This video shows a native English speaker asking Chinese people how to pronounce and write different Chinese characters. I really liked this video because it shows you that everyone has problems with Chinese. Students often struggle with Chinese because of the different tones and characters but don’t worry Chinese people are to. It’s more of an encouraging video to those studying. I also liked his point at the end of the video about learning traditional Chinese and his comparison to it for English.
A Bright World is a large Chinese talk show. It aired on April 16th, 2015 on Jiangsu TV. Based off of the South Korean JTBC show “Non Summit”, the players talked about their home countries but in a lighthearted and funny atmosphere. They are asked to discuss the issues related to young people in China today. I think this TV show is very good. Because I am a Chinese student, “A Bright World” is particularly interesting to see other foreigners speak Chinese very well! I learned a lot of new words and practiced my listening comprehension.
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.

My Teletandem partner, Amber, shared this song with me. Amber says this band is very famous in Taiwan. Everybody loves listening to their music. This song is called “Cheers”. When Taiwanese people, Chinese people and other people that speak Chinese are drinking beers, they often say “cheers!” to celebrate good times. Indeed, this video celebrates good times. In the video, we can see the life of a man from beginning to end. First he goes to school, becomes friends with his classmates and joins a band. Then he joins the military. Then he becomes a worker and meets his girlfriend. Then, him and his girlfriend get married and have children. In the end, the man becomes old and goes to the hospital, where he does of an illness. At the end of the video, the man goes to heaven, where all his friends greet him and wave goodbye. This video is very beautiful and celebrates life’s memories. I also think the song is really good.
