I think Chinese in some small* way, resembles Japanese.
Doctor in Chinese and doctor in Japanese sound almost similar ^^

I can help with Chinese too, if you like, though I only know basic words enough to get you through everyday life.. XD

Here're some daily-used words/phrases, i guess.. please correct me if im wrong tho.. Oh yeah, i won't be using chinese characters, just typing the way they're pronounced.

My name's ***, nice to meet you - Ni hao, wo shi ***

Doctor - Yi sheng

I love you - Wo ai ni

Bye - zai jian

Thank you - Xie xie ni

Hello - Ni hao(yes, it can be used here too)

Hello(greeting someone on the phone)? - Wei?

These are my contributions for today, lol.. >_<"
Note: Chinese words are categorized into different pitches, as in normal, high, low, and sharp(or something along those lines >_>")

You mixed up Cantonese and Mandarin Heheh. Yi Sheng is Cantonese. Da fu is Mandarin. The others are fine.

Ignore him. He`s not Japanese, and is a troll.

I`m actually quite interested in Chinese. One of my best friends is originally from Taiwan.
