Awan sahab, I have my own theory on this subject.....If you are not born in China, you maybe able to understand the language to some extent but it is impossible to speak it. smile.gif

Azad sahab, infact I am much eager to learn this language.....lekin aap mere jazbe ko peda hone se pehle hi maarna chahte hain, laugh.gif
Is you theory verified by someone else as well??? or is it just a local and personal theory?

Main mazaaq kar raha tha Awan bhai. It is only my personal feeling, don't take it too seriously biggrin.gif . I have been living here in China for more than 4 years now and have only managed to pick up bits and pieces of the language (survival version), I guess I never tried hard enough. Although there are some foreigners here who can communicate every well in the local language and I am sure you will too.

I have lived and worked in other Asian countries including Japan and I could speak Japanese within two years of being there. So comparatively Chinese is a difficult language beacuse of the 4 tones they use which makes every word have 4 different meanings depending on how you say it (base. midtone1, midtone2 or treble). A simple word like "Ma" can mean mother or horse etc .......... and that made me lose all hope of learning the language.

Good luck with your mission.

Sorry for the late reply, was a little busy.
What extent do you want to go to with the language, conversation level or literature as well. I would suggest you start learning by actually hearing and not by reading Ping Ying (Chinese words written in English are called Ping Ying). You can get huge surprises with words like "Qing" which is not pronounced as King but as Ching. I actually have mp3's of basic chinese lessons and could send them to you. PM me your external email address if you want them.

Hi Puneet, I sometimes wonder why they have the Chinese New Years at all, it is absolutely chaotic and the whole country is just a rush rush rush. On the contrary, it is straight 7 days holidays starting Sunday.
Just send me a pm and I will help you in whichever way I can.
