So. I noticed that there weren't very many Chinese discussion threads out there, so I decided to start one! ✿ No, you do not have to talk in Chinese all the time, nor do you have to know Chinese to hang out in this thread. ✿ I do ask you to post only if you have an interest in Chinese culture or the Chinese language.
In case anyone wants Chinese/Taiwanese drama or movie recommendations~

Hello! Wish I could be typing in Chinese instead of English :')
For a time I've been studying Mandarin in a small school here, (I'm living in Peru and thus I already know spanish.) I really enjoyed learning, but I now know it takes a great deal of time to actually grasp the language well. It takes a lot of dedication, but the language is beautiful so I've been thinking of continuing my studies. smile
I plan to visit China in some point of my life. It's on my bucket list! Haha~
I give this thread lots of luck and that it may grow! wink
