Become an excellent translator and polyglot
I am a mad language learner. I do not like to go with the mainstream. That's why I prefer to learn Esperanto when I should actually go ahead with my PhD.
Learning many foreign languages. Chinese was my major at university. I also learned more or less Japanese, Thai, Indonesian, French and other languages. I write diaries in different languages on the platform Lang-8 and get corrections by native speakers. So far, I have known more than 1.000 friends from different countries. I also shoot language videos for Youtube.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I worked as a volunteer translator in a Buddhist monastery in Beijing and joined the future monks classes to study Buddhism.
I just attended the Esperanto World Congress in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Completely surprisingly, I witnessed the 1st Gay Pride in Hanoi, Vietnam.
I organized the fan meeting for Australian singer Darren Hayes' 40th birthday in Beijing.
