    Spoonfed Chinese

    What’s the best way to start using this? I am not a beginner so ... I’d suspend a bunch of the easier cards? Advice appreciated and will feedback with own experiences.

    2019 CSC Scholarships

    @Eyoel Well, on April 8 I believe. Did you apply through university? Type B @CubePhil Thank you! You should email them. And yeah, we have to wait till July or maybe August
  7. In Pleco export it is possible to put a definition if not present in flascards. Pleco original definition is too long for me, so I'm using the CC-CEDICT dictionary for short definitions (HERE a 2013 version). I change "[" and "]" with "Tab" and "Nothing" using a simple text editor (usually I use Notepad++, but any editor with global serch&replace feature works well). I use editore for deleting last blank lines too.
  8. People on the internet seem to agree it's mo. https://www.zhihu.com/question/55616610 https://zhidao.baidu.com/question/359448449.html https://zhidao.baidu.com/question/1736291804101377907.html Maybe it's similar to 模样, where many people say moyang instead of muyang.

    Great — a bit like a Chinese-forums X HelloTalk mash-up meet-up And my first ever time eating 北京烤鴨... thanks @Flickserve for bringing your friends along.
  10. I have a question about the pronunciation of the word 蓦然 in the sentence 蓦然想起一件事. 现代汉语规范词典 says 蓦 is pronounced mò, adding: 注意 不读mù. A native speaker from Sichuan disagreed and advised me to say mùrán, because “No one says mòrán.” Which pronunciation is most commonly used?

    Spoonfed Chinese

    Glad to know it works! Life got in the way but I'm on the process of moving from Skritter to Inkstone (if I manage to make it work) and nearly forgot about Spoonfed so thanks for the reminder!
  12. @sevinjshabanova No my status is still in process. When did yours change?
  13. Hi! Thanks for the help but I'm not sure how to do this automatically: Do I need to manually input "definition" when there's none? Thanks again!

    Taiwan Visa while in mainland China

    "A question should not be asked. By common sense, China recognise TW as a province, so how do you get VISA within same country?" Nothing wrong with asking the question. Visas for Taiwan have long been granted in Hong Kong. And for many years, at least, Mainland visas applied for in Hong Kong were often processed and issued in Shenzhen. They say 签发地广东. (Those issued in Hong Kong say 签发地香港.)

    Taiwan Visa while in mainland China

    A question should not be asked. By common sense, China recognise TW as a province, so how do you get VISA within same country? For TW , it is quite complicated. Of course you never get Mainland VISA there, the identity TW people thought of themself changes over time...make it more complicated...Basically, in my own opinion, the Big boss in TW now is a Japanese, not Chinese.

    so many years not linger around in Sanlitun. Anyone had experienced the curfew toward Sanlitun in a cold winter? Hope you guys would insist on this meet up , so I might have the chance to join in several years later.cheers!
  19. Yesterday
  20. Done. For future reference, it's usually better to hit 'Report Post' rather than @ing a specific admin user, as then anyone on the admin team can fix the problem.
  21. That blurry image, it comes from where? Looks too blurry to be a captcha.
  22. Once you have bleary old eyes and 80 centimeters to filter out the noise, it's pretty clear actually...
  23. I have in my windows 10 pc a version of inkstone that is running in native windows. The executables comes from https://www.dropbox.com/s/uupgyq5xizpkas5/Inkstone.zip?dl=1 Shaunak's link. The version is 0.1.0, not the last 0.1.4 Is it possible to upgrade the windows app? Thank you, Furio
  24. Answer to https://www.chinese-forums.com/forums/topic/51989-a-short-list-of-resources-for-studying-chinese/?do=findComment&comment=453876 Dear xinoxanu x, As Mikelove said, the format is: Simpl|TAB|Trad|TAB|Numb.Pinyin|TAB|definition So, from Pleco file, find-and-replace every "[" into a tab and every "]" into nothing. Example 成群[成群] cheng2qun2 1 in groups 2 large numbers of 3 grouping is changed in 成群 成群 cheng2qun2 1 in groups 2 large numbers of 3 grouping Tab+definition is compulsive, so 街角[街角] jie1jiao3 (no tab+definition) is changed in 街角 街角 jie1jiao3 definition delete last blank line 109 Furio
  25. Hey everyone! I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this question but I will give it a go! I am planning to study at a Mandarin language center next summer (2020) in Taiwan, Taipei. I am looking for programs that last for 3 months during the summer period (beginning of June to late August approx.). I am wondering if anyone have any recommendations? From other forums online I gather National Chengchi University, Chinese Language Division Language Center (CLD) National Taiwan University and National Taiwan Normal University (MTC) are good. Which of these would you recommend or if you have any other recommendations? For reference I have studied Mandarin for a year now full-time and will continue to study till next summer. So I am looking for more advanced classes (and connected to unis of course). I'd appreciate any input!
  26. I received the same e-mail today. Going to sign up soon as I really want to get into SJTU and hope that CSC approves my application by mid July. Good luck MissA and hopefully both of us can get in I applied via the UK Chinese embassy (type A) and now considering withdrawing my EU Window application as there is more certainty in my UK application.
  27. I see languages like working out at the gym. You're only as strong as your weakest link. I also believe everything should be balanced. I would understand if someone said "I'm pretty fluent when it comes to speaking and listening, but my reading and writing aren't too great." But for someone to say they are fluent just based on listening to native materials, I'd be skeptical. Of course, being able to understand native materials is already a fantastic level when it comes to language learning, people just have to careful how they use the word 'fluent'.
