Chinese feeling - Looking at this photo, do you remember Chinese at once? If you answer "yes", and I can say I make it.

China now is becoming stronger than before. I have heard about that some countries people start learning Chinese several years. Do you learning too? Whatever you think, you can share with us here. Welcome to express you different views.

I am a Chinese and I have learned Chinese since young. So it is like you ask me what I feel about air. Is it possible to describe what air feels like?

As you know, China is quite large in its size. Most of my time, I live in Guangzhou. If you ask me about the air, I will tell you that is too bad. Just like some chinese, perhaps your chinese course is not so good too. Then I want to know about your chinese language level, and whether you will learn it further.

For me,chinese language is not only wide spoken,historical,but it's also beautiful. I love the traditional poems and literatures a lot.It had a strict format,yet,with diverting style and characters from various poet,and impressive meaning and messages. and i enjoy using the laguage too.

Few people like the chinese poems or literatures,because they are too different to understand,even for the chinese people.

I found chinese language a very difficult to learn and understand. I am staying here in China for almost two years and my chinese language isn't good enough to communicate well. I am staying in Kunshan wherein people speak in different dialects. My colleagues can't speak english well, so nobody can be able to teach me chinese because we can't understand each other, so what to do? just help myself. We are three filipinos here in my company and i am really getting crazy everyday not having anyone to talk to. Communication is really a hard point. Sometimes, i just show them what i want them to do for me. In email communications they use chinese, so i just use translator via website in able for me to understand. But language variance isn't a hindrance in having friends, i have chinese friend but we speak each other seldom, we use word by word and most of the time we looks like deaf and mute..we just use sign language and graffiti..lol!

I learnt the Chinese language when I was very young. My mother made it a mandatory for my siblings and I to know at least some characters in Chinese language. Although now, I speak mainly English, I still take Chinese language seriously. I can read and recognise many words in the language. Can you believe that I can easily translate articles from Chinese langauge to English in less than 5 hours?

I can not believe your chinese is so good.Because the chinese language is too hard to study.

I am not chinese and not from China. But i would like to learn your language. So apart of english this is the language i want to learn.. moreover.. this language can offer me a bigger oppurtunity in life. If i am YOU then i will be proud of the language... i am learning informally now from my friends.. :)

Chinese isnot my mother tongue. So, i started to learn chinese in the course. I found it so boring and difficult. BEcause Chinese not commonly used in Indonesia. Then, i went to Singapore and found out Chinese was very essential for global relationship. SO, i started to learn seriously. And now i have learned about 4 years then. I think Chinese becomes very important nowadays. The most difficult parts of the language are pronounciation, letters, and grammars.

I don't study languages any more. When I was younger I had to take foreign language in college. [I'm American] I was terrible at it. It was the hardest subject for me. So I can't imagine that at sixty-five years of age I'll be learning a new language of any kind. But if I were a young person in college now who was studying for a degree in business finance or some related degree I might take Chinese because so much business is going there. I don't expect to ever get to China myself.

Nothing is impossible in this period.Maybe you will have a chance to visit china soon.And learning is nothing related to the age,which is many persons' view.If you do not know chinese language,it does not matter.Because no matter you go to which city,you can find many people help you,and they can speak English well.

I'm learning Chinese language in conversation with my mom and daddy. Since I was born in Indonesia, so now I better using Indonesian and English than Chinese language. I have no difficulties in grammar, but I really have difficulties in vocabularies :D So many words I don't know and hard to remember this time. I can't write either, although I've been in Mandarin courses, but I only can write a lil bit, but it's achievement I think :D because seems hard to know all of the characters. Wo xiang shuo yi dian dian hai ke yi :)

Yupe, I can't write those words in Chinese characters, because I always forget how to write properly, maybe some easy character like ren, da, xiao, ni hao ma, etc, and also my own name, I still can remember it :) Wo de zung guo hua hai bu da hao, dan shi wo hai ke yi du pinyin. Pinyin zen de bang mang wo hen duo, wo hai ke yi man man xue, dan shi hen duo hua wo dou wang zi le :D Hope I still can learning by doing, I think more practise will be remain me more about the vocabularies.
