What do you think?


  1. when you only learn simplified characters and the traditional characters come up every where when you try to study Chinese

  2. Does Ben have Yellow-Fever?? He seems a typical guy that is only interested in Asians. He's a transracial (a condition similar to transvestite but instead the individual wants to be a different race from what he was born into)?

  3. This is helpful, but also pretty funny, since Ben Hedges is fluent in Chinese. ("How do I say it?")  🙂

  4. her way of speaking chinese is so flawed by her teeth and tongue. I think that foreigner speaks both English and Chinese better than her.她舌头太大了,换个节目做吧
