In this episode, we bring you a recording of our recent event with Robert Daly, director of the Wilson Center's Kissinger Institute on China and the United States and AMS board member.

The lecture focuses on building Mandarin fluency after formal studies have finished, how to incorporate it into professional practice, and how to continue to not only maintain it, but actually improve it. Robert has dedicated a large portion of his life to studying Chinese and has wrestled, as many of us have (and continue to do!), with the difficulties of maintaining language skills while working full-time, often outside of China.
