Hi Ma li!

I'm not Chinese, but i just love studying Mandarin. I spend at least two hours every day on it learning it. I would also like to learn calligraphy, but in Holland, there aren't many resources for learning Chinese, let go for learning callygraphy.
Thanks God I happen to know the darnest little Chinese bookstore with Chinese books about every item. Huanghe Shudian (Yellow River bookstore) in Amsterdam! *l*

Are you Chinese yourself? Or is Ma Li your english name translated into mandarin? Do you live in China?

Hope to hear from you!

Hi Michalis,
how are you?
thank you for answering to my msg...
No,I am not Chinese but I love Chinese language and culture.
I have been studying it now for about 7 months...I study everyday..I dedicate about 2 hours to it,daily.I can find many resources around here and that's great...
What method do you use to memorize characters and their strokes?I find that to be probably the most difficult thing for me...
Hope to hear from you soon,

Hi Ma Li!

Well, I just call you Ma li! Its nice to hear how you're working on your Chinese. We0re pretty much the samen, hopelessly addicted. :)

I don't find character very hard anymore, coz after a while I found that lot of elemenst within that character are pretty much the same. And I use a nice trick:

I start ginving elements that return a lot names, so when I write a character, they're great reminders. *l* Like for "sea" I would say; sea consists of "liquid" and "mother". And for "cat" I would say: cat consisits of "animal", followed by "grass" and below that "field". You should try it! :)

I have more difficulties with memorizing the tones. :) I always mix the up! And I find it diffiult to pronnounce the "shi" "si" and "zhi" words. Coz they shoud be pronounced like a "z" rather then as "i".

What technique do you use to learn Chinese? Wouldn't you agree that mandarin sounds much better and more beautiful than cantonese? :)
What do you think is quite difficult about Chinese? How do you train your pronunciation?

Good luck!

Marianna,

Hi I am an American trying to learn Mandarin Chinese. You seem to have an incredible enthusiasm for the language. Can you give me some tips on how to get started?

hello, Michalis, please contact me if you'd like to meet a person in reality
who speaks Mandarin Chinese - because I am a Chinese and I am also

Maybe it is really difficult for a people who comes from west country to learn Chinese.But if you study enough hard, your Chinese level will be improved greatly.if so, you will find that the Chinese culture,especially the classic culture,which differs from wester one very much, is full of charming.
