" You guys have been insanely helpful. I’m going thru path to fluency right now and it has really rekindled my interest in learning chinese after slowing down at HSK5. I’ve always sort of known that achieving fluency was going to be a lifelong endeavor, but thanks to all of your recent advice I won’t be restricted to just textbooks and grammar points."
