I'm Chinese-American but I can't read Chinese characters (learning avidly right now, though)... do I count :D?

I'm an epic failure. I clicked the thread only because the first symbol in the thread title looks exactly like the symbol on the supersuit for "The Greatest American Hero" that starred William Katt back in the 80's.

大家好!

大家好!

很久没有看过这个forum阿! 我找到了这个thread的时候, 觉得真了不起,竟然在AW会有汉语的discussion.

不过, 先说明: 我的书面中文不好,而且我不会说普通话,而只会说广东话, 但是书面中文就差不多阿!(我只是写不好!)

Another Morning, 你好! 你问了这里有没有人现在在中国, 我可以答我正在! 我看,你现在已经离开这个国家,吗?所以,我只是想问一下,你以前在中国主在哪儿?


Essie: Curiously, what do you mean by "of Chinese extraction"?


Take care,
Snitchcat.

啊,我没去过武汉,在那儿有什么特别要注意,呢?

我不教英语,我在展览行业做市场信息富经理,不过不是参展商的,是展览主办单位的。

在武汉你要注意小偷。有些地方买东西的时候你要学会讲价。

武汉的天气,在夏天太热了,在冬天太冻了。

我是美国人。你呢?在武汉你可以尝尝热干面!

我喜欢夏天,怎么热也可以,但是冬天其中最好是下雪! 很久没有看过雪啊,有时候想着它不过我不喜欢那么低的temperature。 哈哈哈! 我忘记了那个字的拼音,而且很懒,不想看字典。

除了买东西之外,在武汉有什么其他活动呢?

我是华人,不过不在中国大。

你的中文很不错!

luckytranslation 你好!谢谢你的compliment! 欢迎来AW!

从头再看过这条thread我发现 你也是华人啊! 真非常高兴在这儿可以认识 你。 请问你现在主在哪儿?而且你喜欢写那一个genre或者只会写non-fiction ? 并且你会说那种语言比较多呢?写呢?我只是很curious , 你不想回答没问题。

啊,忘记做一样东西:guten tag! wie gehen Sie ? I can still read some german after all these years,aber in siebzehn oder zwanzig Jahren habe ich kein Deutsch gesprochen,also现在我的汉语比较好一点儿 ,啊。

And for those just learning or can only speak Chinese for the moment , bravo for tackling such a challenging language!

其实,我想问大家,你们说中文的时候会说哪一个坊言呢?该是北京的普通话吗?还是广东话,呢?

Just curious: when you all speak Chinese, which dialect are you speaking? Should be Beijing putonghua, right? How about Cantonese?

嘻嘻,没問題,我也看得懂TChi,但因為我不喜歡使用ciangjie或者其他類似的工具所不會打繁體中文字,不過很好這個galaxy tab 有手寫中文的工能。hmm , 我想我剛剛寫錯字了,而且我這些字句應該比較多像廣東話的口語啊!

如果不懂我寫了甚麼,没問題,還有其他方法communicate. 但現在很累啦,大家晚安!

啊,almost forgot: Wistfullylinda, 妳好!歡迎來AW!

No formal Chinese learning here. I picked it up when I moved here, then taught myself to read both Simplified and Traditional Chinese. It's a good thing I live near the border -- the amount I spend on books would take me into bankruptcy if I did all my book shopping here! Lol.

I spent almost four years in China. 我会说中文一点点。I've forgotten quite a bit since moving back to the states, but I'm trying to get back into my studying habits. When I have time I attend Mandarin Monday meetups in NYC.
