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.

@Stan - I was confused because Google translate is telling me that 夏时 by itself means daylight savings, can I use just 夏时 in a sentence or I need to say 夏时制?
