Teaching my German hubby Chinese – Lesson 1 “lǎo gān mā”
One of the biggest challenges for an international marriage is the language and culture barrier. So we decided to teach each other the language of our own country. While learning the language, we will learn the culture as well.
Since we both do speak English and we can communicate well, we do admit that we’re a bit lacking the motivation to learn another new language. However, if we feel our learning process will benefit some other people, we feel our hard work is more worthwhile. That’s why we filmed our lessons and shared. We hope this will add some value to your language learning as well as helping you know more about the culture of China and Germany.
