21: Learning Mandarin Chinese While Balancing Family, Health & Business with Cameron of Mandarin By Mistake Podcast
In this episode I am pleased to welcome Cameron, Host of the Mandarin By Mistake podcast. Cam is an Australian man learning Mandarin Chinese for business purposes. Cam and I had this conversation a few weeks ago and the video is already available on the Changing Scripts YouTube channel: -YouTube version of this interview on the Changing Scripts YouTube Channel, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOiOPtkD1vM&t=1193s but I also wanted to add it to the Geopats Podcast Changing Scripts show as well, thus this replay of sorts. I have talked about him and his podcast on Changing Scripts before because his approach to language learning and his podcast are unique. As you may guess from his podcast’s name, he focuses on mistakes that he makes when learning Chinese. He even has a section of the podcast dedicated to the mistake of the week. The emphasis by doing this is by practicing a lot and letting go of the idea of perfection.
