I'll explain later.
Are there any of you that can provide (preferably phonetic) translations into either Cantonese or Mandarin of a few simple and quite possibly non-sensical phrases? They'd be things similar to those found in Torg Dream Fighters.

Sadly, I have not yet learned it, though I very much would like to. I was preparing to download a Chinese Language learning system from iTunes over a week ago. Still not sure if thats the way I'd like to go with the learning of it. There is appeal to being around people to learn a new language.

This reminded me of a couple sentences I took note of some time ago from a book called "The Art Of Plain Talk" by Rudolf Flesch:

pg. 12 chapter 2: "....up to about fifty years ago all language experts agreed that Chinese is the 'baby talk of mankind'."

pg.12 chapter 2: "....the main principle of modern Chinese is exactly the same as that of modern machinery. It consists of standardized prefabricated, functionally designed parts."

I do hope I learn another language soon. Bilingual I am, yet my mind desires to know more and express myself in new (old/used to) ways.
