for a number of reasons I'm trying to learn chinese,
anyhow - there are lots of ups and downs
The tones are especially hard - every word has a different meaning depending on the tone you give it
The tones are numbered 1, 2, 3 and 4
1 is basically you have a sustained high tone - like falsetto
2 is where you inflect the second half of a word - like the last word in a question "you want to go where?"
3 is where you go low and then come back to where you started - so it's like a roller coaster down \_/ then up
4 is like when you say a command, like "go!"
I am using duolingo to learn and I also wanna post silly sentences here
ta'de mao chi'le ni'de xiang'jiao
his cat ate your banana
That's all for now
