Learning Chinese: A vlog

So, I am trying to pick up some Chinese since Sammy’s learning it in school.  It’s difficult. There are four tones in Chinese, and the tones change the meanings of the word drastically, like from apple to say, helicopter. (Not a real example, but you get the idea.) It’s apparently difficult for English speakers to hear the tones and I can certainly attest to that.   I can’t hear the difference pretty much ever.

So this is from last night on the way home from dinner.  Sam was trying to teach Sean and I how to say a couple of things. Fortunately for me, Sean is way worse at it.  Also, you may note the chaos in the car. That is my life, people.

    Sean is the funniest. Followed by Ella and her nose in the camera. You, of course, are an inspiration of calm under fire. And a language genius.
