"Embracing any world language, but perhaps especially Mandarin, is a lifelong project. I hope essentially to set students off in the right direction: to delight and to explore in the language learning process, to have as much fun as possible. Most of all to understand in the deepest sense that we are engaged in a great deal more than vocabulary and grammar, than learning, for example, the right word (and don’t forget the right tone) for noodles or taxi cab. I subscribe fully to the notion that we cannot grasp a language without understanding the culture and frame of mind that brought it into being."
