biggrin.gif Greetings ... and 恭喜发财 Happy Chinese New Year!

Following is a link to an excellent English/Chinese character dictionary ... if you click on the pronunciation link following the character it will open up your Windows Media program and say the word for you. An excellent tool for learning proper pronunciation...

This is one of my favorite Mandarin Chinese language websites ... I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

A gift ... enjoy!

Chinese philosophy ... (and a daily televised program in Hong Kong & China) ... "Language Learned = Friends Earned" ... a "very" good program ... wish we had it in the US!

My wife is Chinese ... she says it will take me 7 years to learn Chinese ... I think she's wrong ... I think it's going to take the rest of my life! LOL! However, fortunately our sons take after their Mother and are much smarter than me and better looking too thank God! They hopefully will someday be as fluent as their 妈妈 (mama).

I read online that if a person can recognize 3000 Chinese characters he/she can read a Chinese news paper ok, to read one fluently one would need to be able to recognize 6000 characters. Considering there are over 15000 characters Ive always wondered How long it would take to sing a Chinese alphabet song?

WOW! I might need this life and the next ...

It's nice to meet you too. Welcome to Matazone! smile.gif
*carefully duct-tapes ezfriday to the ceiling* Fear not, you'll fall down soon.
I sort of understand what you mean, and lots of people here are ready to talk if you want. Feel free to poke me if you have questions about something.
