Hi Lili!
I’m also slightly confused by a tiny detail: I thought you would rather use 早上 until around 9AM; but 王老师 answers once 现在早上十点零四分. Is this somehow just flexible, or should he rather have said 现在上午十点零四分?

Hi Lili: in Part 1, in the first part of the video where the dialogue is without pinyin, at 2:18 there is the phrase “Happy Birthday” where the pinyin is shown. The same phrase at 7:43 also shows the pinyin. Thanks!

您好, LiLi 老师,
What if I want to ask my friend’s birthday?
Can I say: 你的朋友的生日是几月几日? or
你朋友的生日是几月几日?
谢谢 Li 老师!
