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 Difference between 我饿了 and 我很饿?
@QuestionOverflow - But we don't say "I'm already hungry" in English, that's why I don't understand the difference

@QuestionOverflow - I actually reviewed this against the other answers already provided and because it was different I decided to leave it. It's hard to make a single new entry into a complete answer.

comment Why is 喂 used over 你好 when answering the phone?
Hi Alex, thanks for your answer. Your answer doesn't explain why "喂" is used, it says why 你好 isn't used. Answers which don't provide an answer to the askers question may deleted or converted to a comment.

comment When breaking down a character, what do you do for parts where no radical exists?
I guess a different way of asking this question is whether or not all parts of a character have a radical. Also, why is this info useful?
