course of the past few years. This will likely take place as a series of articles documentating how to use it. Hopefully this will prove useful either as the basis for other plugins, or simply as a learning resource.

  1. Good to see another post from you – hope it’s all going well.

    Since your last post, I too have left China (home to Brisbane). I’m also thinking about getting back into learning Chinese. My 3 year old daughter’s Chinese is better than mine now!

  2. Hi John,

    Apparantly Chinese is the language of the future 🙂 I like Chinese culture and history and studied Tai Chi for many years. I once say a photo of Chinese businessmen practising tai Chi in business suits (I’ve never been to China). Interestingly enough many of my Tai Chio friends like to practice in traditional chinese atire!

    On the WordPress front. I use your Headspace plug-in and its fantastic. You have done a really good job on this and your other plugins. I’m looking forward to reading your articles on your plugin library.
