Today Is a slightly different style of video. I had an impromptu Google Hangout with my younger sister, Iona.
During this chat we discussed the top 10 slang terms being used by kids in school and on the internet.
This is a bonus lesson, and I’ll continue making regular lessons for all those lower level students.
Let us know what you think. We made quite a lot of effort with this one, (especially those pesky subtitles)
This is probably 3/4 in Chinese, but i’ve written English subtitles so I think all you beginners should enjoy this lesson and practice your listening.
For you Int-learners, you can enjoy this lesson with the subtitles on or off, and see how much you understand. Download the podcast if you want to practice your listening.
For all you advanced learners, you can just listen to the podcast, or try turning off the subtitles and see how much you understand of the Taiwanese youth culture.
What’s the Difference Between Taiwanese Mandarin
and Chinese Mandarin?
Fear not, the differences are minimal. As you can see from the title, they are the same language, although like in any place, you have regional dialects and in the case of China and parts of Taiwan, completely disparate languages.
