Daily Chinese Proverb: Educational Development

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Thursday, 5 November 2009 0 comments

This proverb is about how a good education program takes a long time to develop. It also makes me think about the methods I am using to learning Mandarin which are quite disseperate and not like a traditional syllabus.

Also interestingly, our education programs tend to be very un-environmentally friendly using a lot of paper and resources to sustain it.
