http://www.globalfromasia.com/start-learning-chinese-norajoy-wilson-gfa65/ What is your 2015 new years resolution? Mine is to improve my Chinese past "survival" mode of eating and basic travel... And I am lucky enough to cooperate now with WrittenChinese.com and had Nora on the podcast for the last episode of the year giving all of us some pointers. I don't want to spoil it, but for sure I will work on improving my attention paying skills to characters!

I've been experimenting and actually enjoying doing video "blogging" as I wonder in various areas in Shenzhen these days. The famous electronics market, Hua Qiang Bei, is one I cannot stop thinking about to get into the video series.

Huaqiangbei, literally translated as Huaqiang North is a technically name of a road in the central area of Shenzhen city, it is also an important commercial area of Shenzhen. enormous Hua Qiang Bei electronic district for good wholesale prices on components or complete products.

In Hua Qiang Bei, there are a half million people go in and out per day, so when you get there, what you see will be GEEKS (electronics products people), and you’d better take care of your belongings. You can also buy fapiao (tax receipts) off the market too, will hear tons of women whispering (or sometimes yelling) fapiao, fapiao!

This is by far the biggest market of its kind I have encountered and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is the worlds largest

+Michael Michelini Great video! I have been working here for a year. I go to work in the office in the day time. And I go to the market to source for my online store when I'm off work at the evening. Well, what I wanna say is I know the Market very well, I am totally GEEKS. And Michael, you should also do a video in Shui Bei in your future videos. Shui Bei is the largest jewelry market in China even in the world. I believe that you will make another shocked video there.
