"I like many who participate in SMC face the challenge of learning Chinese outside of China. So I believe that to make Chinese part ‘real life’ or daily life has considerable challenges. February will be a major milestone for me, as I…"

"I love this idiom as well. FYI: This is not a 成语, though: it's a 俗语 (idiom, folk expression.) 成语are always 4 character expressions, for example: 有备无患 (lit: have preparation, no worry) Happy Studying!"

Short Bio - what's your story? What languages do you speak & why Chinese?
I have been learning languages on and off for the past 20 years. Many years ago I learnt some Japanese as part of a tourism diploma. It was one of the best learning experiences I have ever had. After finishing my diploma, about year or so later I found myself living and working in Cologne, Germany. During my time there I was always enrolled in a courses of German language learning at several colleges. After returning home I started learning Japanese at Griffith University, however I was not satisfied with the pace of learning. I left to live and work in Osaka, Japan. Again I studied formally at a language school during my stay. I returned home again and studied Japanese at university. After completing university I left to work in Harbin, China. I had good intentions to learn Mandarin, but was undisciplined and distracted. I didn't really study as I had done in Germany and Japan. This was ten years ago and I have regretted not learning Chinese properly. So I feel I have unfinished business with learning Chinese Mandarin and am once again enrolled in a formal course of language study at the University of New England studying for a Diploma of Modern Languages.

I had inquired about the program to fulfill some coursework for my school district (I am an ESL teacher in a U.S. public school district).  It was difficult to find a program that was accepted and reimbursable by my employer.  However, I decided to not take it just yet because I believe I can do better on my own.  But I feel that this program is good if you need undergraduate credits and/or class structure (with transcript).  Here's what the website says (below).  

UMUC's Chinese courses begin by teaching students the pinyin transliteration system, followed by study of both simplified and traditional characters. Students can expect to read approximately 70 new characters per term, while at the same time learning important vocabulary and essential grammar needed to communicate in Chinese. UMUCs online version of CHIN 111 is an award winning course that features animated videos with multiple playback options.

Please contact the Academic Director for Foreign Languages about placement into Chinese if you have had prior contact with the Chinese language (whether through class work, experience living in a Chinese -speaking place, or personal acquaintances). Those with no prior contact with Chinese may enroll in CHIN 111.  Here's the catalog webpage:  http://webapps.umuc.edu/soc/us.cfm?fAcad=UGRD&fSess=2128&fLoc=ALL&fSubj=CHIN.  They do not offer a degree in Chinese it seems.
