I've spent three years living in China, and speak pretty reasonable Chinese (+ my girlfriend is a translator). I love Macs, travel, and the internet, and I'm always trying to get in shape. Anything else you'd like to know? Just ask.

comment Why is stroke order important when writing Chinese characters?
Hey, would you be able to reference your first point there? I can understand that for cursive writing stroke order could influence the shape, but if you are writing 一笔一划, I can't see why it would make a difference, and surely if you can write the characters, it doesn't matter what the order is?

comment How can I improve the speed of my spoken Chinese?
@Huang - I quite like that song though, and I can do a few other fast-ish ones by him - 稻香 and 爸,我回来了。
