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 How to come from 二百五 to 二百九?
Hi susis, what does "I have to add up 三八 and 二 to it to obtain 二百九", I don't understand what this means. I don't see how you are comparing 三八 to 二百九?
