who here studies Chinese here? if so, who is addicted to it?
i do as prep for HSK3. Not addicted but daily practice is really helpful
The HSK is a standardised proficiency test for non-native Chinese speakers that you can use to show your level of Chinese proficiency (a bit like TOEFL). So HSK3 would be the third level of the test.
I love Chinese very much! I'm probably addicted to it. But I won't really use addicted to describe, I would probably say that I enjoy learning Chinese and love practicing Chinese.
I have learned Chinese for 5 years but my Chinese still isn't that good enough. But I still want to try my best and learn more. I might need to practice more often^-^~
I've been studying chinese for a year now. I'm about 70% through the duolingo tree. I'm also on my 3rd semester of formal courses through one of the community colleges in my city, and I complement my learning with other apps like HelloChinese, DuChinese and Pleco. Im also going to China for a month soon to study chinese and be immersed in the language. Im hoping to be at an intermediate level this year. Chinese is fun and it's such an interesting language to learn!
I've learnt it casually on and off for just over a decade after living in Mainland China for a couple of years, but I've never actively studied it in an educational setting. I'd love to work towards a qualification at some point.
I just started but have not done any skills yet, By the way, you posted this topic 3 times (I am pretty sure this was a glitch on Duolingo's end).
This is exactly how I felt about Chinese when I started. I hated taking French because I couldn't stand having to memorize hundreds of conjugations and the gender of every noun. I started taking Chinese and blasted through classes with As.
Then my teacher quit, and the replacement kind of sucks, totally sucked all the fun out of learning for me.
Five years later I'm back learning French.
thx for all the comments. I can't promise it, but I could try to help with your Chinese.
