    On the otherhand, being able to read and write the characters is cool. Although, being more dificult means easier to completely fail, I have learnt to dread the "oh, you can read Chinese/Japanese... what does this say?" and having to admit that those particular characters are as of yet out of my reach.
    It is tricky.
    not easy, not difficult...tricky.
    the pronounciation relies on rhitm and exhaling sounds.
    Writing it is tricky too as you spell several completely differet words almost exactly the same.

    i once wrote that the egyptian and american president did a whore together instead of a treaty.

    lol.

    This is quite strange. Not often do you go on this forum and see somebody talking about WA.
    I go to UWA btw, doing honours in nanotechnology.
    As far as I know UWA has no filters, but they are also massively in debt.
    In terms of martial arts, next year I hope to start doing BJJ or Judo. Had to stop because of uni.

    Hey meatmonkey! Sleep deprived, studying Japanese and Mandarin?

    I'll raise you a term paper in Japanese!

    My Mandarin is also deplorable.
