Would it be possible for you to upload documents with the dialogues, including Chinese, Pinyin and English all together?
For example, using the dialogue above:
Wáng Lǎoshī,nínhǎo!
Teacher Wang, hello!

Lǐ ‘Ài,zǎoshàng hǎo!
Li Ai, good morning!

This would make it easier to print them out and use them for review. I like to print these and put them on my refrigerator, but it takes me a lot of time to copy the Chinese, then the Pinyin, then the English and then sort it all into the correct format. And if Chinese, Pinyin and English are all on separate documents it’s harder to use.
Thanks for reading this, and for the great content!

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
谢谢 Li 老师!

wakaoujiPremium Student April 21, 2020 at 12:58 pm

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?

david.rappoPremium Student October 28, 2019 at 1:17 am

The quality of this course is really good。真好!

MeZo _ ALameriStudent January 29, 2018 at 10:38 pm

hi lili … i am still confused about a sentences in part 1 when he asked her (您的生日是周六) but if i said (您的生日是星期六) does it still make sense or not

MichaelPremium Student August 25, 2017 at 6:05 am

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!

Hi Michael! The phrase “Happy Birthday” 生日快乐 shēng rì kuài lè is not taught in previous lesson so I marked it with Pinyin and English.
