A Conversation for Learning Languages
Dictionary use and non-phonetic languages
LaoShi-D Started conversation Sep 19, 2006
I agree with the original posting that reading a favorite book and looking up the meanings until you've got it solid is a good way to learn a language. However the language I am studying is Mandarin. This language uses symbols rather than phonetic words therefore a disctionary is rendered impossible to use. Yes, some allow for pin yin, a romanization of the language, b ut even here there are difficulties.
