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.

comment Grammar for counting in Chinese (for non-native speakers of Chinese)
@StumpyJoePete - I don't buy it. Better off not displaying anything than being wrong. Who wants to read 3个猫? If it's not a Chinese reader then what's the point of the exercise? If it doesn't matter then why bother with the classifier in the first place. I can't see the point of reading through a text where all of the MW are wrong, seems a pointless exercise to me and as a software developer it sounds like a faulty piece of software.

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