    Confucius Institute Scholarship 2019

    doesn't the semester usually start at the beginning of the month? If I understand this complicated calendar correctly, it is the case for Sichuan University: http://www.scu.edu.cn/index/fw/syxx/xl.htm
  3. Today
  4. The application says: Hanban will complete the scholarship review and publish the results three months before enrollment of the scholarship winners. This means it could be from now on till mid June, we are all hoping it could be today or tomorrow but i guess the more realistic thing would be during June. About the interview who wrote you?? It was the university you have chosen? And when did they told you to have the interview? From what i read interviews have been before reaching Stage4 , but if they asked you for a interview (Even if you are already in stage 4), would be good for you to do it, probably they wanna know a little bit more of every student they are accepting. Not all university asks for interviews.

    Taiwan Visa while in mainland China

    Colombians are eligible to apply for a single-entry 30-day evisa to Taiwan. Be sure you apply using the official site on the gov.tw domain, not one of the copycat sites that Google brings up. https://www.boca.gov.tw/cp-220-1834-036fb-2.html If there's an issue, they want more documents for example, you might be directed to a consular mission for a visit; don't know how that would work if you're on the Mainland, though.
  6. Thank you both! It's finally working
  7. No, you don't. Step 1: Open your .txt file in Notepad++; press "Ctrl + H". Step 2: In the dialog box, change "Search Mode" from "Normal" to "Regular expression". Step 3: In the field "Find what", type "\[(.+?)\]\t" (without quotation marks); in the field "Replace with", type "\t\1\t" (without quotation marks); click "Replace All". Step 4: In the field "Find what", type "^([^\t]+\t[^\t]+\t[^\t]+)$" (without quotation marks); in the field "Replace with", type "\1\tNO DEF" (without quotation marks); click "Replace All". Step 5: Change "Search Mode" back to "Normal"; click "Close". Step 6: Go to menu: Edit > Line Operations > Remove Empty Lines. Step 7: Save your file. Done.

    Spoonfed Chinese

    I like to start it like I start all of my Chinese materials. Go hard for a week, then slowly fizzle out to nothing. Truly live up to the 虎头蛇尾 method of learning I've become to familiar with. Ha! But in all seriousness, I still use it every other day or so. It's usually a time killer when I'm stuck in a queue or in a taxi. I suspended a bunch of cards at the beginning, then just started going through the sentences. I like reading graded readers, but it's frustrating to start a page when you only have 5 minutes to spare, so I usually read when I can sit down for a good half hour with a cup of tea. I just use this deck as a gap filler during the day. It definitely helps with retaining sentence patterns.

    Taiwan Visa while in mainland China

    Assume no cheeky visa on arrival option?

    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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.

    Beijing Chinese-Forums Meet-Up 2019 (yes 2019)

    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.
  17. 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!
  19. @sevinjshabanova No my status is still in process. When did yours change?
  20. 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.)

    What is the best payment method for short-term stays?

    how short are you talking about? if you are going there for at least 1 semester, i think its better for you to spend a few hours to make a local chinese bank account, and connect it to your wechat or alipay account. why? because its too risky to use cash in china nowadays, especially if your face doesnt look like chinese, they mostly will give you fake money, or they simply dont bring any cash. but i heard if you have apple pay, you can use it too in china, but i never try it before. using credit card is actually one of the solutions. using atm machine in china with your foreign bank account will charge you more money, and in my experience, it doesnt always work, you can try open a chinese bank account in your country, like (ICBC, BOC, CCB, etc), put money in it, and you can withdraw anytime anywhere you want in china.

    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.

    Beijing Chinese-Forums Meet-Up 2019 (yes 2019)
