Have been learning Chinese for about 10 years now. Although I get to practice every day with my wife and family, I am still only average.

Where I live is about 80% Chinese speakers so I have plenty of people to practice with and it's like living in China without actually being there.

@QuestionOverflow - I don't use any Chinese social media sites so not sure if there has been anything invented in the past few years.

@HagenvonEitzen - Just to confirm what was said by Nihil. This answer is mostly correct, except for using 个 as a catch all. This might be acceptable for someone just starting to learn the language where it can be forgiven, but it will just look wrong anywhere else.
