Based on an article by John Pasden on Sinoplice, this video teaches you new ways to say “I don’t understand”.
Sometime, learners will default to saying 聽不懂/听不懂 tīng bù dǒng. This is bad for learners because a native will think you don’t know Chinese, rather than what you actually mean which is that you don’t understand one word, concept, or maybe you just didn’t hear clearly. Listen as we teach you some better ways to say tīng bù dǒng
I often get asked how I learnt Chinese growing up, or what my background is, so in today’s video i’m gonna tell you.
