Almost each Chinese character is one picture that is worth one thousand English words! I have some blogs and threads on such topic and I wish they would be helpful for your interest on our mother-language!

To me, I learnt Chinese and English at about the same time. It was difficult because of my dialetic speaking environment. At times, expression did made understanding less easy. Fortunately, with the Internet, interactive along with audio pronunication was less difficult. Recitation helps. Writing is still less easy due to the way an expression in English may not have close parallel. Hope you could help out on this aspect. Thank you!

Thanks for your warmth!I wish so!
Some of my fellow Chinese friends think  our national culture is so rich and deep that it is not easy for us to introduce it to the world!
On one hand, our traditional thinking way is different from foreign one!  You can see that through the different explainings to the same words by the dictionaries of different nations!
On the other hand, Chinese scholars may offer you different sayings about the same poem even to an ordinary text that may  puzzle me  for a long time!

You have made me think about different English translations I have seen of classical Chinese works such as the Dao De Jing.  The fact that they are so different shows the difficulty of translating classical Chinese thought into a western language.  I think that I will write a blog comparing different translations of, say, a sample of the Dao De Jing.
