I've studied Mandarin (with Traditional Chinese characters) for a few years. I have a very difficult time deciphering the simplified chinese characters. Can anyone recommend an online or offline resource which gives a "crash course" in simplified Chinese if you already know some traditional characters? This would go a long way in helping me to read menus and signs on my trip!
travellevret, do I stump you with this question? ;) You would probably be saving me from starving and getting lost.
