I got on stage for 2 livestreams today in HelloTalk.
One was with the Japanese guy I originally did one with. He just moved to California, so now we’re in similar time zones and I don’t have to stay up until 1am.
The other was with a Chinese teacher. She walked around her school and pointed out different things like soccer field, monuments, calligraphy writings, teaching what they were in Chinese. Then she went to her office and asked people to come up on stage to practice with her or ask questions. I can barely speak Chinese, so I was hesitant, but I went ahead and raised my virtual hand in the app. We talked for 50 minutes while others listened (about 20 viewers). She explained times of day, sentence order, different uses of ‘de’, and tone pronunciation. It’s like I had a 1-on-1 tutor!
It was fun, and I look forward to being more active in these livestreams.
