Learning chinese

  • 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

    他的猫吃了你的香蕉
    ta'de mao chi'le ni'de xiang'jiao
    his cat ate your banana

    That's all for now :P
