China blog list.org

cbl-title-csl.gif

This is a list of blogs in Chinese written by learners of Chinese as foreign language. Some are really fun to read!
http://www.chinabloglist.org/csl/

Here's an example:
大斋节
今天 是 肥美星期二(好?也翻译?肥肥的星期二),明天是圣?节,是大斋节第一日。圣?节和?难节那两个节日基?徒必须得?食。

那两天除了海鲜,任何肉类都?能??。还有,在那两个节日的时候一天?能?一顿饭。早?????能?一些。大斋节期间的?个周五也?能?肉产?,?过那天?象圣?节和?难节?食。

我估计今年?人基?徒过圣?节有一点困难。今年圣?节也是春节???一日,农历里??除夕。除夕晚上有?少?人跟家庭团员?一顿很大的晚?,?过基?徒?能分享无肉的?。

记?:除夕的 “除? 和 ?一??二??三的 “?? 是两个??的?。?少人认为它们是一个?。请??那样以为。谢谢。

按照教堂规定,?有21至59?之间的基?徒必须?食。孕妇和病人?以??食。而且,圣?节和?难节的时候?能?便???。?时?一些饮料是?以的。

自从我?大陆以?,?年大斋节的周日?圣?节??难节,我得???解释为什么有时候?能?肉。因此我就写这篇文章。希望从今往??以安安??地?我的海鲜,?用回答?样的问题,哈哈。

Rutgers Chinese

Hi everyone,

This is the Rutgers Chinese learning site. The novice level dialogues are traditional dialogues, but the intermediate and advanced levels are authentic texts--so maybe it suits advanced students more.

http://chinese.rutgers.edu/content_cs.htm

This is for example one of the texts about Chinese names:--although I'm thinking whether this is too difficult because of the vocabulary. What do you think?

相对欧美严格的???制度,中国人的???方法就?活多了。中国人往往把希望寄托
在孩?的??字上,而且??字还常常??映了历?的??,社会的?展以?政治背景。如果把
有典型特徵的中国人??汇集一下,足?以从中获得?少感性资料。

先从乳??说起。大多?到父?或祖父?钟爱的孩?,都会有一个乳??。其中“????
“????“?乖??“毛毛? 之类相当普??。

?说学??。旧时儿童一上学,就应有个正?学??了。学??的??堂相当多,有人用房屋
的结构??称给男孩???,望其???,于是先後育出了“????“?栋??“?柱?等
兄弟。

在大陆,人们给女孩???字,以往总喜欢选用“淑??“贤??“贞??“莲?等
字。到了五??年代末“大跃进?,中国政府决心在几年之内在?济上超过英国?美国等?
达国家。从“超英?,“超美?,“跃进?等??字中,?用问人们马上就知?这些人出生
的年代。六??年代,文化大?命的强劲东风?把“?东?,“文??等?得家喻户晓。

当然也有许多??字与政治和社会?展无关。大部分中国人希望自己孩?的??字?仅念
起?好?,?义好,而且??会与他人??字??。越?越多的中国人?到了良好的教育,
多数家庭??有一个孩?,所有父?都希望他们“???的??字最动?。?时孩?的??
字?从?一方???映了父?的知识水平,所以很多父?都在起??的“竞赛?中拼??。

??社会的?展,人们已???传统?维方?的?缚,在追求个性的?时,也希望
自己的??字独具一格。中国的传统文化和文字的丰富?义,使中国人??显得多姿多采。
