despite we are both having mandarin classes, none of us dares yet to speak it: even the very basics take a long time to grasp; and, since in general chinese people don’t have any english skills at all, we haven’t been talking much with locals here.

having said that, i would like to announce that yesterday we were able to communicate with one chinese couple we met in the elevator. in dutch.

    Good luck to you Paolo..since I speak English , live in the Netherlands speak Frisian, French and Hebrew too. :) So..I know what you mean.

    I would love to visit China since my adopted granddaughter came from that country and we have no luck so far receiving a postcrossing..China card… BUT LOVE THE CONCEPT !!And hey I send you a good luck card from here anyway.!!

    Succes met dit nieuwe avontuur.
    Good luck with this new adventure.

    Wat kun je na bijna een jaar allemaal al zeggen in het Nederlands? ;-)

    I think it’s very funny that a lot of people on are asking to teach them some words in another language. They want to know the strangest things. Some words I can’t tell here, haha, but I also wrote a story about zangparkieten. Check that out, lol.
