Lesson Transcript

Anthony: Hi I am Anthony and I am here with my good friend Gayle.
Gayle: 大家好。
Anthony: Gayle, recently I went on this epic journey but to start this journey, I had to start off from the
Gayle: 火车站。
Anthony: That’s right. The train station here in China is filled with all sorts of interesting characters.
Gayle: 很多人。很多很多人。
Anthony: That’s right. Everybody and their mother ______ (0:00:47) was trying to get on this train but that’s okay because I have my ticket in hand.
Gayle: 你在火车上做了什么?
Anthony: Well I had a lot of options to choose from. A) I did a lot of sleeping B) I stared out the window a lot.
Gayle: 然后?
Anthony: Kick back a few beers and then stared out the window some more and before I knew it, I had arrived in Shiyan.
Gayle: 西安。
Anthony: So I wanted to go buy some stuff.
Gayle: 买东西。

Gayle: 啊,这是肯尼基。
Anthony: That’s right. I found Kenny Gs #1 fan and this guy was wailing and I had to join in with my dance moves. So if you want to get your groove on, you should go to

Great video: I disagree with the previous comments. Learning Putonghua is more than vocabulary, tones, and hanzi. It is also about understanding the cultural elements of Zhongwen that make it such an amazing language. Please continue to post similar video about Zhongguo shenghuo..

Yes, I agree, this is a nice video, but few words in Chinese and too fast, I think can be made better next time, by the way , it is a nice video anyway!

This was a nice video as an ad for ChinesClass101 but wasn't

really good for learning Chinese. There was too much English

and the Chinese went by so fast I couldn't learn anything.

Also, the Chinese wasn't always displayed on the screen.
