comment What is 被 doing in sentence “这种病在三十年前就被根除了”?
@StumpyJoePete: Normally, I'd agree with you, but I think it was the sentence structure which confused me. I simply haven't seen anything like that in my native language.. I'm sure I'll be thinking the same thing as you some day, but you gotta think of us noobs :)

@StumpyJoePete: I...really don't know how to answer that question. Why is anything confusing when you're learning? A double slit experiment is a simple case of showing wave-particle duality, so why is it so confusing?

@MikeManilone: "find 量詞 out in a sentence first" - You mean actively scan a sentence for 量詞 before reading it? Is this even possible during normal-speed reading?

I certainly hope that's true! If only Chinese had fewer words, this would be so much easier.. :)

That's actually one of the reasons I keep studying it - it's damn hard but so different and entertaining at the same time. Not to mention potentially useful in a few years :)
