Traditional, represent.. :D

I'm not completely literate (lacking in vocabulary) but fluent in speaking/listening. I can read most commonly used words/phrases and for everything else, there's contextual clues and radicals.

I use simplified more than traditional but since most of my manga are in traditional chinese I often get to read traditional 8D;;

my grandpa is Chinese well... Jamaican but his parents were Chinese so they taught him and he taught me just a little, can't say I know the language well enough, just enough to read the menu when I go to an authentic Chinese restaurant in China Town :XD:
