  7. holytink said: Hi :D I am learning Chinese as a subject but they mostly teach vocabulary and some simple grammar examples. Because I don't have a chance to practice with Chinese students in my college, I can only try to watch lots of Chinese dramas, movies and practice speaking with my classmates (which are at the same level as me). Can you recommend me another effective ways to improve my Chinese listening and speaking skills? Thank you :D


    For listening I think maybe now you need to listen to Chinese Radio For speaking I think you need to write an article or journal entry in Mandarin  since this will help you review what you have learned and you will make more progress. Writing an article will help you create more and more complex sentences, and you will finally be able to say what you want to say fluently!


  9. ChineseCUBES - Minimalist Movie Poster Challenge

    This famous movie famously made monsters in your closet seem more innocent. But can you guess what movie it is?

    See what characters you can recognize from the title at the bottom or if you can recognize this minimalistic movie poster! 

    Did you figure it out? It’s Monsters, Inc.!

    The Chinese name is《怪物公司》and is made up of two phrases:

    • The first phrase 怪物 (guàiwu) means “monster”. It’s easy to remember because it is made up of the characters for “strange” 怪物 (guài) and “creature” 物 (wu).
    • The second phrase 公司 (gōngsī) means “company”
