Learn Chinese

 

Being the language lovers that we are... A place to talk about, or write in languages other than Spanish and English.

I used to be in Kunming, China for studying Mandarin language at 'Minds Abroad'. Their Chinese learning programs are really impressive.

I learned it for a little bit, just know some words. But let me give you some site which might help you.

<snip>
Great site, a lot of different tutorials on all sort of subjects.

Forum similar to this, only about Chinese and China.

Also on livemocha.com you can learn few things.

There are other books and resources too.

I guess when we learn chinese, we have to throw away all the grammar of english etc. Because chinese doesn't really have much past tense -perfect present tense etc . Yet They do have female,male and other words for each different words, like tree, water related. It's same in some way like you know actor, e female version is actress. It's around the same in some way.

There's still a few but not very common I guess.

Also, the same sound of that word,pin yin can have different chinese words of the same sound. For instance, the sound, Ma 吗, 妈,马。

吗, is normally word that use in asking question like in spanish, you have the question marks front & back.

妈, is refer to mama, mother's meaning, normally we call our mother, 妈妈 but if you're a lazy child, you just use one word, 妈 like me

马 is refer to the word. horse



And chinese words, the most hard part is remembering all those words :s I still have nightmare of learning the spelling for my chinese.

but some of my friends have no problem with it. perhaps it's just me

And in Spanish you can say either "Yo también soy chino" or "Yo también soy de China".

And finally I know all of the characters in one of your Chinese sentences! (Without tone marks using pinyin romanization, I read it as "wo ye shi zhong-guo ren.")
