So, right now I have 2 ideas on how to learn Chinese a little better. One is to write a post about a new word. I think a conscious effort to write about the word and think about the word will help it stay in my memory better.
My other idea is to every once and a while compose a digi-illustration about a new word and the character. This idea is sort just more for fun and will give me a chance and reason to play in photoshop.
