I like these ‘Rhythm Chinese’ sample videos from Munjeonga Chinese (문정아 중국어) in Korea. The video course is too expensive for me, though. The online course is 599,000 won for a year (500 US dollars?) . But language courses are usually expensive so it’s actually… reasonable? Now I think that Talk To Me In Korean is really generous because their video clips are free.
오늘 며칠이니? What’s the date today? 今天几号? Jīntiān jǐ hào?♬
오늘 8일이야. Today is 8th. 今天八号。Jīntiān bā hào.♬
The cute girl in the video says ‘lucky 8, that Chinese people like’. I didn’t know 8 was the the lucky number in China. What do I know about China? Air pollution? Not fun. I should learn something about China.
I have a small desk calendar to tell me what date it is today and also to motivate to keep my room tidy because it’s published by Marie Kondo, the famous Japanese organizing consultant. I think I can try recall Chinese numbers, whenever I see the desk calendar.
Today is 6th. So… 今天六号。Jīntiān liù hào. ♬ ###
