Did you try to build your focus? Did Confucius’s proverb help you? I bet you’re on the right path to building patience! It takes time, but don’t worry you’ll master it soon. That reminds me of another Master. The notorious Jet Li. For him, having good energy and never feeling let down no matter what were key. Here’s what he said:
Did you dare talk to someone in Chinese? How did it go? If you made mistakes while speaking, don’t worry about it. You tried and that’s a great step forward. Don’t be too demanding with yourself. All you need is to keep on practicing and be patient. As dear Confucius once said:
Motivation is key to becoming a great Chinese speaker, but you know what else is important? Confidence! You need to feel confident enough to dare talk to someone in Chinese and practice. It can be scary, at first, to talk Chinese in front of strangers, you may be afraid of being mocked or observed. But if you don’t try, you’ll never reach your goal. Don’t let shyness rule your fluency!
