    sheffield is a good uni, the girls there are really hot. Kind of angery with myself for not applying. I applied to UCL instead, biggest mistake ever.
    UCL is a good university too, I considered about it before, but it's too expensive to me to study architecture in London, so I gave up~

    Yeah~I like Sheffield, they are really good. They asked me to represent my street in a medium of my choice. So still confusing how to deal with it..may be Chinese traditional art??:confused:
    Ofcourse you can do anything!, unless they specify..:confused: Chinese traditional art- that will show you love your culture etc maybe ? XD
    I liked Sheffield too, and I also liked the trams in the city itself, reminds me of Hong kong islandXD
    I missed my offer for Sheffield last year, lol, they didnt ask for portfolio though :P, i guess its getting more competitive this year, which I'm really worried about ~!

    Nǐ hǎo, I've just started learning some Mandarin like.. this morning. It's pretty fun but bloody challenging (just how I like it).

    Unlike loads of you I imagine, wǒ shì yīng guó rén hé wǒ shì 100% pó.
    (yeah this pinyin sucks. I'm going to have to start writing in Chinese. Writing a complete sentence in Chinese letters would be such an awesome feeling )

    I think I recognise 中國人, is that literally middle-kingdom people? (zhōng guó rén)

    Any advice? I'm doing some audio lessons. Tā hěn shàn
    Audio lessons complemented by this online Mandarin dictionary. Do you have to just.. start memorising characters?

    how did u manage to mark the characters with tones?

    looking back upon how i learned my native tongue,

    1. pinyin (phonetic alphabet + tones "be careful for the third tone....pretty tough at least for me it was though " )

    2. the strokes ( character radicals "memorising them based on thier connotation *my special methods, heehee*)"+ stroke order "left-->right & top -->bottom & outside--> insight" )

    3. how to write chinese characters

    4. phrase

    5. making sentences

    6. reading + writing

    plus, oral and listening all the time. :yep:

    I put the sentence into a website I found online, with like "wo1" after each word for the tone, can't remember what one though :mad:

    Thanks for the help. Is the third tone the one that's down and up? That's easy :p: in fact they're all easy!

    What do you mean by radicals?

    it seems you have the potential to speak good chinese very soon.

    (Original post by Selkarn)
    What do you mean by radicals?
    the radical is component of a chinese character ( sometimes on one side of a word).

    i.e. 你 (you) : the radical is the left part of the character signifying it's something related to human beings. and also like 他 (he)

    can you understand?

    mmm...another example:

    草 (grass)its radical is the upper part of the word which implies the word represents a kind of plant.

    btw, radicals can't be typed out on pc. :p: :p: :p:
