LOL yeah, I want Federer to win today...he's been in impressive form, really hope he meets Djokovic in the finals
Sydney won't let me change because they're way too bureaucratic! They're like, you can only change now after a semester. I was a bit beat up about it earlier but then I realised I can do something awesome like psychology...something i've really been interested in!
Btw, how does your timetable look like? I haven't seen one for Combined Law yet, I fear it's going to be 5 days a week lol
I see you changed to International Studies/Law. Damn USyd won't let me change from Arts/Law to Commerce/Law. Oh well, I seem pretty keen on doing a Psychology major It'd be a pretty awesome combo with law haha
Also, on a side note...how good did Djokovic play today? I'm so pumped for Federer v Nadal tomorrow
yeah I have done the placement questionnaire. They placed me into Intermediate Chinese - non background speakers. As for you, Mandarin shouldn't be too hard to pick up, although your accent will be a bit rusty.
I can't practice mandarin at home because I have to speak english to my parents for convenience
I speak cantonese at home to my parents but even then it's not so great, because I don't have much family here (to practise my chinese). My parents convince me to learn mando, so I am, but I'm not sure where my level is at. That being said, have you done the interview for the placement?
wow more Korean. Man I can't even construct a single sentence in Korean. Can only read some characters in Korean, can't write
I've forgotten how to actually write but I still type Chinese through the keyboard.
I guess you'd probs need to be slightly more all-rounded. Try beginners at first, and then if you find it too easy in the first week, change to intermediate. As for me I'm going straight to intermediate because I can read, write, construct sentences and have working knowledge of around 400 characters. But the only thing is that I don't actually speak Chinese at home, I speak English at home, but I speak Mandarin outside of school. I know a very few phrases in Cantonese though
and wow, learning korean too aye? I reckon learn Chinese first, then Korean will be a piece of cake for you.
