I just looked at it again and they're adding stuff daily to it, I guess. I hope Geland sees this!

I've been learning Chinese, and due to my monotone voice, its a little harder for me to get the tones right (every sound has up to 4 tones representing each tone as a different word).

But the written language seems to be easier, nothing different then English, all a bunch of symbols, not proper phonetic spelling. But some news paper titles are quite funny:

One that sounds ok, as a literal translation.

"Hu Jintao attended opening ceremony and delivered important speech."

Verses something like this:

"Arrive Ukrainian start process national affair visiting"

or

"Study type party organization learn what"

Laughing

Now now, don't confuse us Laughing

I copied the traditional characters to a note pad and got rid of the phonetic spelling and English, the moment the girlfriend say the first two sentences she laughed as she knew what the rest was to be.
