Re: I think my chinese really sucks

Singapore publishers use Simplified Chinese (which is what you were taught in school)

Taiwan publishers use Traditional Chinese (which is also what Japan uses for Kanji)

It'd be a bonus to you if you learn to read both Traditional and Simplified. But if you think it is too much, just go for Singapore publishers like Chuang Yi.

Take it as a challenge, if you can master the dictionary it'd be another feather in your hat.

It is hard at first, but after you master the trick it is pretty easy.

Lets say you are finding 和, first divide it into the simplest possible radical which is 禾 and 口. Now go to the front of the book with the list of simple characters. 口 is simpler and more common, so try that first.

Flip to the 口 page with all the characters that have 口 in them somewhere. Take 和 and minus out 口 from the total strokes. Then count the remaining strokes (5 strokes) and look under the 5 strokes section.

和 should be there, if it isn't you can look under 禾 too.

There is no need to blame anyone. They were thinking of making Simplified Chinese so that it can compete with English since Traditional Chinese is a tough language to learn and to practice. Besides, 汉语拼音 is a great help especially to English speakers. Jumping into 汉字 first is like jumping into the deep end at the pool, you'd be more likely to drown without helping devices like 汉语拼音.

I don't think more Chinese lessons will make you a better Chinese Reader and Speaker, it is the attention and interest that you give to the lesson that makes the difference.

Traditional Chinese isn't hard to learn actually, if you are willing to spend time to learn
I think it is just that you all are so suited for Simplified Chinese already

汉语拼音 is beneficial for English speakers, indeed.
To me, 汉语拼音 confuses me at times, especially like zh- and z-, ch- and c, sh- and s- and etc. such things.
