Just recently switch from elementary to Intermediate and it feels like a big slap...but I enjoy the challenge!!

Great job everybody @ChinesePod : still enjoyable & refreshing to listen to after 2000 lessons!!

what's app isn't working in china?...many of the friends I know from HK  (locals) mentionned using whats app but I never heard of weixin!

On a more grammatical aspect... in all the phrases like sending something to someone I have the feeling "gei somebody" can either be at the end or before the “发”。。is that right?

Well I would say aroma and flavour can also means more or less the same in french...though aroma would suggest that it "human made" and not coming from a real fruit/plant.

@ tingyun : still a bit hard @ my level to start using dictionary but that might be a good habit to take!! funny I never found the need of it while learning english.

in one of my book I have 气味=smell  味道=flavor...but from the expansion I got the feeling weidao can also means smell.

Does both words means the same?!

Anybody know when they switched from the old to new HSK..I thought it was like 2/3 years ago ??not sure at all since I started studying a year ago.

@crabstix I personally took the test as to certify some level of chinese on my cv...I'm not convinced preparing HSK is the most useful for dayto day life!

I would guess it should be: 我要欧元换人民币 (wǒ yào ōuyuán huàn rénmínbì).

Is that right??!
