    The word for "Russia" is "e guo." The "e" is pronounced with 2nd tone.

    Maybe noone responded to me because I used some vocabulary you usually wouldn't learn. Here is vocabulary:

    俄文 Russian language -e2 wen2
    俄国 Russia -e2 guo2
    人民 - people - ren2 min2
    人民画报 - The People's Picture Magazine - ren2 min2 hua4 bao4
    共青团 - Communist Youth League - gong4 qing1 tuan2


    To JJ:
    If you want to say your name, you can also say this:
    我叫 (name)
    wo3 jiao4
    My name is....

    我姓 (last name)
    wo3 xing4
    My surname is....(remember, in China, people are usually adressed by their last name)

    张先生
    Zhang1 xian1 sheng5
    Mr. Zhang
    This was the title used before Communism. It is now returning to regular use.

    张小姐
    Zhang1 xiao3 jie3 (xiao2 jie3)
    Ms. Zhang
    Polite title for women in use now

    张同志
    Zhang1 tong2 zhi4
    Comrade Zhang
    This was the title used earlier, but now it is old-fashioned sounding. In Taiwan and Hong Kong, the word "comrade" has now developed a double meaning of "homosexual." "tong" means "the same." "zhi" means "will"(earth and heart). People of the same will are comrades, or...

    你好!
    Ура! Я нашёл альтернативную программу для печати иероглифов!
    http://uk.geocities.com/BabelStone1357/ ... elPad.html

    你写你是中国的人.
    I thought you were Thai. Or Somali prince.
    However, таец, китаец... almost the same in Russian.

    你也写 "我是共青团的人".
    我想你不知道,共青团这是什么.

    As I said before, we are everywhere There is a large population of Chinese in Thailand who speak "Dae Jiu"(dialect of Southern Min).

    I'm not really in the Communist Youth League, but it was one of my vocabulary words this week, and I thought I would use it

    你们会这儿念“人民画报”
    http://www.china-pictorial.com/chpic/htdocs/index.html
    也有俄文
    人民画报很有意思

    我从朋友哪儿来...

    By the way, I learned today Russian word "Kitai" is derived from some Mongol word for northern Altaic peoples...

    Tong zhi has been my nickname for a long time b/c I'm Russian, so my friends call me Comrade or Tong Zhi now....

    My friend is from China, so we all made each other funny names in Chinese. My one friend is "Shu ma" (water horse) and my other friend is "Mi mao" (honey cat). It's just interesting...
    yes my life is that crazy

    If you have win XP, it's really easy to enable Chinese support(I'll make a new topic on it). If not, you can still do it, but it gets a little harder.

    Most of what you said was understandable but I didn't get "wo xue zhuengshung zhong wen." "xue" is a verb meaning "learn" - "wo xue zhong wen" - I'm learning Chinese. "Xuesheng" is a "learn-being" or a "student." Wo shi zhongwende xuesheng." I'm a student of Chinese.

    As for your friend's nicknames, I think they are rather pretty. I don't really think nicknames make life that much crazier, for instance, my nickname(among some) is "White Chocolate" and another guy I know is "Fooles."

    YAYYYY!!!! Now we have a Chinese expert who can help us, and another Chinese learner! Rejoice!

    My wordcount has unfortunately been sitting at 222 for quite a while(Jasper's count staying at 130 made me lazy), but I htink I will start picking it up again. If I hadn't been really getting back into guitar playing then I would ahve more time for Chinese...

    你们好 again, my 朋友们!
    Since we have a true Chinese expert, may be he can help me a little.
    Maraone: what's the difference between
    下边, 下面, 下头,
    上边, 上面, 上头,
    里边, 里面, 里头,
    前边, 前面, 前头,
    后边, 后面, 后头,?
    Or are they used in absolutely any cases without any difference?

    Hi Propp,
    Actually,generally speaking,these words can be used in the same way without causing any confusions, only a little bit difference. Let me take some examples:
    他在楼下边/面/头等你. He is waiting for you downstairs.(In this case,"边/面/头" make no difference,but "头" is more informal than first two ones)
    好戏在后头. The climax always lies in the latter part.(In this case,people only use "头", because it is a proverb with fixed form)

    ok,hope that can help you in your Chinese learning.

    Вы правы, сударынья, правильно сказать, что Правит говорит по-китайски. Если Вы интересуетесь китайским языком, Вы можете его выучить в этом приличном форуме. Здесь только пристойные джентельмены.

    Кстати, если Вам не трудно, пожалуйста перестаньте называть меня на "Вы." А мне все эта формальность слишком удушлива.

    Hey, you shouldn't blame her for saying 'вы', after all, it is very hard to find out how old you are (seeing how secretive you are of your age and how mature you act).
