  1. Hi Min Min

    Is there any way that I can get the daily lesson from you
    posted on your website instead of being sent to my email
    address? Then I can check it out on your site.

    If posted on your site, can you send out notification alert
    for these daily lessons?

    Is there an option also on your site if one does not know a
    certain Chinese word by keying some key words in English
    to get to it?

    One more thing. Please tell me how to use the keyboard to
    type Chinese characters quickly instead of guessing which
    keys to use.

    Thanks & Regards

  2. Hi Nin Min

    Thank you so much.

    I went to the first site you gave and there are so many options
    to choose from. But I clicked on this link:

    “Get Learn Chinese Everyday 每日学华语 delivered by email”

    And a window opened up and I entered my email address
    to submit and an activation email was sent to my address
    which I clicked to activate it.

    Is this what you mean by subscribing to your RSS feed?

    You said: “> Yes. You can try the Google search at the right panel.”
    Yes, I got it. Thanks.

    You said:
    > To type Chinese characters, you need to know Pinyin well.
    Here is the tool where you can type Chinese characters:
    http://www.learnchineseeveryday.com/tools/ime.php >

    Yes, I went to this site but it’s not what I’m looking for.
    I have the Microsoft built-in software in my C drive to
    type Chinese characters. What I have in mind is to identify
    the keys to type Chinese characters as quickly as I type
    Romanised characters.

    Like you said I got to know Pinyin well. I guess I got no
    choice but to learn it the hard the way, though.

    Thanks again for the help you can give me.

    Cheers.

    1. there are other methods to type Chinese, one which is already said is to use pinyin. And actually it isn’t at all hard to learn pinyin. That if you already know how to pronounce the word. Typing pinyin you don’t even have to care about the 声调。 Anyway I hope you eventually learn it, cheers~~

    Up to now, I don’t seem to see or get any daily lesson
    either into my email inbox or on your feed. The last lesson
    posted by you was dated 8 August entitled “Worksheet 64
    on 争 飞 原 王 求”

    Please tell me I I am missing something or your daily lesson
    is still not forthcoming. If yes, where do I get to see or check
    it out?

    Thanks & regards.

    1. Hi solo2205,
      That should be the correct way.

      Or alternatively, you can register and login through:
      http://www.learnchineseeveryday.com/wp-login.php
      Once you login, click on Subscriptions under Profile. Select all the Subscribed Categories, and click Update Preferences to save your settings.

      Please let me know if you still can’t get the daily lesson.

  4. Hi Min Min

    I think I got everything mixed up and now I got it.
    In fact, I have already registered previously under
    “solo2205” as my user ID and my display name is
    Βωων Κυαν and all the categories were all selected
    under profile.

    What I was actually trying to find is the daily lesson
    and this appears under “Archives” month by month
    which I overlooked.

    FYI, I am now going backwards to May 2009 lessons
    and working forward month by month because I only
    joined “每日学华语” this month [August]

    What I don’t want is the daily lesson email alert coming
    into mail inbox. Please tell me how to get rid of this daily
    alert while I still can get access to the daily lesson every
    day. Looking in the “archives”? Yes?

    Regards.
