Just out of curiosity, is 巴西烤肉 very popular in China?

Hi, great lesson!

Do you think you could make a Qing Wen explaining the difference between different ways to say "but" / "however" like: 不过,但是,可是, etc.

Hi David,

I think that is practically impossible to sync audio and video from two different recordings.

Anyway thanks for your reply and congratulations again on the first video lesson!

Hi, I've noticed on close ups on Jenny, that the audio is out of synch with the video...

So here's a helpfull tip that has worked well for me whenever I need to synch audio and video:

First of all make sure all of the cameras are recording audio and video (even if you are going to use the audio of just one of them). Afterwards on your video editing program put each video/audio track one on top of the other so that you overlap the audio tracks (at this point usually what you will hear is a jumble of audio playing different parts of the same recording).

Now just move each audio/video track forward or back so that you hear only the same part of the same recording, this means that you will hear a "clear" audio.

And that's it, your audio/video is synched.

Not sure if this helped (or if I could actually make a clear explanation of the process), but here you go!

By the way I really liked the new video lesson! Congrats to you all.

I am actually amazed to see how most of these Chinese onomatopeias sound like their Portuguese counterparts. For example:

汪汪汪 = Au au au.
嘀嘀 = Bibi.
阿嚏 = Atchim.
