Bigdumogre - Yesterday, 06:52 PM in Vocabulary, idioms, word lists . . .I hear this a lot but how do you: 1. Choose the words? Are they something you are interested in? Common words you thought of? 2. How do you memorize them? Also memorize the character? 3. Do you work them into sentences? Only use one new word per sentence? Really need to up my vocabulary
yedafu - Yesterday, 04:29 AM in Speaking and Listening SkillsHi everyone! This is my first try to understand a full 相声, the method I will use here is the same as I Saw in a previews wonderful work of some guys here in the forum, with the TV show QQSRX. That means I will take it minute by minute. Hopefully on a pace of one new minute a day. I’m sure it will not be perfect nor I will keep this pace…so I welcome you all to try and take this journey with me. You are more than welcome to post your own translation, and your own remarks and opinions. *Just want to clarify...
Lu - Feb 10 2016 11:58 PM in Resources for Studying ChineseOr is it just me? The last few days, when I searched a word, it returns ' 抱歉，没找到与"XXX"相关的句子'. It's not that the words I search are too obscure, I tried some really common ones. Do others have this issue too? Does anyone know what's going wrong and what I can do to fix it?

112233 - Feb 09 2016 01:13 PM in General Study Advice and DiscussionHi everyone, I'm thinking about enrolling for a semester and/or potentially a summer school (if this is possible) at a University in Beijing taking classes at the post-grad/undergrad level in Chinese alongside other Chinese students. I would be looking at taking classes in economics, science (ideally in the natural resources space) and potentially politics / philosophy. This seems like a fantastic way to take my Chinese up to a more advanced level and also build a deeper understanding of China. From what I under...

sangajtam - Feb 08 2016 06:18 PM in Chinese MoviesWhy Chinese movies are so bad. Acting is terrible. I cant stand it. Only good movies i watched with interesting plot and not bad acting are: http://www.imdb.com/...0/?ref_=nv_sr_1 - black coal thin ice http://www.imdb.com/...ref_=fn_al_tt_1 -touch of sin http://www.imdb.com/...ref_=fn_al_tt_1 - life without principles Those 3 movies where better than most USA films i ever seen. Are there any more (especially mandarin, not horrors, and not too old, newer than lets say 2008)?

HHov - Feb 08 2016 06:55 AM in Resources for Studying ChineseRecently, I have started studying Chinese and so far I'm really enjoying it! O have been listening to some easy and catchy mandarin songs, which I did understand after a while. However, the fun would be even greater when I'm able to watch, or listen to, simple audio or video. I'm wondering what level (HSK?) I would need to do so. Also, does anyone have any suggestions for watching material that is very easy? Thanks in advance!!
majid01 - Feb 08 2016 12:35 AM in BeijingHello everyone! I got accepted for the CSC scholarship, but have yet to select my university. I will apply for Peking University. I'm here to ask for your advice. I'm currently 21 years old (almost 22), and would like to have an undergraduate degree in international finance or management from Peking University. In my home university, I have already completed 2 years out of 4. My mandarin is quite limited and I understand that I will need to take a years worth of mandarin class to be brought up to speed. D...
