Currently I’m learning (aka listening) mainly Mandarin, Japanese and Korean.
Chinese progress this far-
This is my progress that I started in June. I haven’t added the listening time that I have done prior to June. But since I understand Japanese and Korean best, I guess that I have done most listening in these two languages.
How I listen-
I call it active listening since what I’m currently listening/watching has my full attention. I don’t believe that having some other language play in the background while I’m doing something else, would have any use. Otherwise I would be able to speak Finnish or Russian already since you hear it a lot here.
