"my name is Ally. I am 14 years old. There are six people in my family." I don't know the next sentence, but I think it says "I have been taking Chinese lessons for four years"? "I like books, swimming, and [I know this character but forget what it means]. My favorite colors are purple and yellow"?? "[something about Snickers] I like [more characters I learned and forgot]. What about you?"

Laurel Chandler (laurelchandler) | 19 comments I speak Chinese (traditional). Ally, 我覺得妳的中文很好!


Annie (Sad Water Bottle) (alyzzp) | 74 comments I speak Mandarin...but I can't write and I can only read a little :(


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

I just don't. I tried but I can't.

Oh you mean read?


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

LOL anything


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

my accent never happened, and I just can't memorize written characters and pronunciations.
This is why I failed out of Mandarin classes -

Oh...that's too bad. I can't memorize the characters either, but since my mom speaks Mandarin I get a lot of listening/speaking practice.


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

ohhh that makes sense. Both my parents are Indonesian so I basically grew up with that. I can't read or write it very well, but I also don't consider English to be my first language since I didn't learn it primarily.

That's the same way for me!


message 22: by Sofia, Bookish Duck (new)

Sofia (sofloaf) | 5001 comments If I listen closely enough, I can vaguely figure out what's going on. But that's only for simple conversations. I can't speak it or write it.


message 23: by Sofia, Bookish Duck (new)

Sofia (sofloaf) | 5001 comments I used to take Mandarin classes, but all the kids there already knew how to speak it because their parents actively used it at home. Oh, and I don't have the accent, so it's difficult.


message 24: by ally (new)

ally (celaena_coin) | 435 comments That's still really cool though

message 46: by Poet (new)

Poet (sweetest_prose) I’m studying Chinese and once embarrassed myself beyond imagination in front of the entire class. Ready to hear the story?
Ok. I had a question. I asked my teacher... “Qingwen...?”
THE TONES, REMEMBER THE TONES dear me!
I had asked her “May I (kiss) you?” Instead of “May I (ask) you.”
HOLY SH*T ALL I WANTED WAS TO GET A DRINK OF WATER OH WHY WHY WHYYYY!!!!
And that is the story of my forever-remembered shame and embarrassment in Chinese class. REMEMBER THE TONES, I tell you!
