Lesson Transcript

Anthony: Hi I am Anthony.
Lanzi: 大家好,我是Lanzi。
Anthony: And the train has just dropped me off in a little town on the Chinese Mongolian border called Erlian.
Lanzi: 二连
Anthony: And I had an empty stomach. So I heard that this town has really good dumplings.
Lanzi: 饺子。
Anthony: I ran into a couple of people from 宁夏
Lanzi: 哦,宁夏来的人。
Anthony: And they were really into drinking games.
Lanzi: 哈哈,他们很爱猜拳。
Anthony: And you are going to find drinking games played basically everywhere in China, isn’t that right?
Lanzi: 对,对。非常流行。
Anthony: And what do Chinese people usually drink when they go out?
Lanzi: 呃,他们喜欢喝二锅头。
Anthony: Okay yeah and this stuff is pretty heavy.
Lanzi: 对,至少有40度。
Anthony: Yeah at least 40 proof alcohol.
Lanzi: 诶,你也在猜拳。
Anthony: Yeah I am getting involved in the festivities playing a game called 15-20.
Lanzi: 啊,十五二十。
Anthony: That’s right.
Lanzi: 诶,你输了吗?
Anthony: Yeah I lost. So the next morning I get up luckily without a hangover and I got to get to the border as fast as I can.
Lanzi: 嗯,赶去。
Anthony: And there is two ways that you can get to the border. One is by taxi.
Lanzi: 打的。
Anthony: Which will cost you about 10 quay each way.
Lanzi: 啊,十块钱。
Anthony: And for the more frugal travelers, you can take the city bus for 1 quay.
Lanzi: 好便宜啊。
Anthony: Yeah very cheap and actually it was a nice view and it was a nice ride out there.
Lanzi: 诶,还有彩虹。
Anthony: Yeah this was the very welcoming border crossing out in the middle of nowhere and…
Lanzi: 真的什么都没有。
Anthony: And it was kind of interesting to see that this border was really heavily fortified.
Lanzi: 对,诶,还有军人。
Anthony: Yeah they have a couple of soldiers. I think they are playing the game of soccer, I don’t know. Well join us next week as I cross into Mongolian territory and make sure to visit us at chineseclass101.com, sign up for your free lifetime subscription. I am Anthony.

Hi Daniel

I think today it's really essential to keep learning, either languages or tech stuff.

Thanks for your post.

I'm going through the video series slowly and they seem perfectly in order on ChineseClass101.com. I am studying two languages and three technology subscription sites, so I may never get to the last episode. 😅

The 3rd installment of the Mongolian Series airs in 2 weeks. Yes, we have released the first 2 videos on our Youtube channel. However, wee have to release them in sequential order on ChineseClass101.com. Sorry for the delay.

oh my goodness! You guys keep doing re-runs...and you've shown this episode at least two or three times. Everytime I think "okay, finally the next installment of the Mongolia series" , but then I watch and find out it's either the first or second episode again. The third episode never came out, and it's been almost a year.

This is turning into the lamest Mandarin site on the internet:sad:
