MelanieC - Jul 22 2016 08:30 AM in Chinese CharactersHi! I'm getting a new tattoo and I was considering this Chinese character for "strong": http://i2prun.com/images/qiang.jpg I'm an ultra-runner. I run 100km races. Most of my friends think I'm crazy. They also admire me for my strength and determination in achieving my goals. I'm completely dedicated to my training and my goal is to become the best athlete I can be. I'd love to qualify for our national 100km team. I'm fast and have won races. I don't let setbacks get me down. If I don't reach a...
Shelley - Jul 22 2016 01:21 AM in Chinese CharactersI have been toying with changing to traditional characters after talking to my neighbour (yes after 3 years, I have discovered my next door neighbour is from China) he has been giving me some pointers. He said and I don't know how true it is, that young teenagers from mainland China are now learning traditional characters, this made think I might change, have been contemplating it for a while. I have also just inherited the complete set of De Francis textbooks so learning material is not a problem,...
vellocet - Jul 21 2016 08:23 PM in Vocabulary, idioms, word lists . . .I got a comment on my Wechat post wherein I bitched about the excessively difficult captchas used by the official train ticket app 12306.cn. (Seriously, they're a nightmare.) It said, "哈哈哈。欺负歪果仁" After copying the text into Pleco Reader, the unfamiliar characters were defined as "internet slang for waiguoren". What's the deal with this? I know sometimes internet users will use alternate characters like the old and busted grass-mud-horse meme, but why this word? Why would people use...

StefW - Jul 20 2016 11:40 PM in BeijingDoes anyone know how exactly the single and AB rooms (Zijing appartment buildings) differ in Tsinghua University? Obviously the AB room is shared with separate bedrooms but do the AB rooms have a better/larger "kitchen" or bathroom than the single rooms? I'll be an exchange student for one semester, if that matters.
Zishan - Jul 20 2016 03:02 AM in Visa IssuesI apologize if this has been covered before, but I'm a Canadian citizen coming to China on a Confucius scholarship and I'm considering flying from New York, but given the short time frame (still waiting on my JW202) I would probably have to apply for my X1 visa at the New York Consulate. From what I understand, the Consulate will accept third-country applicants but it needs proof of their residence in New York. My sister lives there and I might be able to work something out, but does anyone know how strict they...
chinesemadrush - Jul 20 2016 12:46 AM in Resources for Studying ChineseHi everyone, Do you guys know of a free software with functionalities similar to those of MDBG Chinese Reader 8? The software is pretty expensive for a novice learner like myself so was wondering whether there are free or perhaps cheaper alternatives? I am interested in a software that can translate the text and pronounce the word. Thank you!
