I, like most people who use Chinese, can recognize more characters than I can generate on the fly.* So I'm using its predictive abilities to create intelligible sentences.
Apparently many of us do this. It is a huge help with a language that can severely tax memory.
This is more and better practice in written Chinese than I've gotten in years, possibly ever.
I haven't tried actually talking with anyone else yet. I think I need to work up to that.
*Possibly this is just an artifact about how our brains process written language.
