  1. I just found you on twitter and checked out your site. You’re doing a great job with it!

    Unfortunately apart from the Michel Thomas courses which gave me some conversational basics, I’m not learning Mandarin at this time (have to work on Portuguese), but if I was learning it, I’d really subscribe to your site.

    Keep this up. 🙂

  2. I refer to the word “晓得” xiao3 de. I wonder what the difference between 知道 and 晓得. How do we use these words in certain context to ensure that the meanings can be conveyed correctly? Hope to hear from you soon.

    1. Hi Adrian,
      They have the same meaning, but “知道” is more formal than”晓得”.

  3. Dear Min Min.

    Have a question about the sentence 我没有其他要求.
    Isn’t it more common to use “其它” for things and “其他” for people and animals?
    Or these two are completely the same?

    Thank you for your website!

    1. Hi Alex,
      其它 – 同“其他”,但只用于事情。
      They are the same, only 其它 is used for things.
