Hey listeners! How do you motivate yourself when you learn Chinese? Leave us a comment here!

Hi Gail,

Traditional characters are used widely in outside mainland China, such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast Asia and even Chinese communities in the US. So it should be very helpful if you know the traditional ones. Also, having known traditional characters make it easier to identify simplified Chinese characters.
So if you are living in Seattle, I would recommend you to keep learning traditional Chinese :thumbsup:

Hi David Lloyd-Jones,

In this context, 幻想,想象 and 设想 are all acceptable.

I like these . I learn traditional chinese character when I was young, should l continue read the lesson traditional character or learn to read the simplyfy instead. I found its more familia with the traditional one,but what is more useful when travel , order food in the restaurant. I live in Seattle , all the menu in the restaurant and sign are in tradtional form. I love your program and the reminder to keep up the lesson just like having a personel tutor 24/7.
Thank you

我幻想有一天我會去那個國家旅行或者在那個國家生活!it sez here. But surely 幻想, huàn xiǎng, is the wrong word. I don’t want to fantasize the impossible of visiting or living in China.

Surely I want to 想象, xiǎng xiàng, imagine it, or even better, 设想, shè xiǎng, envisage it?

Or are these the right words for conveying imagining with a strong element of planning in it?
