兰兰のダンスが圧巻です。


Hello everybody, 欢迎大家收看今天的成长汉语. It’s great to be here with all of you for another episode of Growing up with Chinese.

上次我跟大家说了可以去听一听中国的音乐. Did any of you manage to find some good Chinese music to listen to? Well don’t worry if you didn’t. Because today, 兰兰 is going to give us an impromptu*1 performance. Indeed, our topic is still music although our focus would be on the ways you can praise someone in Chinese. 不错吧, 那咱们就开始吧. Let’s first check in with our fabulous trio, and see just what’s going on.

大家好, hi everyone it’s great to see you all here for today’s episode of Growing up with Chinese. 欢迎收看今天的成长汉语.

To just think that even fifteen years ago, cyber communication didn’t exist. It kind of blows your mind*1, no? It’s rare to run into people these days who don’t know how to navigate the internet and send emails and the like*2 but they do still exist and actually today’s dialogue is proof of that. 小明’s dad is having some computer issues but thankfully, 小明 is there to give him a helping hand. Let’s take a look at the dialogue and find out just exactly what’s going on.

*1:blow one’s mind ひどく驚かせる

色々と謎の残る回でした。


Good buddy, 大家好, 欢迎收看成长汉语. Welcome back to another episode of Growing up with Chinese.

Now did the last show’s computer vocabulary settle into a more permanent spot in your heads? Technical vocabulary can be a bit tough to tackle just because it isn’t necessarily something you use everyday. However computers and the internet are certainly a big part of many people’s daily routines. So I’m glad we got a chance to cover some of the basics in Chinese.

Now today’s topic is a bit more light-hearted; we will be talking about music. But before we go any further, let’s check in with our fabulous trio and see just exactly what it is they’re up to.
