Hi Arthur,


Thank you very much for your suggestion, we'll put it into consideration for our next layout revamp. Meanwhile, please use the Lesson Note to see the Hanzi and pinyin on the same page.

Keep up the good work! :thumbsup:

Just a general comment not specific to this lesson.


I think it would be really helpful to have the option of having the hanzi and pinyin appear together.

As the system is now you must choose between the options of hanzi, pinyin or English.


Sometime I wish to only see the hanzi, sometime I wish to see the pinyin, but sometime it would be really helpful to have the pinyin immediately underneath the hanzi.


Surprised you haven't thought of this yet.

Perhaps there are technical reasons why you don't do this.

Hi Khiem,


Thank you very much! Sorry for the technical problem, we have re-uploaded the mp3 with the correct pinyin section.


Thanks again for pointing that out.

Hi Olivia,


When I download the mp3 and view the text on my ipod, this is what I see:




----Simplified ----


来一个宫爆鸡丁吧。

我们已经点了鱼香肉丝。

两个都好吃。

都是酸甜的,我们来个蔬菜吧。

宫爆鸡丁就算蔬菜,有大葱。

拜托......


----English----


Let's have a Gongbao Chicken.

We've already ordered fish-flavored shredded pork.

Both are delicious.

They are both sweet and sour, let's get a vegetable.

Gongbao Chicken is a vegetable, it got onion in it.

Oh please...


----Pinyin----


Wǒ gàosu guò nǐ zuò dìtiě.

Chūzūchē yīnggāi kuài láile.

Yǐjīng bàn ge xiǎoshí le.

Zài děng wǔ fēnzhōng.

Gēnběn méi chē, wǒmen zuò bāshì ba!

āi , nàr yǒu yī ge... biérén dǎ le.



Note that the pinyin in the PDF is correct, this is just for the text encoded within the mp3.

Hi Khiem,


Thanks for the note, but unfortunately we cannot locate the mistake, can you be more specific please?


And yes 宫爆鸡丁 and 宫保鸡丁 are actually the same, and no one knows exactly which one is the correct one.

Just a note: the pinyin with the mp3 is for lesson 10.


I laughed when I heard that gong bao chicken was laowaicai (老外菜, if that's spelled correctly). It's certainly my favourite...


Actually, I notice you write it with a 爆 ("quick-fried;burst"), but I've also seen it written with 保 ("protect"). That's the one I learned first because of the story that it was invented by a "palace guardian".


I take this is why you can use both third and fourth tones?


Khiem.

Great lesson! I love how they cover the cultural part too, which I consider really important as well. If I ever travel to China, now I know what to order that's safe and surely delicious. Chicken cubes with peanuts sounds so yummy! I'd really like to try it out:)
