Learning Chinese

This page is an overview of all the posts I've written on learning Chinese language. My main focus is on phrases and vocabulary, but they acquire a certain level of foreknowledge. I'm using Standard Chinese or 國語 spoken in Taiwan and the original Chinese characters 繁體中文 together with my own version of pinyin.
