In high school I took 3 years of Mandarin and 1 additional year in college. I thought it would be fun to challenge myself with such a complex language, besides....I got to draw stuff!
|A high school throwback!|
I started with simplified characters those first years, focusing more upon grammar. In college I learned how the more complex traditional characters were created by combining basic characters into more complex words. I wish I watched this Ted talk back in those days...
