I was so intimidated to learn Mandarin, I have to travel to Beijing for business in three months and it seems like... well, like learning Chinese, haha. Tyson made me feel so much more relaxed about the idea. He carries on conversations with me in Mandarin where I have to continually use the words and phrases I'm working on. I'm learning so much and most importantly every time I work with him I feel more confident. I think in three months I'm actually going to be able to find my way to the bathrooms, order dinner, and exchange pleasantries thanks to Tyson. Oh and I'm also learning little things about the culture - how to be polite, what not to say, etc. Stuff I need to know to (hopefully) not put my foot in my mouth. Thanks Tyson!
