Howdy gang, me again, I hope everyone is feeling good today, not sick or tired or feeling depressed. today I am writting to you about learning a new language.
I have been meandering and playing around with learning chinese. I have several apps on my android and a few books helping to do this. what is interesting about this language is how the word structures are just so different.
example, You and I would say, I went to the library yesterday at something o clock, they say it I, yesterday, to the library, at o clock went, something like this, or it is I yesterday, at o clock to the library went, not sure, I am finding it hard to learn. it is a slow process for me. after a year and a half trying to learn it I still cant speak hardly any of it.
I am curious have any of you tried to learn chinese, or korean or some language that is quite different from english or your native language? What helped you to learn it andwhat problems have you had? what is really neat is if you google translate english into chinese it comes up and all you have to do is type your sentence into the box andit translates it into tradition or simplifed characters and I use my pleco camara to translate to pinyin. really cool.
today it is so cold out and light dusting of snow I am like stuck in the house, not feeling well either, kind of feel like I am getting a sinus infection, hopfully just my normal allergies bothering me. So I am looking at my grammar and reading and writting chinese text books I just got a couple of days ago.
anyway here aer some more pictures for you to enjoy.
