i just mainly want to learn how to speak and understanding mandarin, not so much writing it [cuz it’s wayy too hard] Is it possible for me to learn how to speak and understand mandarin without learning how to write ? and im just a student [16 years old] so i don’t have money to buy expensive books or look for a lesson cause it cost too much, i want to learn it by myself, any tips for that ? I aslo watch a lot of taiwanese movie but i can only learn some basic stuffs from it, please help i really want to learn.
and i am not chinese so i don’t really know anything except for some basic stuffs i get from movies. and also how long do you think it will take me before i can speak/understand it fluently ?
