Nah, it will never catch on, like Latin or Espiranto . . . it will just fade away


how do you know it? are you from the past or the future?

come on guys! just need an advise how to learn the language.

Thnx Irvine anyway. I'll try your method! but it seems singing doesn't need the tones.


funmandarin, you should have stopped while you were ahead. You other post soliciting students was deleted and your account has been locked. - moderator


Soliciting students? Never would have guessed.

Spent all day yesterday keeping my ears open . . . didn't hear any mandarin . . . just English and Bahasa . . . this Mandarin thing will never catch on, mark my words

Umm, do you know anyone on this board who gives Chinese language lessons, by any chance? I'd like to add the knowledge of Chinese to my already fluent grasp of Assyrian and Latin.
