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 Why 『衛護』's 『護』 is 言部?
@Mike - I removed the extra English text at the end of your question as this is more suited as a comment and not part of the actual question.

comment Authoritative source for 一 changing to 4th tone before 1st, 2nd or 3rd
@Jon - It may not come across as a very good question and not worthy of any votes, however I didn't learn my Chinese from western style text books and I am very interested in learning about these things when I come across them. However, I also want to be sure that what I am learning is correct. I have often found that different books and teachers contradict each other.
