    I ran into this site today, and had problems leaving it. If you haven't tried http://www.memrise.com, I would give it a shot.

    The Forbidden City and surroundings looks totally like a CPU ... I thought it was one.Generic Forum Image

    @Richard.Hein: That was my first thought too. This is the image for surround, when you put jade inside, you get a kingdom. Jade is based on the symbol for king. The middle kingdom is china and the beautiful kingdom is the USA, go figure.

    You can turn an animal into food by putting it in a glass jar. Big looks like a man holding his arms out. For whatever reason, they also teach you what a corse looks like.

    that's supposed to be mouth LOL.

    Like 嘴. I吃  all mouth based because it has mouth on the side. You don't eat using surround LOL.

    @magicalclick: mouth 口 looks a lot like surround 囗. I'm having a difficult time seeing the difference.

    @JoshRoss:

    Because it is the same word. It is supposed to be mouth, not surround. Surround is more like those IE missing picture red-X box where you replace red-X, like 國, 圍. Without the things inside 口, it is mouth. Like the image has stuff inside. 口 has no stuff inside. Big difference.

    No worries. When you read the silmilar samples on a street in China, it is 99% mouth. 囗(Surrond) is seldomly used. Tongue Out

    Or when surround is finally used, it doesn't look like 囗 anymore. Wink
