Taffy, :notworthy:
"I wanted to be puzzled and charmed, to experience the endless, beguiling variety of a continent where you can board a train and an hour later be somewhere where the inhabitants speak a different language, eat different foods, work different hours, live lives that are at once so different and yet so oddly similar. I wanted to be a tourist," Bill Bryson.
"...But I ended up in Taiwan," Lili.

Never underestimate how much assistance,
how much satisfaction,
how much comfort,
how much soul and transcendence there might be
in a cold bottle of beer.

I suggest adding this to the online resources: ... index.html
I think it is useful expecially for people who can already read bopomofo or any other pronunciation system (you can choose it). Personally I prefer bopomofo.
The website has other resources for beginners, even if it is not very user friendly.
The 1000 words can also be downloaded as pdf. Since it is difficult to find, this is the link ... 8-1000.pdf
