Considering the current situation with the pandemic + protests, how crazy do you think it is to come to Hong Kong to study Mandarin? (I rly wanna master my Chinese but China is closed)

I know that Hong Kong has never been a popular place to learn Mandarin, and the locals don’t speak it well, BUT it is literally the only part of China (no politics here, I am just referring to the region), which is still possible to enter as a foreigner if you do not have permanent residence. HK immigration is still issuing student visas, while mainland and Taiwan don’t even make any vague promises about openning. I have been to HK several times and locals seemed pretty friendly when I was trying to practice my Mandarin with them. However since my Chinese is pretty average (I was studying in Shanghai for half of a year before before the pandemic) + recent political situation and the fact that I am white, so I guess locals would still prefer to use eng or canto.

Anyways, how is the situation in the city? how do locals react if you address them in Mandarin? Is it possible to have enough practice? Are there any mainlanders left or all flee back to China? or locals actually would be happy to practise Mandarin with me just for fun, like they do in China/Taiwan?

Hope someone living in HK could advice me with this.

Hi all,

I’ve attached some pictures on one half of a keychain (it’s supposed to be a couples type keychain where each person as one half). The two characters on the right are “niu fen” – “cow dung”. I believe the whole meaning is supposed to be like flowers “xian hua….niu fen” so like the guy is niu fen the girl is xian hua.

 

However the characters on the left only show half the word – the top half character looks like “se” 色 but I’m not sure what the full two characters are supposed to be or what the matching keychain is supposed to be.

 

Would anyone have any idea?

 

Many thanks!

Hello! I’m adopted and would like to get in touch with my foster parents in China. I’m from Nanning located in the southern area of the Guangzi Zhaung Autonomous Region but was adopted when I was one years old and emigrated to America. Although the common language of the region is Cantonese, I’m not 100% sure what dialect they speak. I would really love some help in translating their address so that I can learn that language and hopefully reconnect with them.
