我是在Coimbra (葡萄牙)出生的。在那里住十万个人, 也有一个很老的大学。大学很有名。我在那里学了四年。现在我不在那里主,但是我每月两个次回来。为的是我爸爸妈妈和奶奶都主在那里。我想Coimbra很美, 你呢?

Beginner Chinese uncensored! No Google translation and no dictionary. Corrections welcome! Please!  know that I'm still at a very low level but I think I'm making some progress. I've never progressed so slowly in a language before and sometimes it's a "bit" exasperating. But the feeling of understanding something or being able to communicate an idea (even when the grammar is wrong) is a really powerful one. .
The caption in Chinese is about my hometown,  Coimbra, and how I still visit my family there twice a month. .

And this time a #german word: #freizeitbeschäftigung . What a long word just to say "hobby"! You can make it even longer if you're specifying your "favourite hobby": Lieblingsfreizeitbeschäftigung! (Literally: favourite free time occupation)
.
But if you find"Freizeitbeschäftigung" too complicated just use the synonym "Hobby"!
German is awesome!

And that's how you say #doctor in Mandarin! 医 means doctor or medicine. e.g
 医院 means hospital (medicine + public place). 生 is a suffix used in names of occupations. It also means to give birth to and to be born.

How I choose to #relax after almost 12 hours at work. Sometimes I wonder whether it's healthy... .

If I was an anime I'd be this one.  She's called Taiga! She's support short too xD I think she has a bad temper but I don't watch anime so I'm not sure!
Do you have any anime character that looks like you? .

That's how you say #daughter and #son in #mandarin !
The 女 character means female (my former Chinese teacher used to say that it looked like a woman with a child in her arms... well don't get me started on gender roles! xD).

...and they ask whether Portuguese and Spanish are almost the same language. Yes they're very similar but there are also many differences.  I'm reading a novel in Spanish (la sombra del viento) and these are some of the words I've looked up in the dictionary. 
I can't explain why but Spanish words always sound so colourful - what a synaesthetic comment!!
