Anyway, I didn't pay much attention to the greeting either.…

My Daily Chinese Study Routine.

I posted this response to a question on Memrise about whether or not memorising vocab was enough to learn Chinese. So I thought I would share it here too :)

I have found the course really helpful. Before using memrise, my study was a bit haphazard and all over the place. But since supplementing my study with memrise, I have started learning chinese at a much faster pace. So my advice is stick with it and also supplement it with other forms of study.

Is studying Chinese hard?

Allow me to introduce myself, I am Ben from Learn Chinese Now, YouTube's premier learning Chinese channel (well at least that is how I describe it!)

I would like to answer a question that I get asked a lot: "Is learning Chinese hard?" I have been studying Chinese for 7 years, and 4 of those years were spent studying full time in University. In this time I have formed the following opinion on the question.

Learning Chinese is not hard, as long as you are really…

He Na of China Daily Reveals the Secret to Successful Transnational Marriages.

Though cultural differences and an alien environment are often cited as obstacles, many still firmly believe these are trivial things in the face of true love. No nationwide data is available on transnational marriages, but Beijing Civil Affairs Bureau said that 1,183 transnational couples got married in the city in 2012, with more than 1,100 tying the knot every year since 2008.  Never mind the cultural differences, He Na of China Daily reveals the secret to successful transnational…

Who are the translators David Hawkes and Henry Bencraft Joly ?

Often when reading about the 18th-century novel by Cao Xueqin usually known as the Dream of the Red Chamber ( Hong Lou Meng ), which is regarded as one of the greatest works of traditional Chinese fiction, I see comments such as " the translation is not as good as the David Hawkes translation " or " not as bad as the translation by Henry Bencraft Joly."  Using Google I immediately found the Wiki page and an Obituary for David Hawkes…
