Even more video

Maxiewawa left a comment and linked to one of his videos, he seems to have been busy ;). I particularly like this one...

Maxiewawa had made a composite video of people talking about their mobile phones in Japanese. I am on the slow-burner with Japanese, just collecting materials and working out how to keep up a slow and persistent progress, it was good to be able to recognise a few words though. This is his mobile phone introduction in Chinese...

I like getting Chinese from all sorts of sources, there seems to be an increasing number of non-native Chinese speakes putting stuff out there in Mandarin which is great in my opinion. Seeing as my shouji is in many respects the complete opposite of Max de shouji I am hoping to post a video response within the next couple of days. I don't have webcam or a proper video camera so I need to experiment a little first.

I LOVED that!! Really good stuff. Lot's of vocab that I had come across before but now I might actually remember thanks to hear it coming back at me.

比如说'过价还价'

Great delivery from Max. I have to subscribe.

Thanks Chris.

Hi Brendan, I cannot watch the "video" part(do not know why). Anyway, I think it should be "讨价还价(tao3 jia4 huan2 jia4" instead of "过价还价".

This was really funny especially because my sound didn't work. But his gesticulation was worth it.

@Jenny yes Max is great, do get your sound sorted it is worth it. The wild eyes and physical emphasis just make it better, he is a real showman and obviously passionate about language learning.

@Brendan, I was just lucky that Max posted which reminded me to look at his videos again :)

@liulianxiaoyu thanks for the correction, you really have helped a lot of us with our Chinese and deserve a medal :)
