  • <<靜夜思(Quiet Night Thoughts)>>, 李白 is a good introduction.--Hillgentleman 11:46, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Dialect names[edit source]

The dialects mentioned should probably be called by their more common English names, Cantonese and Mandarin. Otherwise it will be confusing. The Jade Knight 08:00, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

I agree, so I changed it, hope nobody minds ;D 86.137.109.142 09:29, 23 February 2007 (UTC)


Course Planning[edit source]

I thought it's not a bad idea if we structure the two courses, Mandarin and Cantonese, similarly to a University course. Then at least it has some goals and a difference to just any old course. I propose around 24 lessons or however many weeks are in one academic year, and then seperate (but connected) lessons for reading, writing, listening and speaking, as that is how it is taught at most Universities. I will register a sername soon. 86.137.109.142 09:50, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

I've added the "Welcome and Advise" template above as a reminder that we should use Wikibooks material where appropriate, but to make sure we don't duplicate it here. Let's make sure this is an interactive course. See the Chinese Wikibook. The Jade Knight 22:28, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
