I am looking for a program where I can learn to speak Mandarin Chinese fluently in a short time period (up to six months or so). I’m currently in college but don’t have time to take Mandarin classes and want to explore the alternatives. I once talked to to someone who became fluent in a program after only six months. Does anyone have any knowledge of these programs or links to their websites? I’m not talking about study abroad, but something entirely different. My college has abroad programs, but they also include reading and writing and don’t reach the same level of speaking fluency.
