So where'd you learn to speak Mandarin?

Chinese

I began learning Mandarin at uni. I got through 1 unit with a credit and had to take a semester off to gear up for more - I don't do failure well . I've got 4 units in total. It's a fascinating language, really. Hard though, as there's technically 2 languages to learn (and I reckon that's cheating!! ), but really fun.

Best on HTDAAB if you ask me. Unlike the rest, it actually achieves something close to atmosphere.

I don't know how you cope.

But I'm looking forward to this Phail session, whenever it happens in the next decade ...

I took Japanese in high school, and it's my minor in college, but I've now had to take a full year off of it because of scheduling difficulties.

I'm terrified to go back now :shudder:

Oh, awesome!

It's ridiculous to learn, what with the speaking and writing and the sheer complexity of both, and the fact that one written word can mean several things and one spoken word may in fact be several written words, and so on.

The best way to learn it though, I reckon, is by immersion - I like to watch Asian films with, then without subtitles when I feel like catching up on my Chinese. Plus, the films usually involve martial arts, which I do too, so that's always a bonus.

Yeah, wait till I get my hat and trenchcoat look going next week... I'll look like someone out of the Prohibition era. An Asian member of the Italian mob maybe?

Yeah, Jap's equally complicated, if not worse.

You better wear this on Tuesday. Actually, is there a concert on Tuesday?
