Chinese Culture/Language - 中文交谈俱乐部


The language and ancient culture of China includes not just the world's most enormous country but spreads across various countries of Asia - and increasingly, well beyond. Here we explore all aspects of that culture.

Here, too, is your spot for asking questions, finding resources, and/or just hanging out & chatting in Chinese (mostly Mandarin, but Cantonese and others welcome, too!).

Good luck! I think you'll enjoy learning Chinese, it's definitely a fun language. One tip: Chinese has the easiest grammar on the planet, there's no gender, no verb tenses, no plural.... You know complex grammars like Spanish, with subjunctive moods and irregular verbs... there's none of that! The only difficult part is memorizing the characters, but you can do that! And getting used to the tones in pronunciation, but you'll get used to that too.

真有意思!谢谢!I don't usually like to look at the animals I'm going to eat in their pre-cooked stage, but I have to confess this clip made me hungry!

This clip doesn't belong under songs, so I'm putting it here. This is the opening scene of the Ang Lee film "Eat Drink Man Woman," a wonderful movie I highly recommend. If you love Chinese food, you'll love this film. The actor doing the cooking is Lang Hsiung, a regular in Ang Lee's Chinese language films who is sadly no longer with us.
