    你們大家怎麽樣練中文?自己看書啊?


    Gah, I dislike Tradational Chinese they're so hard to read! And probably even harder to write.

    I'm from Singapore and starting speaking Chinese since I was young. Well Chinese and English lessons started since kindergarden over here all the way until Junior College. So that means I've 12 official years of studying Chinese in government schools and like 4 years of exposure when I'm young (kindergarden and all).

    There're 3 major exams we take over here at the of age 12 (PSLE), 16(O'Levels) and 18 (AO Levels).

    Anyway I think watching dramas, listening to the radio, speaking to friends do help in learning any language. It's the exposure.

    I learnt how to read + write chinese by... reading newspapers, books and watching TV with subtitles image I also used to copy out chinese lyrics. Or maybe it was because I moved to Hong Kong and was forced to learn? Hmm..

    I could read like most of it. Actually, now that I think about it, I just realize "tsai" is "zai"
    I just couldn't read the last part..."tsue" totally threw me off image
    That's the main reason why I'm taking mandarin courses. Or else I could be learning korean. God I hate how I brought myself up in the past. Wasted so much time focusing on english when I could be focusing on chinese AND english and still end up with the same english stuffs.

    Although...chinese class doesn't really get you to read/write more chinese. You probably forget it afterwards.

    I'm learning chinese by watching chinese commercials =D


    Tsue is Xue2 學..guessing from context.

    Japanese uses some form of simplified, but it's different. Some of them are different from both traditional and simplified (like the word KURO, or black) and some are traditional (they don't simplify the "yan2" radical, sry - I don't have Chinese on this computer). Some have different meanings (actually, most are).

    I'll try to find a site that explains this with examples, but when I have these exams done with.

    テニスの王子

    Did they have a stroke beside the 王 like in 国?
    Cause if they did, then I could understand.

    EDIT: guess not.

    Here are some examples of Japanese Kanji:

    国- Chinese Simplified
    誰- Chinese Traditional
    遅- Neither
    黒- Neither
    書- Different Meaning than in Chinese

    It isn't possible for Japanese people (who don't know Chinese) to make sentences of pure Kanji. The grammatical parts of sentences like particles and topic/object/subject markers are never written in Kanji. Also, verbs and adjectives 99.9999% of the time are followed by Japanese charcters.

    (in regards to my previous post... 言 is not simplified in Kanji when as a radical like in simplified Chinese; 请 vs. 請)

    Seedling.

    But it depends how you use it, cause I'm looking at my dictionary right now and it's got various definitions depending on how you use it in context.
