A little help with characters...!

大家好! Just subscribed today! I'm really excited because I've been listening to these podcasts a lot lately, but never had the chance to subscribe. I'm glad I did!

Ok, so I just got back from living in Taiwan for two years (and just like Amber, I'm going to have to adjust my 說法 a little bit. Ok.. maybe more than just a little bit). But as you know in Taiwan, they only use traditional characters (繁體字。 《這個你們看得懂嗎? 哈哈) I'm going to continue studying Chinese, but I know that studying simplified characters will be a lot more advantageous. I have a little over 2,000 characters memorized, and I'm trying to find out the tips and tricks of how to recognize simplified characters with a traditional character background. Does anyone have any similar experiences? Or is it just 'hey, just get used it to it!' type deal? Let me know!
