Chinese for Beginners
Well begun is half done.
To start learning the Chinese language one should choose the right Chinese textbook for beginners. I tried plenty of them as many of you did, but I must confess that the best one is Open the Door to Chinese Book 1 by Polina Shinkina.

The textbook has different unique exercises, including those on the Chinese numerals, the Chinese Character Decomposition Guidance, List of Used Chinese characters with their meanings and vocabularies.

This Chinese textbook for beginners was written by a highly professional teacher who knows how to make complicated things very simple and understandable.

The preview and details of the textbook are available in Open the Door to Chinese Book 1 by Polina Shinkina http://www.lulu.com/content/e-book/open-the-door-to-chinese-book-1/18834317 and on http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/polina985

Just thought I'd say hi--I'm an incoming master's student in music theory, and I graduated last month from the University of Michigan (insert basketball joke here) Any other theory, or at least Jacobs, people here?

I was also going to post asking if I'm completely screwed because I don't have housing yet, but seeing as how every other post on here is about housing, I thought that would be kind of obnoxious. We're taking a trip to look at apts in mid-June and I've heard that, at least compared to Ann Arbor, the housing is dirt cheap (well, anything is cheaper than Ann Arbor) so I'm not terribly worried...yet...

It's nice to meet you all, and I'm sure I'll be bombarding you with more noob questions in the near future!

Housing near E 10th St
Hi everyone,

I'm a newly admitted graduate student from a neighboring state and I am, in a word, freaking out about housing. I don't know what the housing season is like in Bloomington, but I suspect that the longer it takes me to find a place, the less options I will have.

So to you kind Bloomingtonians (is this the correct word?), have you heard of any places available in the west IU area? I'm looking for a place near the Informatics building (E 10th St and Woodlawn) or the Business college.

Any help you can give will be appreciated!!

Current Mood: worried

*waves* I'm planning on attending IU this fall for grad school (speech and hearing sciences for the interested) and I'm checking out my housing options. I've lived in an apartment on campus at my current university for the past three years, but was wondering people's thoughts/experiences with the apartments on campus. I've looked at the information on the website and it leaves me lukewarm.

So what's the deal? Should I attempt to search for an apartment off campus from across the country (or attempt to fly down during the summer to find something)? Suck it up and go back to dorm life where I can't cook my own food? Or are the apartments on campus generally okay? Any information at all regarding campus housing would be greatly appreciated!

And while I'm here covering pointless minutiae (and to avoid spamming the comm), any thoughts on cell phone companies/coverage? For example, when I lived in Arkansas, Sprint was to be avoided because coverage sucked once you drove twenty minutes outside of town; while in Portland, Sprint is a great choice, but Qwest is to be avoided if you plan on driving anywhere outside of Portland that is not in a Seattle direction.

If you've made it to the end you deserve a cookie. So I will bake you some when I arrive (if I have a kitchen)? :D

Bloomington housing question
I am a grad student in my 30's moving to Bloomington this fall with my husband and a pet. I made a visit in January and have since returned to Alaska. I need to set up a rental before my arrival. Has anyone had experiences with renting through Millenium Property Management? They have several properties that look nice online. Feel free to email me directly.
