It’s been a year…

It’s been a year and I hope there is many more to come. It has definitely been an amazing experience so far. Thank you for reading my blog, leaving comments and sharing it with others. I really appreciate your support.

This is my 72nd post today, so I have written 6 posts a month on average. I have written about Chinese vocabulary, grammar, proverbs, songs, places, food, and places among many others. I have tried to cover as many aspects of Chinese language and Chinese culture as possible. Please let me know if there is anything in particular that you wish I wrote about.

Today I would like to share with you some of the posts I really enjoyed writing, but they somehow failed to make it to the ‘Popular posts’ on the right side.

First, just in case you forgot, here is why I started writing this blog

Why write this blog?

It’s always nice to learn some Chinese grammar, but it’s even better when you are learning about Yao Ming as well

As tall as Yao Ming

America is called the ‘beautiful country’ in Chinese language. But is it because the Chinese think that America beautiful?

Is America beautiful?

We also got a chance to learn how to count in Chinese language. Here is how to count from 1 to 10

Lucky Beijing Olympics

We have learned few Chinese songs, but this song has to be the most popular among all the Chinese language students

Kan Guo Lai

Similarly we learned few Chinese proverbs as well, and this one has always been one of my favorites. And the comic that I found definitely made this one of my favorite posts

Speak of the Chinese devil

Qingdao city may not be as widely known as Shanghai or Beijing, but it is definitely worth a visit. Here is why

Qingdao city, Tsingtao beer

Learning Chinese language is fun, but learning Chinglish is even better


These may not be as bad as Chinglish, but some Chinese people do have some interesting English names. Watch this video

Chinese people, English names

As one of the comments says, I love the ‘extremeness’ of these sentences

I am starving to death

And last but not the least, you haven’t learned Chinese until you know how to say Obama in Chinese language. Maybe not, but here is how you say Obama in Chinese language

How to say Obama in Chinese language?

There were many others I wanted to include, but I had to pick and choose. Which one is your favorite? I would love to know.
