If you make a mistake in English most people will at least get the gist however even the smallest  ...

This is particularly true of Chinese writing. It's why students have to learn so carefully and repetitively the correct order and direction of the brushstrokes they are using when writing Chinese calligraphy. Another aspect of this almost perfect writing style ( unless you want to wing out and write in a very artistic / impressionistic manner such as M. Zedong ) is that it's meant to reveal this very graceful and elegant aspect of Chinese culture.

The latter, however, doesn't work so well when you go to a bank, for example, and make any kind of tiny error in the writing of Chinese letters: the clerks will simply return it to you and say that it's not proper / correct and you might well have to get another copy of the cheque / withdrawal that you wish to transact.

That is why I leave my paperwork to the Chinese staff.

After nearly 17 years of going to China sadly my Chinese is ( and probably always will be ) terrible.
