The Blog of Jake Kelfer
To think that we are already two-thirds of the way done with 2016 is pretty unreal. It feels like just yesterday I was creating my goals for the New Year and figuring out what I wanted to accomplish. To give you a quick update, since the start of 2016 I wrote a book, became a bestselling author, opened an inspirational/educational speaking business, traveled Europe, went to the NBA draft and completed eight months of My 12 Month Journey and that's just the beginning.
For this month, I wanted to learn basic Chinese. I’ve always had an interest in learning this amazing language ever since my grandpa told me I should learn it many years ago. This month was my chance to listen to Poppy and begin learning Chinese. As I mentioned in my middle of the month update article, I set out to learn Chinese for a multitude of reasons. After completing this month and learning over 200 words and phrases, I am very satisfied with my progress and will be continuing to learn Chinese when I have time.
Without further adieu, enjoy this short clip of me introducing and telling you a little about myself in Chinese.
For those wondering what I just said, the translation is below:
How are you?
My name is Jake Kelfer and I am American.
I wrote a book.
I know how to speak a little Chinese.
I hope you get a kick out of my short introductory video and I ask that you share your thoughts and enjoy the journey of life.
