roddy - Yesterday, 04:18 PM in General Study Advice and DiscussionYep, ten years ago today, in a 1600Y a month one-bedroom apartment with lino and fluorescent lights (in the BEDROOM) situated next door to Beijing's meteorology bureau I flicked the switch to turn on an entirely empty new-fangled thing called an Internet forum. And ten years later, after quite a few changes and a lot more consistency, it's still here. But now it's full of people and information. Some of the people have been around more or less as long as the site itself. Like I said last year, th...

Miko869 - Yesterday, 05:09 AM in Resources for Studying ChineseHi! I want to buy a new chinese dictionary, and I'm trying to choose between Collins Chinese Dictionary and Pocket Oxford Chinese Dictionary. While I can see some examples pages on amazon for the Collins, there's no way to look at some pages for the Oxford. Could somebody post a photo of two or three pages of this dictionary so that I can evaluate better which one to choose? Thank you!
Miko869 - Yesterday, 05:02 AM in Vocabulary, idioms, word lists . . .Hi! I'm trying to find the "way" to go over the intermediate stage, and since my biggest problem is the number of unknown words I encounter in my readings, I want to increase my vocabulary in a more systematic and easy manner: instead of looking up for every word I don't know (which I find really boring), I want to learn all the words listed in a pocket/mini dictionary (usually the 15000 basic words). This way I could enjoy the language while I'm reading without worrying too much about cr...
Brian US - May 22 2013 06:51 PM in Life, Work and Study in China in GeneralWe have spent months putting together applications for the 2013 CSC Scholarship and now the waiting begins.

skylee - May 22 2013 05:10 PM in SocietyIt has been reported that the reason why Hong Kong is not in the US Visa Waiver Program is that it is not a sovereign country. And there is a proposal to amend this “technicality” to make it possible to include HK in the programme. I have found a relevant senate bill proposed by a senator from Hawaii called Hirono. And then there are reports about some congressmen from Nevada proposing/ supporting (?) similar/ same (?) bills. I don’t know how these things work. What are the next...
Manuel - May 22 2013 02:44 PM in Chinese Computing and ElectronicsI use Taobao a lot and yet I may be doing something wrong, but I often notice that products that can be found when browsed for manually within a Taobao store cannot be found by means of Taobao's search function. This means that if you search for all "intel" unfortunately you will not be presented with a list of all products whose title contain the word "intel", so someone should be fired at Taobao. I've contacted customer support three times about this and they do squat about it, they obv...
JustinJJ - May 22 2013 01:56 PM in Vocabulary, idioms, word lists . . .Hi Can anyone tell me if there's a way I can create a frequency list of words used in a set text. Hoping there's a way I can paste text into a website e.g. from an article or manual and learn the words most frequently appearing. Cheers
bluenailvarnish - May 22 2013 06:09 AM in SocietyHey everyone Ok, I'm going to China in a few months and I will be staying with two families for two weeks at a time. I was wondering: What would be a good thank you gift to give them? I think money may be too crass, so I was thinking some gifts from England (home)? Unless there is another gift you should give them? Is there a standard amount you should spend on a host family etc? I don't want them to think I'm a freeloader!! Apologies if this is already a topic of conversation....
tooironic - May 21 2013 08:07 PM in Chinese CharactersIs there an online reference where I can look up the components of a Chinese character with their "vernacular readings" noted? Let's say I look up 壮 at chineseetymology.org. The reference tells me that the character is made up of the phonetic 爿qiang2, but since what I really want is to be able to explain in Mandarin how to write the character (this is actually a useful skill), the information "爿qiang2" is not terribly practical. Rather, knowing that it is written with a 将字旁 is much more usef...
