Adult Learning Advice for Chinese

It's very important to exercise your brain as you get older I have noticed. Just like exercise for your physical to combat our food rich environment, exercise for the brain is important.

I like this quote from How to Train the Aging Brain in the NY Times:

“The brain is plastic and continues to change, not in getting bigger but allowing for greater complexity and deeper understanding,” says Kathleen Taylor, a professor at St. Mary’s College of California, who has studied ways to teach adults effectively. “As adults we may not always learn quite as fast, but we are set up for this next developmental step.”

A teacher of mine was going very strong in his 80's and 90's, Peter Drucker. Every year he would choose an area to study, as a way to keep his mind fresh. He studied Japanese art and actually taught a class in it, becoming a true Renaissance man.

I suggest that Learning Chinese is a great way to exercise your brain.
