Nikola Hoskova - Today, 02:21 PM in Chinese TelevisionHey guys, I suppose that my problem has probably been mentioned here, but, anyway - could anyone recommend me any program to watch Chinese TV? I would like to watch Chinese news on daily basis, but the TV's website's 直播 does not seem to work very often. Thanks in advance for any help.
stapler - Today, 02:09 PM in General Study Advice and DiscussionI've been listening to this radio stations at work http://www.rti.org.tw/ Occasionally I hear a news story that sounds very interesting (particularly the political discussions) but I can't catch what's going on. So I was wondering if anyone knows if there are any transcripts available. Thanks if you can help!

uni419 - Yesterday, 10:33 PM in Textbooks for learning ChineseHey, anyone at IUP how would be willing to pick up a few of text books for me to use as part of self-study once I'm back in the states? I'll be in Beijing from June-August, and would be more than willing to throw on 100-200RMB as a sign of appreciation.
Gune - Yesterday, 05:20 PM in General Study Advice and DiscussionHello guys, been lurking around this forum from time to time and finally made an account to get some feedback on my study plan. First some background. I am a 24 year old guy from Sweden studying Chinese from home, I work from home as well so time is not an issue. My Chinese girlfriend lives with me and is fluent in the language. I do not believe I have the time to hire a private tutor at this time. So, here is what I do on a weekly basis, any feedback would be good. Am I moving too fast? Too slow?...
Maria1809 - Yesterday, 02:31 AM in SocietyHello! I am studying marketing design and have heard, that it is quite bad to use number 4 (four) and green colour creating brand logos. But is it a critical issue? For example in Europe number 13 is being perceived as a bad number, but that does not mean, that this number is not used in Brand names and logos. The same with colour - in Europe black colour symbolise funeral, but we still use it a lot in marketing design. Is it really true, that a good logo for Chinese people should be red/gold only? Thank you ver...
Aphorisme - Mar 29 2015 11:29 PM in General Study Advice and DiscussionHi everyone, I would be glad to hear your views and advises concerning the tricky chinese near-synonyms I've searched on the Internet but it seems like this topic is a little bit underrated. Two years ago, while i was speaking chinese, i decided suddenly to use the word "伟大“ instead of the classical "很大“ in a sentence. At that time i had just learned this word so i was happy to use it...but i totally failed as the chinese girl in front of me told me "啊，你的意思是"很大"，是不是？“. Needless to say...
Lou - Mar 29 2015 10:30 PM in General Study Advice and DiscussionHey everyone! (I hope I'm right that such a thread doesn't exist here right now.) I think we desperately need a "Your Sucess of the Day"-Thread, after all, we are all walking on a quite difficult path. The concept is simple: Just post your sucess of the day! It doesn't matter whether you just archieved a really important goal (such as finishing "The Dream of the Red Chamber" in the Chinese original) or you only had a tiny litte sucess today (such as being able to write one character more than yesterday)-as long...
Jemima - Mar 29 2015 10:29 PM in Life, Work and Study in China in GeneralHi! I am a Swedish writer and science teacher, and right now I'm working on a novel in which a Chinese boy is one of the main characters. The story takes place in a place far away, where this boy -- among with lots of others -- are living in a refugee camp. Since I want my story to be realistic and since Chinese culture and language are different from mine, I’m afraid of making too many mistakes. Could anyone help me? It would be greatly appreciated if you would! Questions: 1. I have...
