Writing & Reading vs Speaking

Posted by chuckolate October 28, 2010 in the Group I Have a Question.

Hi,

I'm very new to chinese. My question is: should I learn to write and read in chinese (not pinyin) at the same time as I learn to speak? Or concentrate on speaking with the help of pinyin for prounonciation and afterward writing and reading.

Also, my girlfriend is taiwanese, so she learned in traditionnal chinese. Is there a big leap between the simplify chinese and traditionnal one?

Thanks!
