I am realizing that I tend to mess up characters that look very similar. I am sure that quite a few people have that problem, but it really bothers me. One stroke added and it's a completely different word! Anyway, Memrise is always a bit of a slog, but feels good when I finish it each day.
Pimsleur added a bit more today, this time introducing the word 想 (xiang3) which means to think, or to like to. The sentences that were practiced in the lesson were ones like 你想吃一点儿东西吗？ 我不想，可是我想喝一点儿东西。 Basically, that means, Do you want something to eat? I don't, but I would like something to drink. Chinese is interesting in that it can be very complicated, but very simple at the same time. It's tricky like that. More tomorrow!
