      Hi Adam,
      We’re glad to hear that! We wanted this collection to be valuable to both new and experienced learners and speakers of Chinese, so the Pinyin and English translations should help to bridge the gap.

    I wish I had started learning to read Chinese when I was little. It would’ve saved me so much time as an adult working in China. At least knowing kanji helps.

      I feel the exact same way about a lot of things. I wish I had known what was going to interest me as an adult when I was still a kid. Language learning is so much easier when you’re younger.

    It took me a few years of studying Chinese before it suddenly clicked in my mind, especially listening to natural conversation. But once it clicks, it suddenly feels very natural. I swear, that feeling alone is worth all the hours of studying 👍

    The references to classic literature and poems are extremely helpful. Really glad I stumbled across this series – I’d been looking for a complete list of translated chengyu for ages, and these are nicely organized.
