      Hey! What are your online resources for learning Chinese? What podcast, show, channel are you using to keep your Chinese at a certain level. I recently discovered a TV program broadcast on CCTV-1 called 生活提示 Shenghuo tishi (Daily Tips) where everyday topics are discussed.

      他虽然显得尴尬,但总算消了气。Although he appeared embarrassed, but anger disappeared.   尴尬 gāngà embarrassed, awkward; 尢 "a person who has lost the ability to walk,"; 监 jiān supervise, jail;   显得 xiǎnde to appear; 显 xiǎn to make visible; 消 xiāo to disappear;   can I assume the above 2 are opposite words? 总算 zǒngsuàn finally;总 zǒng always; 算 suàn to calculate;   any suggestions to improve the understanding of the  above sentence?

      by "general understandings" ,I mean in practise rather than official explanations. what should we do to be offered for Z-visa?   I can examplify some samples of properties (but these are just my predictions ,I have no idea for the procedures in practise)   -- having three years of experience in the relevant area/job -- holding/ having patent/utility model or design -- being younger than a defined quantity of age. -- being offered a job position in advance (prior to arrive) -- something else and etc

      Does anyone have, or know of, an index of Chinese Text Analyzer reports on various novels? I know the CTA software is personalized to each user's level as they read. What would be nice is to see the breakdown of words by HSK/TOCFL levels from the getgo as a crude reference to help narrow down the whole process of locating a .txt file. I enjoy reading mostly paper books, so any usage of CTA is prepwork for me, and if a crude report like what I'm thinking of could save me from even bothering hunting for 50% of the novels I might go through the hassle of finding online, it would be worth it.

      Context from story:我想那两名男子明明吃了亏,却还被人误会不讲卫生, 岂不是饱受委屈?想到这里,我鼓起勇气上前解释。 Could not get the meaning, because of these unknowns   讲卫生 jiǎng wèishēng pay attention to hygiene  卫 I know “guard, protect”; now learnt => health 受 receive => suffer 委屈 wěiqu => to feel wronged 鼓起勇气 gǔqǐyǒngqì => to summon one’s courage  勇 => brave 解释 => explanation    But do you want to share any of your experiences with the above words?

      Hello everyone. I'm looking for a good Intermediate-Advanced level reader (especially focussed on modern/current China).   I recently came across the book called  Eyes on China 我看中国 (An Intermediate-Advanced Reader of Modern Chinese) by Princeton University Press, however, I could not find any user review online.  (https://press.princeton.edu/books/paperback/9780691190952/eyes-on-china)   For anyone that owns, or has used this book, what are your thoughts?   : )   I am also wondering how "Eyes on China" compares with a book like "Reading Into a New China" (2nd Edition, Vol 1 & 2) by Cheng & Tsui.   Thank you all! 😀

      Hello all!    I had difficulty trying to decide where to post this because it’s not strictly about quick translation. I’ve been given 2 clay teapots that I believe might be yixing teapots. I have no knowledge about teapots whatsoever so I have 2 general questions about these 2 teapots.    1. Does anyone know the quality of the make by looking at these photos? I know that one of them I think the maker is 袁義和 from looking at the seal on the bottom of the handle but the other one, I can’t see any seal other than the writing at the bottom of the pot in cursive that I can’t read, so I’d love to know what it says.    2. They have quite a lot of stains both from tea and white stains which I guess is mineral deposits? Maybe I’m wrong, also these have been sitting around in god knows where for ages so I wonder if anyone here know if there is any way I could clean the white stains and give me some good tips on how to clean it well but gently. Also would these be safe to use?    Thanks so much in advance!      This is the other teapot, this is the one I think the maker is 袁義和

      Hi there,   I am learning Chinese for a few years now since I have visited the country before Corona times. Another hobby of mine is making small quiz games about geography. So I tried to combine both. The result is a quiz about the provinces of China and one about the provincial capitals:   The Provinces of China: https://geographyquiz.app/quiz/china-provinces/27 Capitals of the Provinces: https://geographyquiz.app/quiz/china-provincial-capitals/46   But as a Chinese learner I added the options to learn the places using Chinese character (simplified and traditional) and Pinyin! (change it via "Language")   Hope you like it!
