Heather, we might have an easier time flying to China and finding someone who speaks english. Do you have your passport? :rollhappy:

How about Japanese? I have a lot of really nice Japanese journals, but I have no idea what they say. I just look at the photos but some of the articles seem really interesting (at least i think they are interesting!)

I'm serious!
There's a guy at the orchid source forum - Rainforest - I think his first name is Peter, and he is in Borneo. I saw a while back that he posted a message in English on the Chinese Paph. forum. I thought perhaps I could do that too- except I don't know what buttons are the ones I need to use to register! :rollhappy:

Those people over there post the nicest photos!

I just went over there and tried to register. I couldn't figure it out either. It's like the whole site is written in Chinese or something.

I know a little but only how to order food, only the ones that I like of course. Trying to order food in chinatown in english is a nightmare!

I do know where you can start to learn though Heather. But lots and lots of fortune cookies. Those ones that teach you a word in chinese printed on the back of the fortune :poke:

I got it posted!
Thanks guys!!

I even translated what I wanted to say into Chinese - I thought it might be kind of rude to put it just in English, so I put it in both languages. Neat-o! Hope it works!

I took German in high school. We had about 600-700 in our graduating class. And there were only 9 people in the class from freshman to senior year. I always came out of that class with a soar throat.
