    Random new word of the day

    Here's mine:

    黑匣子 hēixiázi, black box (ie in a plane). I heard this in a report on the recent plane crash in Thailand and knew what it was from context, but don't remember seeing 匣子 before so looked it up to see what it was.

    What's yours? Characters, pinyin, meaning and source. We'll see how many we can get (probably one :lol:)

    I will be studying Mandarin Language course in Peking University this September so I inquired into Global Village accommodations. It seems that the accommodations there is in high demand and that because I inquired too late (first week of July), they no longer have an available room for me. So if ever you are interested in that, be sure to contact them very early for reservations. At least around 4 months before you term starts.
