I think this new forum is good. I had to activate it by email.
Signing in present, from France UTC+1.
Wondering what this new forum format will bring…
This new forum system seems very good but quite a lot to take in.
Warm good wishes to you all.
Yours is a name I know from several of my leaderboards. Thanks for providing me with the motivation to keep learning new things.
Many thanks to you for helping me to improve my Geography with your interesting and well constructed courses.
Hello, nice to meet you <3
sifushano here (well, here physically being the land downunder), actually for the best part of the last week (this memrise community portal, not the land downunder) …
我想學講而讀廣東話。I would like to learn how to speak and read the Cantonese language.
I am also interested in putting together some Cantonese memrise courses, the challenge there being that I am but a raw student.
Welcome to all and see you around the forums
Why cantonese? Do you already know mandarin Chinese?
Initially my interest was in the Chinese characters themselves. Looking for the reason behind some of the more common ones. It became obvious that a lot of the meaning was lost in the simplified characters now used in Putonghua/Mandarin. Now I understand that this is only roughly 2,500 of the more than 130,000 characters, many obscure and unused today. But my journey had commenced. It was then to either be Taiwanese: who speak Mandarin but use traditional characters for writing, or, Cantonese: a language spoken by many Chinese people living outside of China. This is due to the fact that Guangzhou was a port city and many Chinese people travelled to far lands, including the one I call home. Also, Hong Kong is a viable choice to live and work in and it is still a Cantonese speaking economic region, despite the best efforts of the Chinese Government. I love their defiance and it bears supporting
I am certain that 國語 will get a look in on my memrise course list before too long.
I’m sure most of you are aware I have been invited to this new forum and have been pretty active and supportive.
I assume the news forums are not (yet?) linked to our Memrise accounts. Am I correct?
It certainly doesn’t seem like they’re linked, especially considering that we have to manually input our Memrise rank. xD
Depends on what you mean by “linked”, I guess?
We do seem to automatically get the same username here as on memrise.
However, there doesn’t seem to be a way to refer to or link to memrise users who haven’t signed up themselves for this forum. And there doesn’t seem to be a clickable link from your profile here to your memrise profile.
I’m here! Another one from Memrise Madness on Facebook.
We can welcome forum user 1000 within a few days. Do we have a party?
From Amsterdam tulips for the 1000th user ……….
