Experimenting with a beginner level writing thread?

Recommended Posts

edelweis

hmm so this is an idea that originated from this thread and somehow last night it became this draft (it might fail outright, but then it might also work for a little while before failing...), let me know what you think.

 

(note: although my reading level is intermediate, my writing is very poor, so I'm placing myself in the "beginners" group for this).

 

I propose an experiment in the Chinese corner, to practice beginner level Chinese writing. EDIT: actually we started writing in Chinese in this thread right here.

 

Let's think of a suitable theme as a starting point, and create a thread where everyone is invited to answer and interact in simple Mandarin Chinese (traditional or simplified characters).

 

It would be mostly beneficial to relative beginners (people who know 300 to 500 words?),

but all levels can participate, just keep your answers level-appropriate (more on this below) -

who knows, it might be fun (?)

 

Since there is no teacher to correct the posts,

beginners should practice sentence structures that they have already learnt.

=> if you don't know how to say something you'd like to say, write a simpler sentence for now.

You can always go  and look up how to express your initial idea (textbook, teacher, quick translations forum...) and come back later to show off your progress.

(it doesn't mean that you have to be 100% sure that your sentences are correct - just don't write pure guesswork or sentences which you *know* are incorrect.)

 

More advanced learners can take part in the same way, keeping the sentences simple and the post of reasonable length (no more than 10 sentences?).

And you can still help correct beginners' mistakes if you want, but please do it:

by pointing out (in Chinese) that the sentence has a problem

or

by providing a sample correct sentence in Chinese.

=> if clarification in English is desired, the people involved must discuss that in another thread outside of the Chinese Corner.

 

Vocabulary: people who have learnt less than 500 words can just use what they have learnt.

As a reference for the more advanced learners, let's use the 300-words HSK2 vocabulary below.

Everyone can use always use some extra words (place names, nationalities, hobbies, professions, daily life items...) without exageration.

If you want, you can give the English meaning of some of the extra words.

If you want, you can hide the English translation in a spoiler box.

But try to avoid using advanced structures/particles/specialised vocabulary which would make your post too difficult to understand for beginners.

因为我昨天太累,所以没有学汉语。

可是今天我想学习一点,还要洗衣服等。

 

我喜欢猫,也喜欢狗,可是我的家太小。

请问,你的猫都是什么颜色的?

Shelley:我还是喜欢看书。我一年只看四个电影。(四部电影?四场电影?)

我妈妈喜欢看电影。她来看我的时候,我们一起去看电影。

我去看爸爸妈妈的时候,我也跟妈妈一起去看电影。

可是她不喜欢科幻(scifi)电影。

 

Meng Lelan:请问你儿子岁了?他上中学吗?

 

我是 用Linux的ibus拼音输入法  打字  的。

 

Edited. Got confused. Thanks DD.

我喜歡貓,但我家的貓都不大喜歡我,它們喜歡我弟弟。我也喜歡狗,它們看起來可愛,但我討厭它們的氣味。

我愛看電影,現在平均一星期看一至兩套。我都在周末早上去看電影,因為比較便宜。

我打字用Google廣東話或漢語拼音輸入法,今天下載了Google日文輸入法,也挺好用。

以前有一隻灰色的老貓,名字就叫“貓貓”,它18歲時死了。然後養了一隻黑貓和一隻白貓,黑的叫芝麻,白的叫豆腐。豆腐去年死了,現在家裏只有芝麻。

我家人說廣東話,貓們心情好時就聽得懂廣東話。它們說貓話,我聽不懂。

skylee :你家貓的名子很有趣!

 

我沒有養寵物,因為我沒有時間陪它們玩。

 

我打字用電腦的注音輸入法,簡單又方便。

我也觉得Skylee家猫的名字很有意思。

我小时候我们家也有了两只猫。

上个星期五我的同事都想看见日偏食,但是因为天很阴,所以没办法。

大家看见了没有?

星期六天晴了,可是日偏食当然已经结束了。

同事 tóng​shì : colleague, coworker.

日偏食 rì​piān​shí : partial eclispe of the sun.

大家好,

 

我的汉语很差所以我来这儿跟你们聊天儿让你们觉得你们的汉语更好。 我的家没有猫也没有狗。两个月以前我是在我朋友的家看家的 (Kan1jia1 - housesitting). 因为我的朋友有一只猫所以他让我每天给它猫食。 但是它吃以后就要上它的厕所大便(我不知道大便的动词。。。)。 它的大便又多又臭!从那时候开始我决定我不要猫也不要狗。

 

下次见 :P
