My Chinese has deteriorated quite a bit over the years. Trying to ressucitate it. I speak a few other languages with varying degrees of fluency.

Yay, lucky number!

I don't think the writing system analogy is a good one. I don't understand French even though I am a native Portuguese speaker, but someone who speaks Cantonese can understand Standard written Chinese.

comment Techniques for improving pronunciation
