I'm pretty sure ‘burp’ is also ‘打嗝’ when translated into Chinese, right?

其实,我觉得玩游戏对我学习汉语很有帮助。我最近买了一台任天堂的Wii和赛尔达传说:天空之剑。那个赛尔达游戏是中文版的,通过那个游戏我学了很多跟幻想有关的词汇和说法。 我觉得非常有用!

Actually, I think playing video games has been really helpful for studying Chinese. I recently bought a Nintendo Wii and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The game is the Chinese version. I've learned a lot of fantasy related vocab and phrases while playing it. I've found it to be really useful!

Great lesson! I'm glad to hear David hosting an Intermediate lesson! I have a couple of questions for you guys:

微软Surface在中国上市了吗?我白度了,不过还不太清楚。有看到了一个美国朋友在Facebook上写:“虽然Surface (在美国) 上市了,但是我就买不到,因为都卖光了!“ 在中国,会不会遇到这样的情况呢?

Is the Microsoft Surface on the market yet in China? I Baidu-ed it, but I'm still not entirely clear on whether or not it has. I saw an American friend post on Facebook: "Although the Surface (in the US) is on the market, I can't  buy one because they're all sold out!" Will this same sort of thing happen in China?

Agreed! A more in-depth upper intermediate lesson related to this topic would be fantastic!


I wish my Chinese was good enough to help my students analyze English grammar.

Just this morning I walked past a 苹果体验中心。 Although I already knew 体验 means "experience", I remember thinking, "I wonder why 体验 is chosen over 经历 or 经验。"

A timely lesson indeed. Thanks CPod!

那,在"Beware of Professional Beggars"那播客中我学到这个结构:

以...为... [to take something as something]

“他们以乞丐为职业。“ [They make begging into a job.]

然后在这播客中,“当”那个字也是“to take"的意思吧?
