China: 1.365 billion (with a 'B') people united under one hair color. That's 19% of the fucking world's population; for comparison, the United States makes up only 4.4% of the world's population.

Now I've been challenged to study their language for 30 days. Knowing I won't completely be able to achieve total fluency in a language that sounds like someone shaking a baby, I will strive to have a minimal conversation or at the very least introduce myself and so forth.

Hell, I like Chinese food, Chinese movies, Chinese stereotypes, and Chinese slave labor, so why not learn a little about their language and culture? Especially since I'm not even 100% sure that writing in the graphic above is actually Chinese or not.

The program being used is "Learn to Speak and Understand Mandarin Chinese with Pimsleur Language Programs" which consists of sixteen 30-minute lessons so I can review and relisten where needed to cover all 30 days. Don't worry though; the blog will still be written in English — for now at least.
