In this episode we chat with Lotta, a Finnish college student who lived in Shanghai, China between High School and University. During part of that time she took intensive Chinese language courses. Lotta has continued with her Chinese language learning even after returning to Finland by using TV shows and other media until she can take more language classes at her university.
Lotta shares with us her intensive Mandarin Chinese classroom experience in Shanghai, how she used the language outside of the classroom and how Mandarin Chinese compares to the handful of other languages she has learned and used in her life thus far. Lotta’s mother, Pia, was a guest on the Expat Rewind Podcast last year, where shared her first impressions of Shanghai via a blog post she wrote after moving here from Finland. Hi Pia!
