    The "to be" looks wrong though...

    I must say, there is a lovely satisfactory feeling upon mastering the writing of a character which was once deemed relatively difficult.
    Yes! One I always find satisfying is 歡 from 喜歡。Or maybe 懂。Always so satisfying! I do have a major love for characters!

    First person pronoun is basically I (in the singular) or we (in the plural) so in Mandarin would be 我 or 我们. Personal pronouns apply to all languages-they're the words I, you, he, she, it, we, you and they

    You can find quite a few good resources on Amazon and in major bookstores. Amazon's better I think as you can see reviews and they also tend to be quite a bit cheaper. It's best if you get a book with CDs, at it means you'll learn pronunciation better. The teach yourself course it quite good, although it doesn't teach you characters, only pinyin. You should be able to find a good character book online though.
    I think that pronoun comment was one of the silliest things I've ever written I don't know why I thought pronouns might somehow not feature in Mandarin (I suppose I thought it might be similar to the differences in writing system). But yes, that's the character I learnt, 我 :awesome: I figured other characters were added to account for case and plurality

    Thanks, I'll check Amazon Learning the characters will also help me with my Japanese.

    No worries Yeah, the character 们 is added to indicate plurality with personal pronouns, so 我 (I/me) becomes 我们 (we/us) etc. One of my previous comments shows all the personal pronouns in Mandarin.

    Wouldn't mind learning a bit of Cantonese-it sounds so nice
