For me, a Polish student, the best of the ten words is 瓷器 cíqì. We have similar sounding consonants. It may be funny, but the pronunciation of 瓷器 is so close to the way we speak to a cat to get it to come to eat. We say: 'cici-cici-cici'. This is how I will remember 瓷器 forever from now on :))

Thank you for much for your beautiful video!
