An ancient language system, thousands of years of accumulated medical and other knowledge, and the dedication and collective-mindedness (vs. self-centeredness) of the people.
Not yet... just learning for pleasure, leisure, travel, and making friends.
Lived in mainland China for 2.5 years (Qingdao and Wuxi).
About 600 hours so far (as of the end of 2015).
Ni hao, y'all! I'm back in SD after living in China for a couple years. Looking forward to practicing Mandarin and talking about China.
