Foreigners Asking for Directions in China // Soren Grzegorczyk

5 May , 2018  

这个视频是外国人在中国问路。我觉得这个视频很用因为我们这学期学习问路。视频的说话人一点难听懂,但是视频有中文字幕所以我们可以理解。在视频一个外国人问一个中国人怎么去车站。因为这个外国人说英文,所以这个中国人听不懂。但是,他们都进步所以他们终于相互理解了。虽然我需要看过视频几次才能理解,可是我觉得视频又信息又值得。这是很用的视频。

This video is about foreigners asking for directions in China. I think this video is very useful because we studied asking for directions this semester. The speaker in the video is a little hard to understand, but the video has subtitles so we can understand. In the video a foreigner asks a Chinese person how to get to the station. The Chinese person can’t understand because she’s speaking English. But, they both end up improving, so they are able to understand one another. Although I had to watch the video a few times to understand what was going on, I still think it’s very informative and useful. This is a very useful video.

CHINESE FOOD IN THE WEST: CURATION #2, ALAN RODRIGUEZ ESPINOZA

29 Apr , 2018  

在这部视频,两个男人讨论中国菜。俩人从美国和英国去中国了,在中国住了长久了。他们讨论西方的中国菜饭馆,做比了。这两个男人说美国的中国菜店比中国的菜店不一样。中国的中餐没有美国的中餐的甜味。美国的中餐比中国的中餐也太干了。两个人说了美国人不知道中餐、日本菜、韩国菜和越南菜不同。太多的美国人常常去中餐店,点寿司,太难为情了!俩男人也说了美国的中餐太贵了。比美国的,中餐在中国很便宜。我同意。上夏天,我去了上海,吃了很多的中国的小吃。在上海,食物太太便宜。还有一件事:种过没有签语饼!比美国的饭馆我最喜欢中国的菜店,但我超级喜欢签语饼。

In this video, two men discuss Chinese food. The two came to China from the United States and have lived in China for a long time. They discuss Chinese restaurants in the west and make comparisons. The two men say American Chinese restaurants and Chinese Chinese food restaurants are not the same. China’s Chinese cuisine is not as sweet as American Chinese food. American Chinese food is also drier than China’s Chinese food. Both men said Americans don’t know that Chinese food, Japanese food, Korean food and Vietnamese food are different. Too many Americans often go to Chinese restaurants and order sushi. Very embarrassing! The two men also said that American Chinese food is too expensive. Chinese food in China is cheaper than Chinese food in the United States. I agree. Last summer, I went to Shanghai and ate a lot of Chinese snacks. In Shanghai, food is very very cheap. One more thing: there are no fortune cookies in China! I like Chinese restaurants better than American restaurants, but I love fortune cookies.

In this video, you can see a couple traveling around in Shanghai. They to around many places to eat food. It shows many delicious snacks around Shanghai. You can also see the how they travel from place to place at Shanghai.  Introducing street name and how to get there. People could see some ancient building in this video. This video is great for our class because in one part of the video he talks about around direction. Which is something we are learning in class right now. Telling us how big and small the building is. Shanghai is a traveling spot for most people and i think that people would be interested to come to this place.

Say Something (Mandarin Version) by Jeri C [Chinese-Pinyin-English] By Jordan Price

28 Nov , 2017   Video

https://youtu.be/jKGrADWoNkM

 

这部影片是由艺术家“大世界”演唱的“说些什么”的中文版本。这个视频对于学习中文是非常有用的,因为当歌曲播放时,它会在屏幕上显示中文和英文的歌词。我们在这个学期学到的许多语法规则都用在这首歌中,比如“快译”,还有我们以前的几个词汇单词。由于这是一首美国知名的歌曲,所以它提供了一个独特的机会,可以更容易地学习和熟悉中文的特定词语和短语。

This video is the Chinese version of “Say Something”, sung by the artist A Great Big World. This video is very useful for learning Chinese because it shows you the lyrics in both Chinese and English on the screen as the song is playing. Many of the grammar rules we learned this semester are used in this song, such as 快要, and also several of our vocabulary words from previous lessons. Since this is such a well-known American song, it provides a unique opportunity to more easily learn and become comfortable with the specific words and phrases in Chinese.

House Poem by Huang Xiang

28 Nov , 2017   Video

Video:  https://vimeo.com/8560463

This video is fascinating because it is about a poet who moved to Pittsburgh, PA for freedom of speech in 1990’s. Huang Xiang fought for democracy in China until he was imprisoned. I think it would be interesting for students to go see this house to see how this poet described his journey. He was liberated when he arrived to America, and have been working on his poems. It is interesting to see how dominant the censorship is in China. This helps students to learn about Chinese history and how some people have coped with their strict rules.

 

这部影片令人着迷,因为它是关于一位诗人于二十世纪九十年代移至 Pittsburgh, PA 年的言论自由。黄翔在中国争取民主直到被囚禁。我觉得学生们去看看这个家看这个诗人如何描述他的旅程是很有意思的。他抵达美国后得到解放,一直在写他的诗歌。看看中国的审查制度是多么地有趣。这有助于学生了解中国的历史,以及一些人如何应对严格的规定。

旅游不怕没资料

25 Oct , 2017  

这个网站我是从百度搜索到的。它是一个旅游搜索网站。它可以提供资料关于不同的旅游地点比如机票、酒店、景点、 等等。如果出国旅行的话,这个网站还提供关于签证的信息。我们可以从这个网站里了解到不同地方的旅游景点和它们的文化。这个网站还可以让我们认识不同旅游需要的词汇。对于能看懂中文的人,这个网站上面的词汇不会那么的难。

I found this website by searching though BaiDu. This is a search website for traveling. It provides informations for different traveling destinations such as plane ticket, hotel, tourist spots, etc. If traveling out of the country, this website also provides information about how to obtain a visa. From this website, different vocabulary pertaining to traveling can be learned. For a person who can read Chinese characters, the vocabulary on this website is not very difficult.

Chinese Students Compare China and Taiwan

3 Oct , 2017  

by Alan Rodriguez Espinoza

这个视频有两个中国学生。这个学生在台湾学习了,说台湾和中国非常不同。比如,中国人不用钱,用 AlipayAlipay 是电话的应用软件。在台湾,人用现钱。

中国学生也说台湾的超商比中国的超商好多了,有产品有得很多。在台湾的超商台湾人可以买票,也可以打印。台湾和中国很不同!

 

There are two Chinese students in this video. These students studied in Taiwan and they say Taiwan and China are very different. For example, Chinese people don’t use cash. They use Alipay. Alipay is a smartphone app. In Taiwan, people use cash.

The Chinese students also say that Taiwanese convenience stores are much better than Chinese convenience stores. Taiwanese stores have a lot of products. In Taiwanese convenience stores, Taiwanese people can buy tickets and print. Taiwan and China are so different!
