I use books on tape on my iPod to practice speaking chinese. I always do it in my apartment because its the only private place I have. I would go to the park, but its usually full of people walking their dogs and I don’t want to look too weird talking to myself in chinese (I’m still in the USA btw, coming next summer).
My question is where are some good places people have found to practice their chinese without sticking out like a sore thumb? I’m just curious? One of these days i’m going to visit the coast and find a secluded spot and practice while looking out over the pacific.
