Let's learn Mandarin!

We will watch, discuss, and practice CCTV's "Growing Up with Chinese". These are high-quality 15-minute-long video lessons for teaching basic Mandarin Chinese to young people. My goal is to watch one lesson each week.

Lesson 9: Family

    The word I was trying to use is 固執, which is better translated as 'stubborn'.
    The sentence looks much better in Traditional:
    您的手機臭,是因為蘋果的傲慢.
    Better yet in Cantonese:
    你架手機冇鬼用, 係因為蘋果嘅傲慢.

      Thanks. I have no clue about simplified vs traditional. Maybe we could discuss that at the next meeting.

    I see what you did there with all the "Good to see you"s, you guys. Ok, here's the sentence challenge of the night. I still can't get the translation of the word arrogance that Louis came up with. I did learn the word for cell phone, though, which is different than the word for a regular phone. 您的手机臭,是因为苹果是骄横
