Will Moss, aka “The Imagethief” has a great post on how to learn Chinese online. Like me, he finds the average Chinese portal to be …. well, cluttered.
“Clicking into your average Chinese portal or social networking site is like being dropped into the Web equivalent of a raging, psychedelic pachinko parlor. The page scrolls on forever, there are countless hundreds of links, boxes, windows and options, and every other thing blinks, waves or breaks loose and starts gliding across the page. If you read Chinese laboriously and slowly, like me, this is extra painful.”
