I’ve stumbled on these videos on Youtube of Laowai showing their speaking skills. Some need some practice, but they all are admirable in what they do. It’s actually interesting listening to some laowai, because their vocabulary will be limited, just like my own. Therefore it enables me understand a bit more. Yes, their pronunciation is not perfect, but it also gives me some insight into my own pronunciation, so I can improve it, by seeing the errors others they make. The fourth video actually features a guy I met through a mutual friend last year in Beijing.

I hope these inspired you, just like it did for me. I’m going to try and film some videos myself.
