Surprise!

wo xihuan zhong wen ....

Chinese is one of the last things I ever thought I would get into. Life goal #4 is to die fluent in Japanese. That's when they decided to offer Chinese at school.

And I'm in love. I always looked at Chinese from the outside and put it in the category of Languages I Don't Want to Learn (Italian, Basque, Swahili). But getting thrown into it not only excited me about Chinese but reinvigorated my thirst for languages.

I can't wait to keep going. I can't wait to know what I'm looking at, and to speak it.

I am interested to know if anybody else is learning it, likes it, or is interested in it. I would like to meet some people who are interested in studying Chinese.

keyi xie / shuo 'zhongwen hen hao' chinese seems to be a lot more precise and assumes you dont need a pronoun or a verb like 'to be'<br />
<br />
wo xue zhongwen kuai liang nian le.<br />

Get a Chinese name as well.<br />
<br />
Wo de zhongwen minzi shi 'Mowen'<br />
<br />
It means Mo = ink and wen = language which is kind of strange as I write poetry.<br />

I am not sure if I said that all right, feel free to correct. (What I tried to say Chiinese is my hobby this year. Because I am an acupuncture student, therefore knowing Chinese is very good.)<br />
Basically, I am studying to be an acupuncturist. I started studying Mandarin in September, because I think that it will help me to be able to understand acupuncture better, and to perhaps be able to read a lot of the classic texts that are not yet translated, or even if they are, to be able to read them in their truist form. In addition I know that for my degree I will eventually have to take several courses in "medical Chinese". I think that I will ultimately gain a better understanding of that if I know the basics and foundations of Mandarin. Ultimately, I would like to learn Cantonese as well.<br />

Since I started studying Zhongwen, I have completely fallen in love with it. I study it as a hobby, I study it above and beyond what is required for the class, and choose to study it whenever I have a moments free time.<br />
I love reading and writing in Hanzi. It is so soothing and meditative.<br />

Anyway, btw, I am knew here to Experience Project, and this is my very first post. So nice to meet you all. It is good to see other people are enjoying learning Chinese too.

hello, I can share some Chinese topics, if you like.
I am native Chinese.

I wish I'd learned it too but I got to master Arabic for now. There are so many Chinese all over the world and they are united by "Mandarin" though there are many, many other dialects. Good luck to you!

wow! i'm v. impressed. is it crazy-difficult? i learnt chinese for like 7 weekends when i was younger - didnt get far, cos my 'rents weren't that crazy about it. we're viet, you see! :) let me know how it goes :)

Wo chu sheng zai Zhong Guo! Je parle Francais aussi! Ah, I love languages... Swedish FTW!

Wo yie xihuan zhong wen! J'aime le francais aussi. But I'm not quite fluent in either language. =P It's so awesome to see others who are so enthusiastic about learning a language!
