    Question for Learn Chinese Skype :Why are the Greek and Chinese words for typhoon so similar?This is an interesting question to learn Chinese Skype.For all my 20 minutes of research…There are two theories. One is that it travelled from Greek (τυφών- teephon) to Arabic tûfân then Persian and Hindi finally reaching Malaysia and China. There it was picked up by the Portguese (tufão ) and returned to Europe.
    The second theory is that it’s a Chinese word as Mingjie Li states and that was picked up by the Portuguese.
    I don’t believe in coincidence. If it was just a word that sounded the same I may have agreed. But Typhon’s sad story[1] of being kept under an island spewing lava and vapor (remember that real typhoons are very scarce and much smaller in the mediterrenean sea) leads me to believe that the first theory is correct. Plus, the same word appears in languages from Greece to the Middle East to Persia to India. Very few (if any) Chinese words made that trip back to Greece.Interesting to know when learn Chinese Skype.

    Learn Chinese Skype Class question : What does this Chinese word "狗血” mean in English? I was shocked by this question in our Learn Chinese Skype class by Len。 He does know a lot about Chinese.Well, here is the story:In ancient Chinese culture, (black) dog blood was considered the antidote of black magic. There are many records on this in historical notes and fiction works.

    In a modern context, 狗血 (dog blood) means something unbelievably cliche/ embarrassing/maladroit/exaggerating that needs to be neutralized with dog blood.

    An alternative explanation is that it is developed from an old saying 洒狗血 (spray dog blood) in the old time for the actors of Peking Opera. It’s quite a humiliating way to criticize an actor for acting in a contrived and theatrical way on the stage in order to draw attention. It originally meant someone who intentionally put dog blood on his/her body or spill it on the ground to fake bleeding.Learn Chinese SKype slang is really fun.

    Learn Chinese Skype tips for HSK IV :What hacks can I use to quickly memorize all vocabulary terms and their uses in sentences for the HSK 4 exam? As someone who's studied multiple languages and had to learn a LOT of vocabulary words, these are my suggestions to maximum your effectiveness, minimize the time spent, and make learning new vocab easier when you learn Chinese Skype for HSK4 exams.
    1. Relate new information to material already learned. This is sometimes called “scaffolding.” There are many ways to integrate new items with familiar material. The more connections you can make, the stronger your foundation.
    •Create either a concept map or a table to analyze parts of characters or group similar characters together. The key is to make the clusters meaningful. Some ideas for creating clusters include
    ◦Words that fit into the same pattern
    ◦Words sharing the same root
    ◦Words sharing the same phonetic component (similar pronunciation)
    ◦Words sharing any other component
    ◦Words or characters with a shared idea (such as “places,” “colors,” “activities involved in studying,” “polite language,” etc.)
    •Create a top-down hierarchical chart breaking a complex words into smaller, meaningful components.
    •Create mnemonic devices to remember harder words.

    Learn Chinese Skype tips for HSK IV for those who are preparing for Chinese exams while learning Chinese Skype classes:
    3. Read your study material out loud, rather than silently in your head. This way you can get the feel for the words on your tongue and find words you haven’t quite mastered yet to learn Chinese Skype.

    4. Studying a little every day is more effective than studying for a long period. It’s impossible to learn a language by studying only once a week, even if the study period is very long. Studying one to two hours each day will make it easy for you to memorize more efficiently, instead of cramming hundreds of words in every day to speed through the process.

    5. To learn new vocabulary, using several short sessions (a few minutes at a time) is more effective than using one long session. You can use the time while riding the bus, eating breakfast, waiting for class to begin, waiting in line at the grocery store, and even walking across campus, to review new words.

    Learn Chinese Skype tips for HSK IV for those who are preparing for Chinese exams while learning Chinese Skype classes:
    6. The only way to learn words are to memorize them. Writing will enable you to use motor memory for recall; otherwise words can be quickly forgotten. Rather than writing one word many times before doing the next one, write each word once or twice then go through the whole list again until you’ve done the required number of repetitions. This will put the new words more firmly in your memory.
