      Do you know where I can see or buy English videos with Chinese subtitles or Chinese videos with English subtitles so I can learn with these videos also instead of watching non Chinese videos?   The content doesn't matter.

      May I know how should we fill in Foreigner Physical Examination Form, for China scholarship application? I know that we should ask physician or doctors to fill in the form, but I'm unsure, can I find a clinic (either public or private) for the medical checkup? Is it valid?

      Someone's snuck some dance vocab into what I believed to be an entirely different topic - does anyone know of any relevant glossaries online? Stuff like 起泛儿 and 法儿 as seen here.   I'll do the best I can with what I can find in the meantime, it'd due in shortly.

      Hello, all, I'm not fluent in Chinese; I know how to write and read all but a select few characters. Because of a chess variant project that I'm partaking in, I would benefit from help by one who might be much more proficient. I'm trying to find a single character that means "Queen"/"Empress"/"female authoritarian"/"nation's maternal leader"/"sovereign female ruler", one which contains the sovereign ruler radical, "王". Because the character will become one of my chess variant pieces, it would need to be a single character. ("女王" or "王後" won't fit into the tiny space of a chess piece!) With that being said, I created the following hypothetical yet possibly real(?) Chinese characters. I hope I don't come off too comical or naive. Do these following actually exist? Does something similar to them exist? https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/ag182/LonderDonder3105/Hypothetical_samples.png?&fit[/img] If they don't exist, what Chinese character does, that contain the sovereign ruler radical? On a tangent, has the character for Pheonix, "凰", ever been an idiom or metaphor for Queen? Thanks greatly for your help.

      In many languages there is an opinion how well you speak the language either you are educated or less educated, from illiteracy to literacy and so on. Then there are different variants in the language patterns and different styles when people talk, some are more acceptable than others. The other day I was in a forum where a person from Taiwan mentioned the prejudice people have to those who doesn't speak the correct 國語 because they have either a heavy accent or not the correct pronunciation. I wonder if this is the same in mainland China and why the correct pronunciation from the north is considered better than other pronunciations from different regions in Taiwan and China. Any thoughts?

      Download documents from Baidu Wenku 百度文库, Docin.com 豆丁网 and similar sites.    冰点下载器 - fish.exe - preserves formatting, including tables - exports to PDF and TXT - works on all the sites and documents I've tried so far (not that many)    Homepage (probably): http://www.bingdian001.com/  - might need a VPN? Also available from other questionable sites around the Chinese internet so be cautious.    I've also included the version (June 2020) that I downloaded (but can't remember from where) which I've used for two months+ and seems to be free of malware.   idocdown_3.2.12.rar   Some screenshots

      Hey guys, I've been tyring to get a copy of the Hanyu Da Cidian electronic/CD edition but finding it a little hard to track down an easy click and ship option. I'd rather not send email off to publishers and await responses. I just wanna click a button and buy it.   Also if anybody knows if there's a demo version available that would be great, its known for janky compatibility issues and I was preferably going to run it under wine, as opposed to running it on a VM which is less ideal, so I would like to test it before I shell out ~$250.

      I wrote some Python code that searches through your Pleco history for words you look up repeatedly. Find the GitHub repo here.   Example use case: Let's say you encounter the word 馘 (guó, to cut off the left ear of someone you've slain) while reading a short story. You gleefully share your discovery on the word of the day thread, but you don't bother memorizing it because you have no plans to go into the bounty hunting business.   Years later, you happen to encounter 馘 again (you should probably stop reading so many grisly 武侠 novels). You don't remember that you've seen it previously, but this code notifies you that you have. You decide to memorize it, having spared yourself the mortifying embarrassment of posting it to the word of the day thread again.

      Good day friends,   I am Yijun, a Chinese and English teacher in China, based in city Yantai. I was graduated from University of Melbourne and lived in Australia for 5 years, which is my overseas experiences. After I went back to China, me and a few other friends started business for tutoring spoken Chinese. We started from Korea market, and now we have thousands of students. From last month, we start to expand our service to worldwide and hopefully to help more learners with their spoken Chinese.   Now I am looking for volunteers to try on our 1-on-1 tutoring service for free ( 1 free trial + 8 more free lessons for 1 month).  There are only a few requirements: 1. You are able to speak basic Chinese sentences, know 拼音, tones, and basic expressions (let's say at least 2-3 months learning experiences. 2. You have stable internet connection, use Chrome browser or Safari ( so you can use our own-designed Web Lesson Room). 3. Passionate about learning Chinese. How to take the class: Please comment below or inbox me if you are interested. Sign up on our website, and follow WeChat official account. Add me on WeChat for more info: Breakinthewalls   My goal is to let more foreign people master their Chinese skill, so that they can see the real modern China, understand China's culture, benefit the most from Chinese learning, and meanwhile the Chinese people will have more chances to touch with outside world.   Thanks for reading, and you have a good day!😀   Yours, Yijun
