Saved by the Gong: Tai Chi
Hey guys, after a couple of weeks of severe pain, I have created a transcript of Saved by the Gong: Tai Chi. I think it's mostly ok, though there were a couple of bits I didn't get, and other bits where I just guessed. Please get out your thick red markers and get correcting!

不用谢！ Actually, reviewing this lesson was useful for me because I've found that there is overlap with the terms my ballet teacher always uses in class. So I think now maybe I can attempt to talk about ballet in Chinese, something I've always wanted to do.

There was a QW called To do a short while ago. The lesson itself is mostly not about 做 and 作 though - lol.
However have a look through the lesson comments thread, there's a great post by changye relating to those words, an interesting expansion on what he says by jenny, and the other material there is also generally interesting and useful.

Sebire 你辛苦了！ 没想到你也是做的，太好了！
I don't know why I thought--was I crazy?--this form of recreation was going to catch on in a BIGGER way. Glad to see it's not dead yet.
Don't have a big red marker but will be glad to look through and give feedback. If I don't get it done tonight I'll get back Monday, sorry it can't be earlier.

zhenlijiang, it says I don't have access. However, thanks for taking the time to have a look at it!
I know that people use the transcripts for the English, but I find transcribing English quite frustrating, as it feels like I'm doing all this work for no personal gain, and all the typing begins to hurt after a while. That's why I picked an UI rather than an Intermediate, as there's a lot less Engish.
I do transcribe the Chinese parts of Intermediates from time to time, and if people find this helpful, I will start posting them.

Sebire 让你久等了，真的不好意思。 This is great work. And I can see how it would be so painful, there are still patches I can't really hear.
I put my feedback up here. Sorry if I seem to nitpick at times, at one point toward the end I pick on an English word, but only because we've learned recently that these transcripts are helpful for people with their English hearing as well.
In any case it's really a good transcript.
Sorry for the delay. Hope this helps a bit.
Input from others also welcome right, Sebire?
