Have been learning Chinese for about 10 years now. Although I get to practice every day with my wife and family, I am still only average.

Where I live is about 80% Chinese speakers so I have plenty of people to practice with and it's like living in China without actually being there.

Can you please provide more information in your answer as it only points out the obvious rhyming, but doesn't actually answer the question.
