      Hello! I applied for CIS to study a master’s program for two years, therefore I also had to make a contract with a Confucius Institute that if I study a master with CIS then I have to work for that institute for 5 years. What happens if they accept my application, but I refuse in the end? (Because of another scholarship opportunity) Does anyone have experience with that? Thanks for any help!

      hi guys,   I saw this word group in a text: 每一个人   Can someone explain me why I have to add the 一 before 个? wouldn't it work if I just write 每个人?   The whole sentence is: 大部分人每天晚上至少应该睡七个小时,但是这个标准 不适合每一个人,有百分之四十的人即使只睡五个小时也很有精神。   Cheers Beo

      Hi   I have received the pre-admission letter from Tsinghua for the English program of Master of architecture. the department only recommends me for the Beijing government scholarship which is spatial scholarship.   Did anyone here get admitted for the same program?

      Hi forum,   Just curious, has anyone come across any recommendation sites for language learners for movies, tv shows or music? I'm thinking of building one but would love to see if anyone has come across one before and if this would be useful to everyone here.

      Here is an image; in this scene two lovers are having sex when the wife of the man calls at the phone, so he answers. The phone call is viewed only by the guy's perspective and that's what he says (all those lines are from him). My english subtitles translate it this way:   "Honey, why are you staying up so late? I'm about to sleep... You mean the blue coat, I know. I'll bring it up to you tomorrow".   Since I'm not sure about this translation I'd be happy if you could please confirm it's correct or either fix it to make it correct. Thanks in advance.

      Here's the dialogue I'm talking about; Line 1 and line 5 are from the same speaker, lines 2,3,4 are from a different speaker. If it might be useful (no clue) this is during a phone call. Thanks for your help!

      Hello everybody here, I´m new in this forum. Here´s my first question:   Although I already know most of the uses of the particle 了 in the following sentence  快春节了,他准备好回家过春节了 I cant get my mind around the last 了.   Can you show me light?

      hey guys,   I'm not entirely sure about the differences between 和, 跟 and 与 .    Example: 很多人害怕与周围的人比较   Why is 与 being used in the sentence above and not 和 or 跟? are all three interchangeably?   Cheers Beo

      Hey everyone,   I would need some quite urgent advice. I had been admitted to study one semester at the Renmin University in Beijing. I got my X2 (short term) - Visa as required, so I was quite content. However then Corona happened and it become unclear, whether the semester would actually be taking place or not. Thus I first travelled to Vietnam. Then I got the message, that the next day the chinese border would close (27th.3). So I rushed over the border, basically thinking that if the semester would be taking place that would be all right and if not I could probably try to sign up at a language school, although I would prefer learning chinese on my own without restrictions of a set town or stuff like that. I was let over the border and am now in Quarantine for 8 more days or so, but after I that do not exactly know what my options are. I understand the X2 thus, that I do not need a residence permit, but I read stuff about “registering your residence at the police station, health checkup”, etc. So my questions are: - Would it be possible to just grab a shared flat or something (or in worst case go to a hostel for some time) and learn there on my own? What exactly would I need to provide to immigration authorities or such? Whom would I contact for that? - If the first does not work, could I just ask a language school to sign me up? I have read, that that would work, if the first school would be fine with that (I imagine they are, since they do not do a semester after all). But could I basically just arrive at the new town and register my residence there, after making stuff clear with my new language school? Or do I still need to tell some people in Beijing my situation and get a permission or something to go somewhere else?     - I read different stuff about staying in a hotel/hostel. My current understanding is as follows: there are some hotels/hostels, who have a specific license to host foreigners. If I stay at a place like that, it will be more convenient, because I will not have to do anything about the police station stuff. I could also go to other hotels/hostels without such license, but than the "register at the local police station stuff" would apply. This is kind of important too me as well, since I (eventually) want to live in a "smaller" part of china, where it might be difficult to find (cheap) hotels with a license.   Thanks a lot in advance   Jona
