I'm starting Mandarin classes tomorrow. I'm pretty excited about it. It'll be nice to be in an actual classroom setting than sitting alone in my room practicing. Too bad they don't offer Cantonese. I know Mandarin is the most widely spoken dialect but I kind of like the way Cantonese sounds a little more. And it's what Jen and her family speaks so even if I am fluent in Mandarin I probably wouldn't understand what they were saying.
