Learning Mandarin not as intimidating as it might seem

From Sunday Morning, 10:43 am on 22 September 2019

'Mandarin Superstar' Mike Insley began learning the language when he and his wife moved to China to work in a winery in the remote region of Ningxia in 2015. He's back in New Zealand now, but is brushing up on his Mandarin skills as part of the New Zealand Chinese Language Week, which commences today. He looks back on his time in the Chinese wine industry and offers a few tips to those who might be considering taking up the language.
