Hello Fathma!

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Since you are from Taiwan, is it difficult for you to read the simplified characters? I had a roomate from Taiwan in university who complained that the mainland Chinese used a simplified writing system that was hard to read.

Unforunately, the traditional writing system used in Taiwan is just too difficult for me!!!

    I realize that you are a very studious student.That's great for you.

    Telling the truth, I don't like simplified Chinese for their cuting the words as they wish and without a reason.That has turned the Chinese language into a ridiculous language in the world.

For example :

面子 means face ,  麵粉 means flour , It could easily tell the difference between them by the side 麥 of the word 麵, for 麥 means a kind of plant.Now they use the same word 面 in these two cases. How could you tell ,hereafter ?  面子,面粉  What is it all about  ?

   We ,Chinese in Taiwan,all know that traditional Chinese is real Chinese language.

i don't think so , i think most of chinese people use simplified  chinese, they all understand that , but you are in taiwan, not in mainland  , so you dont even know about chinese people , i dare to say . as a chinese , you shouldn't say so .anyway,hello ,Aljensen, i think the translation is good , most of them are right . have a nice day there . see ya !
