sis, if you want, why not try searching over the net ng mga downloadable software/e-books/audio books?

yup, i agree. meron akong nakuhang euroasia free source software for mandarin. it has the radical characters and some 500 frequently used ones. ok sya, nga [textspeak!] it doesn't have sounds. but if you get basic 5 tones for mandarin, i think mas madali na. it teaches stroke orders too so you can learn how to actually write the character. me kasi i'm more on the reading and understanding the characters, kasi ang goal ko is to be able to read all jin yong books! 1 lang ang may english translation! waaah!

i'm studying it now side by side: euroasia ZDT for characters and meanings; and rosetta stone for pronunciation and meanings.

meron ding books sa powerbooks [textspeak!] 250 most important chinese words 2 volumes but 1k+ ang isa, so expensive! hehe... kurips kasi ako ngayon eh. hehe

as for the others inquiring where i bought the rosetta stone level 1 & 2 packs, i'll IM you na lang. note: i don't sell ha hehe... but if you want i could buy 1 for you tapos ship ko nalang heheh...

madali kaya para sa isang non-chinese ang matuto ng mandarin? kasi naisip ko lang, yung mga chinese, bata pa lang nag-aaral na sila ng language na ito. pero pano naman kung 100% pinoy talaga at walang background sa chinese?

^ the best school for german is the goethe institut. the school is now located in makati :)

really? goethe institut is now in makati? where exactly, sis? i took a crash course in goethe institut along aurora boulevard 5 years ago eh.

Medyo mahirap ata ang german, i tried reading some stuff bout german language, actually basic german. hirap...

actually, german is quite an easier language to learn than, say, french or japanese. a lot of english words kasi came from the old germanic language kaya magkalapit lang. for example, beer is bier in german; arm, finger and hand are the same in german, slightly different in pronunciation lang.  ;)

hi sis calvin, i think ok [textspeak!] sya, at least mas madali na sa grown up na maintindihan [textspeak!] patterns.

personal experience? i'm actually trying to master 210 radicals right now. mej mahirap sya pero ok lang naman. siguro kasi i really want to learn to read. yun nga lang stagnant ako for the workdays ko, kasi sobrang late na ako nakakauwi sa dami ng work. so no time to memorize. i do it na lang during my days off. hehe para nga mapabilis ang memorization, i wrote the characters on manila paper and posted them on the walls of my room hehe... mukhang cave girl tuloy ako hehe.

girls, i bought rosetta stone-learning chinese cd yesterday and started learning chinese hehe..
it's quite difficult kasi [textspeak!] han yu [textspeak!] ang kaya kong basahin, but for a jump start in speaking another language, it's a good software to start while were still scouting for the language school of our choice.
so far, no reply pa from UP eh. :)

sis rhythmwhispers, where did you buy rosetta stone-learning chinese? pm me naman for details and how much. tnx.

hi! the rules on subject-verb agreement are essentially the same in german as in english. however, the verbs take on many different forms. another big challenge in studying the german language is memorizing the genders of all the nouns. and unlike french, which only has 2 genders, german has 3: masculine, feminine and neutral. the gender of nouns has a very important effect in the rules of german grammar.

mga sis, if you have the contact information of languages international or other languages schools, please post them here

my younger sister wants to study mandarin or korean and we're looking for a good school.

somebody mentioned UP. do they have informal courses for mandarin, korean, etc? which particular college? CCSP, Asian Studies Center, etc?

thanks mga sis :)

dito ata ako naging anemic talaga. major nosebleed! ang hirap tandaan lahat! yung grammatical structure, medyo mas mahirap sa german compared to spanish, even english.

sinabi mo sis! parang ang dami-daming rules. lalo na yun mga irregular verbs nila pati adjectives kelangan take into consideration din kung feminine or masculine.
