  2. I have an extended summer holiday this year and plan to make the most of it in regards to Chinese learning. First off, I'll set some goals, for what I hope to have accomplished by the end of summer (the start of September). Then, I'll outline some more granular details, such as what I plan to do each day and how I intend to achieve my goals. This post will help me stay accountable and serve as a space to go back and compare my progress to (throughout and at the end of the summer). Summer Statistics Time: June 11, 2021 - September 1, 2021 Length: 82 days Notes: Roughl

  3. Posters like this have started to appear all over our college campus as COVID vaccinations are rolled out to students and staff. 我们一起打疫苗 一起苗苗苗苗苗 I presume there's some kind of cultural reference in 苗苗苗苗苗... is it from a children's song or something?

  4. So to get going again I am starting a new challenge. I've had a 3 week break so it's time to consolidate and build up areas that I did not focus on before. I will also be beginning Korean this month but real slow. I know my target speeds are ambitious... but that's what makes it a challenge Challenge 2: Reading and writing level up! handwriting and typing all HSK3 600 characters in 1 month -> target speed of 40 characters per minute and reading well, to read an HSK 3 book by month end -> target speed of 40 characters per minute Today I was gathering ma

  5. It took me quite a while to knock these off since I only did one lesson a week with a teacher on this book. (I'm also busy working my way through Chinese Made easier - book 1 and 2 done, halfway through book 3.) I feel a sense of accomplishment having stuck with the BASIC series consistently and finishing the Spoken, Written and Practice books. I think it's a fantastic set of books and found lots that has been useful in real life. I also found it to contain quite a bit of language that I haven't come across in other places and even enjoyed some of the more "dated" vocab. The books ( especially

  6. I heard it in: 同舟共济创造美好未来——在亚太经合组织工商领导人峰会上的主旨演讲 (2018年11月17日) Jointly Charting a Course Toward a Brighter Future – Keynote Speech at the APEC CEO Summit 然而,不是所有故事都这么美好,人类也有过惨痛教训。上世纪发生的第二次世界大战,让人类陷入了滔天浩劫。就在离我们不远的地方,曾经爆发第二次世界大战期间惨烈的珊瑚海战役、瓜达尔卡纳尔战役。今天,这片海面已经波澜不惊,但我们不能忘却历史上的风风雨雨。“明鏡所以照形,古事所以知今。”我们回顾历史,是要以史为鉴,不让历史悲剧重演。面对历史大潮,如何才能为世界经济发展把握正确方向?如何才能为国际社会找到有效治理思路?这里,我愿提出以下主张。 my English version: "Like looking in a mirror, the past can be looked upon to understand the present"

  7. Today 3 hours. Total time put into prep = 96 hours over 32 days (had 5 lazy days) So I put it an hour of vocab and another 2 hours of Revision videos, but was totally finished. HSK 2 went well but was slow for some reason in the reading section so I missed three questions HSK 3 ... well let's just say I was examined... and found wanting. Results are out in 10 days time.. as for today, sleep! I can safely as the first challenge HSK 1 in 40 hours was met and is easy and doable The upgraded challenge of HSK2 in 80 hours (cumulative) I'm sur

  10. The other day, my teacher gave me homework to write about the new tea tray I bought. Here's my writing followed by her corrections: 让我介绍一下我新买的茶盘。因为我南方家里的茶盘比较大,所以我买了一个小的更适合我北京房间。我选择这种茶盘的过程是这样。我两年以前去广东北边的潮州古城旅游。那时候我很多次看过老人坐在走道上喝茶,聊天。他们用的茶盘很简单。它的样子是圆形的,不太大。有的人用陶瓷的,有的人用不锈钢的。几天前我在淘宝上看了看。我找到一些从潮州来自功夫茶盘。最后我选择了一个12英寸(30厘米),白色的。它要花差不多一百块钱包括快递费。今天早上茶盘到了。我很开心。我觉得这个茶盘挺好看的。我现在能在家里喝茶像潮州老人一样。 With corrections(my wrong sentence in parenthesis): 让我介绍一下我新买的茶盘。因为我南方家里的茶盘比较大,所以我买了一个小的更适合我北京房间。我选择这种茶盘的过程是这样。我两年以前去广东北边的潮州古城旅游。那时候我很多次看过老人坐在走道上喝茶,聊天。他们用的茶盘很简单。它的样子是圆形的,不太大。(他们用的茶盘很简单,圆的,不太

  11. 天边的额吉 seems like a really odd name for a brand, possibly something to do with the Mongolian connection...? Anyone know the story behind this?
