No, I can read some Chinese characters because I learned Japanese and their Kanji alphabet is very similar to Chinese, however I could not say it out loud. How about you? Can you speak Chinese? I would presume you can, as you asked the question.
My first question would be: which Chinese? A coworker once tried to teach me some Cantonese phrases, but I couldn't get the vowels and tonal rises right. I kept her in stitches with my horrific mispronunciations. Then another coworker (same office) tried to teach me some Mandarin -- more hilarity! They couldn't understand each other's Chinese, though, unless they spoke another Chinese that both knew a little bit. I forget what that one was called .. Wu, maybe? ..... So, nope. No Chinese from me! I know when I'm licked. :D
