Target Language - English

In my opinion, you don't need to remember those Chinese characters, but you need to understand and read them when you see them. For me, I can't write an English word out, but when I see them, I can read them and understand their meaning. Then, you may ask me "How do you write an essay? You know, nowadays, all the input methods have the word association function. For example, if I want to input the word "unfortunately", I just input the three letters UNF, then the word "unfortunately" jumps out. So easy? Haha, this is my secret. Learning a language is really hard, especially for old people like me. But according to my experience, as long as you stick to it, listen, speak, read and write it all the time, there's definitely a day you can master it. Hope you all the best in your Chinese learning, and if I am able to offer any help, I am very happy to do it.
