Wow, my Chinese reading comprehension is rusty.

Using Chinese Tutor's flash card mode, I've determined that while a lot of it is really wedged deep inside my brain, I can still dredge out some of my written Chinese if asked. At least, that's my conclusion based on the fact that I managed to unlock 225 words by memory and context.

This is better than I assumed by about a factor of two, although I know some of the characters are ones I learned after my one year of college-level Mandarin. I was supposed to know more than this so I have clearly forgotten a lot.

Still, I pretty much just bulled my way through in a couple of hours of staring at the screen and guessing, so it's in there. It's not easy to access, but it's in there.

More work to be done here.
