If you are a parent considering teaching your children Mandarin as a second language, you may wonder if Mandarin is a difficult language for children, rather than a language closer to their native language. Why is the plural of “dogs” in English “ dogs and the plural of “mouse” “mice”? To express something in the plural in Mandarin Chinese, you simply add the word corresponding to the number of the member. In Mandarin Chinese, we usually join words together to form a new word with a fairly obvious meaning. You might think that Chinese is pretty intimidating compared to, say, Spanish or French, because you have to write characters and the manner of speaking is unfamiliar. If you made it to the end of this article and changed your mind about the intimidating nature of learning Chinese, we want to assure you that there is no reason for them or you to feel intimidated. Pinyin is an intuitive and easy way for English speakers to learn spoken Chinese. Students learning languages such as English, Spanish, or French need to distinguish which verb forms to use according to topic and time. With four tones and pinyin, you can accurately pronounce any Chinese character. Chinese pinyin is a system based on the Latin letters that China uses today to denote the pronunciation of Chinese characters. Pinyin also gives you a visual representation of what Chinese sounds like. When you learn pinyin, you train your mind to process the sounds and your mouth to pronounce them.
Redemption came four years later when they won the tournament in Chile, their first championship in 32 years. That year Argentina hosted the Copa America for the first time in 28 years. Brazil had dominated the tournament for years, winning four of the five games in 1997, 1999, 2004 and 2007, when it was decided that the tournament would no longer be held in the same country every four years. At that point, CONMEBOL decided to return to a host country and a biennial tournament. A tough loss to Honduras in 2001 prevented the tournament from being held for a fifth consecutive year and allowed host country Colombia to win its first championship. In the anniversary edition of the tournament, Chile won, becoming the fourth country to win the championship in a row. While this is impressive, they are still behind Argentina, which has won 14 times, and Uruguay, which has won the tournament the most times, 15. In this post, I’ll give an overview of the tournament and share some highlights from this year as we prepare for the quarterfinals. Speaking of the first matches, 2015 was Chile’s seventh time hosting the tournament. It happened for several years in a row, then there was a two-year break, then a four-year break, then another two-year break, and then it went on every year for several years in a row.
Froglike, in my opinion, meets most of the criteria for a near-perfect mobile game: it’s easy to play with one hand in portrait mode; it can be played for a few spare minutes here and there as well as for long, focused sessions; it has a progression system where you’re always working on something meaningful, even if you have a few “oh, I’m going to die” turns; and it has the eternal “easy to play, but hard to master” cliche. Froglike tries to answer the question, “What if Frogger was a roguelike?” and it succeeds, blending fun action gameplay with a solid progression system and roguelike elements. The goal of each level is to get to a large special lily pad, which grows in number as you stay on it, reminiscent of the land-grabbing mode of a multiplayer game. The point of playing Froglike is to constantly avoid getting killed by trying to stay on the big lily pad long enough to activate the next level. Each level consists of a grid with randomly placed floor tiles, also known as lilies, and your nameless frog hero can move to any of these tiles using cardinal points. “Standing still” and “dodging a constant barrage of attacks from all directions” are diametrically opposed goals, and it’s this back-and-forth movement that makes the Toad game so much fun. It takes a few turns before everything falls into place, but when it does, Froglike is highly addictive, and since it’s free, there’s no reason not to try it. When the water lily reaches a certain number, a warp appears and you move on to the next level, pausing briefly to select a random bonus. When Jimjum Studios announced their new game Froglike and said it was a roguelike about a frog, I was thrilled with the title alone. In places where only water separates parts of the level, tree trunks roll and, if you have the right time, you can use them to cross these water channels. Where there are no lilies, there is water, and even if you are a frog, you won’t want to jump in the water. The game has lots of cool power-ups that you can unlock and improve, as well as lots of cool skins for your nameless frog hero. When Froglike officially released on iOS and Android this week, I couldn’t wait to see if the gameplay would live up to its ridiculous name. There’s also a multiplier effect: the longer you stay on the lily without interrupting, the faster your score grows. There is no IAP in the game, only video ads for doubling rewards or respawning after a kill and random intermediate ads, so everything is earned by the game, and the ads are easy enough to ignore, although an IAP to remove them would be greatly appreciated. These items are unlocked by passing certain stages or with “crowns,” which are the currency of the game.
Instead of news and reviews, Ludology co-founder Jeff Engelstein‘s Dice Tower podcast that explores the math and science behind games. Episodes of GameTek Classic were broadcast on the Dice Tower podcast, and other GameTek episodes were recorded specifically for Ludology.

We discuss this at length with game designer and graphic artist Daniel Solis in Ludology 204 – The Eyes Have It. 46m41c: Pillars of the Earth is Ken Follett’s famous book and a solid board game in which workers are arranged in a certain order.

It’s both a great puzzle game and a good way to enter the complex world of Project Touhou video games. It’s pretty easy at first, as you only have to deal with a small number of stations and types of passengers, but the more you play each map, the more difficult the task becomes. No list of great puzzle games would be complete without the most popular game of the genre. There are many multiplayer modes and options, and you can choose to play by the rules of 2 or Fever, two of the most popular versions of the game. But Touhou Spell Bubble does its best to justify its price: addictive gameplay inspired by the classic Puzzle Bobble series, an engaging story, a soundtrack that blends well with the game mechanics, and plenty of power-ups to unlock. You’ll learn how to play, you’ll have plenty of puzzles and challenges to solve, but eventually you’ll want to compete against other players to get the most out of the game. This Switch version includes the base game, new levels inspired by Super Mario Odyssey, and is the only version of the game with DLC that adds even more interesting stuff. Although this game has only recently become popular in the West, in Japan it has long been a staple of the competitive world of puzzle games. The game of Tetris takes some getting used to, but once you understand how to make and throw combos, you won’t want to give up. In some ways, it’s the most expensive game on this list, and I understand that it can be hard to convince people that a real puzzle game is worth today’s high price tag. There is a solution for that. Write in the comments and share with us your favorite puzzle games for Switch. The idea is that you have to stack pieces to create larger values until you can match two 500 pieces by removing them from the playing field. As with many other puzzle games from the90s, the real appeal of the game is in creating combos. Hamster’s Arcade Archives series has a lot of fun puzzles from different eras of arcade games. The only thing missing is online multiplayer, which is a big omission considering how much fun local multiplayer is.

Throughout China has different approaches to bathing, from a quick rinse to a public bath followed by a relaxation session, a massage, or a sauna to combat fatigue. The fact is that everything that happens during bath time, whether it’s a public bath or turning up the heat at home, for the vast majority of Chinese people happens at night, not in the morning. Since many people feel rejuvenated when they are clean, those who want an extra boost of energy in the morning can use the bath or shower to get ready for the next work day. When I get home after work, I often take a hot bath, especially in the evening, to relieve the fatigue of the day’s work, relax and stimulate circulation in the body. However, many non-Chinese people prefer to take a bath as part of their morning ritual, which helps them wake up and welcome the new day, and allows them to be clean and refreshed when meeting other people. I usually shower in the morning because it gives me more energy to work through the day. Many foreigners exercise in the morning and clean up afterwards, a trend that is also gaining momentum in major Chinese cities. Taking a hot bath after coming home from work can wash away the fatigue of the day. Thank you for signing up for a free 1 on 1 live lesson on eChineseLearning!
