We all hate traffic jams and rush hour, but let’s face it. There’s nothing you can do about it (except constantly travel at the crack of dawn). So why not use the time for something productive, like, say, learn a language?
I stumbled onto some free language courses. I checked out the Chinese links and found lots of great resources in small, bite-size podcast chunks. Perfect companion for bus rides and long walks.
There’s also a Tagalog tutorial… I’m half-tempted to give it a go.
