Just wondering what you think of Chinese language, I mean, Mandarin.
Are there courses in Moscow? Is there interest and will to study it? Do you believe that it can be studied, with all its unusual grammar, pronunciation, four tones and scripture?

I study it myself, only by books and listening to radio stations, and after two years I understood basics of its inner mechanics. It is wonderful. Chinese is very natural language for our brain, it has fractal, tree-like structure, with tightly connected senses and meanings, something like net of neurons.
Sometimes (or often) it is vague and contextual, but it is special flavor in it.
It is not as scary as it looks from the first sight.
What do you think?
