Some of the More Compicated Characters/Words I've Learned

The following are some of the more pain in the arse Chinese characters for me to master:

The Chinese character(s) - the pinyin pronunciation and tone - the English meaning

警察 - jing3cha2 - police or police officer

- ying2 - to win

锻炼 - duan4lian4 - to exercise

魅力 - mei4li - charm

糟糕 - zao1gao1 - awful

整理 - zheng3li3 - to order/arrange

- zui3 - mouth

擅长 - shan4chang2 - to be good/skilled at x

Depending on what day you ask me, I should theoretically be able to write all of these off the top of my head. They're all currently in my SuperMemo regime.

Yes, I am insane.
