In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    When he was learning chinese, he „would haggle and try to get like 2 yen more“?
    I never knew that Japanese speak in chinese.
    You learn something new everyday 😉

    Or is it that Chinese use Japanese currency? 😛

  4. My native tongue is Filipino, but I speak fluent English. I tried learning Japanese (because I love anime, and my brother already speaks Japanese) but has found it challenging, especially with the writing part. Now, I’m trying to learn Spanish through Duolingo and a Lonely Planet pocket book dictionary for travelers. Good luck to us all haha!
