Radio program

On Wednesday I will start a 13 week radio program in Mandarin on Fairchild Radio 96.1 FM in Vancouver. I will try to encourage the many Mandarin speakers in Vancouver who need to improve their English and in most cases do not work on it in a concentrated and efficient way. Many do not make the effort to get to know English speaking people or spend time with them. Some are almost determined to prove that they have little in common with “the Westerner” who live in Vancouver. This tendency to see people, and oneself, as just part of a group rather than as individuals, is a great psychological barrier to language learning
