This must have taken you a long time to type. Any how this is good. How long have you been learning Chinese. How was your day? Sorry I don't mean to ask so many questions but I just like to talk to people who have the same passions as me. I love to learn Chinese and as you can see, I am very high in the Chinese level so it has been going a bit slow because it is getting very hard. If you know anyone who can speak and write Mandarin Chinese then please email me and tell me how to contact them. If possible please give me their email. Here's mine: jenaibatya@gmail.com. I can give you an honest promise that this is not some sort of scandal to take some sort of information from you or anyone else. I am a Godfearing Christian and I try my very best not to lie. So if you know anyone, then please contact me. But if you don't know anyone, then I am sorry for taking your time. Godbless and have a good day.

No worries at all. I’m happy to answer any questions.

  • It didn’t take me too long. I just copied and pasted the words and translations into a word document, and then posted that here. Took a while, but not too long.
  • I’ve been learning Chinese now for around 2 weeks or so. What about you?
  • I’m having a good day thanks :-)
  • If you’re looking for pen pals or just looking for someone to speak Chinese with, I can definitely recommend an app called Tandem. It matches you with people who speak the language you’re learning and who want to learn your native language. I hope that helps :-)

Hope that helps!

Oh my! Thank you! I was like at the Korean tree the other week but have given it up because the verbs are difficult. Now I am on the Chinese tree, and understands Chinese better than Korean, then suddenly I saw you do this again. Thank youuu!! :)))
