A Letter From China

Mandarin House language schools in Beijing and Shanghai - Click for Website
Mandarin House are one of the foremost language schools in China with offices in Beijing and Shanghai. They have a dedicated Facebook blog supplementing their standard website, where they present Chinese Corners - featuring contributions from their students, patrons, friends and associates.

You may know Facebook is banned in China? (Twitter, Youtube also), so we will reproduce some of their contributions for those readers who do not have access. Originally Published:

Yìwén—kǒngzǐ shuō:“zhīdào tā de rén bùrú xǐhuān tā de rén,
喜欢 它 的 人 不如以 它 为 快乐 的 人。”

One with understanding is not as good as one with interest,
which in turn is not as good as doing something one enjoys.
