Better if you include the hanzi along with the pinyin!!!

Thanks for your sincere advice, and this video is mainly for beginners. With regard to beginners, they should be familiar with Pinyin at first. As for higher-level videos, we will use more characters. Please look forward to our advanced video!

Very good video and audio quality. However, it is a great pity that you don’t offer the Chinese characters for the few sentences you use: 你的運氣真,等等. Using only Pinyin is very unchinese like and very confusing even for a beginner with the right appoach to Chinese learning. Pinyin is a very useful tool, but it was never intended as a script, but only as a phonetic notation. No using Chinese Character is a tragedy and very much against Chinese culture only favoring Western culture, which although good, is not the case when teaching Chines. In short: Always use Characters + Nor always Pinyin

Because of the different levels of our videos, this video is mainly for beginners. With regard to beginners, they should be familiar with Pinyin at first. As for higher-level videos, we will use more characters. Please look forward to our advanced video!
