    Do you know how this sounds?

    Hum...I'd say that if you're willing to give it 10-15 hours/week, you can learn the basic in less than 3 months (if you're a total foreigner I mean)
    One of the most adventurous things left for us is to go to bed. For no one can lay a hand on our dreams....

    WHAT???? Every day for 12 years for an hour more like. Every day I study for at least an hour and try to speak with my parents the whole day for the past 12 years and I can only speak. Now then, image writing which is about... 10 times harder then speaking.

    Well...the point is that you have to practice ^^
    You can't compare a 15-20hours/week with a 1hour/week course.
    You'd be surprised to see foreign student at my association who were barely able to read the alphabet in French going through our school's french program and be able to speak/read and write french without too much problems after only 2 months.
    The same goes with a friend, he took a 3 months chinese course before he went to shanghai and he was able to survive there without too many problems.

    Now it depends what you consider as basics...
