I have been developing for over 20+ years in the fields of academia, financial, research, medical, banking, non-profit and military. I am Micro$oft, Cisco and Juniper certified. Extensive knowledge of Windows, Office and Adobe Suites, Lotus and Unix/Linux. Professional knowledge of VB 5-6, ASP, .NET, Cobol, Fortran, Pascal, Assembly, Visual C++, .NET, Java, JS, PHP, HTML, XML, GreaseMonkey, TamperMonkey, Wordpress, AJAX, SharePoint, Azure and JQuery. Database knowledge of DBase, Access, MS SQL, mySQL, and Sqlite. Constantly learning more and trying to improve my knowledge of new technologies.

I have been an elite grey hat hacker (white/black) in my professional life and red hat in my military service. I have worked with the NSA, CIA, DOD, DOJ, MI6, and Interpol. I have expertise in encryption, obfuscation, encoding/decoding, and compression technologies. Expertise in all manner of algorithms (biological and artificial intelligence sims, and heuristics).

I served as a Major in the Marine Corp special forces from 1992 to 2003 and Lt. Col. from 2004 to 2006 after which I was honorably discharged. I have degrees in BioChemistry, Physics, Philosophy, Psychology and Political Science. 1st year residency medical school (didn't finish), public health with Epidemiology emphasis (worked for the CDC and NIH), and genetic engineering (member of the Genome Project). Have taught Java, VB, C++ and Networking (Cisco CCNA/CCNP/Voice/Security) as an associate professor.

@CA55CE37 how is learning Cantonese the same as Mandarin? This is not a duplicate.

I have tried the google searches and youtube videos, not my first rodeo, and much of it is very scattered and unlikely to be useful in a structured and consistent teaching style. I will give what you listed a shot though.

Yeah I live with it already :) so that's covered, I listen to it constantly (they act like I am not there half the time) and I pick up more of what they are saying than they know. I just want to be able to engage in the conversation at some point too. So I will take a look at what you suggested, thank you.
