Some thoughts on Chinese.

Postby Yaziq » Thu 09 Oct 2014 6:04 pm

I recently saw something I thought I would never see. That is, Cantonese written in simplified characters. However, that was only on one website. Cantonese is mostly written in traditional characters. My impression is that the overseas Chinese community uses traditional characters, but that may be changing. In the Chinese section of a public library in Maryland I saw a mixture of books in the two writing systems. When learning Mandarin which system would you study?
