I live in Hong Kong and I speak fluent English and Cantonese.

I know some French and some other dialects but not that good.

I am trying to self study Mandarin and I can read some basic Traditional Chinese. Hopefully, when I have time to learn some Simplfied Chinese. With the computer u can convert simplified to tradtional easily. :D

I am looking for language exchange or anything. Feel feel to pm me back :D

You can say I'm Hongkonger. But my parents are native Hong Konger.

Anyway, thanks for the greetings.


Yes, I have a question:

Where can I learn the chinese writing structures?

you can go to RESOURCES,  then  click on "Add-ons"

there's a software called "Skritter Lite".

maybe that can help you to write Chinese.

and you also can buy a book to learn some basic Chinese character components, that will help you to recognize the characters much easier.
