  2. Hi Amanda, You can watch English movies on aiqiyi, a Chinese website, but it is old English movies. If you are interested in learning Chinese, there are many Chinese movies and programs on that site.I have been teaching Chinese to foreigners in hangzhou for 8 years after staying in the US. For apartment hunting, it depends on where your job is and what kind of area you prefer to live in. downtown has more things, other districts are nice and quiet.

  7. Nihao Jason! I studied in America 8 years ago and met a lot of nice people there. I have been teaching Chinese for more than 10 years. Hangzhou is a nice city, above suggestions covered almost everything you need to know before your departure. You may experience culture shock after you come, China is totally different from western countries and developed a lot than before, you will meet many nice people,so don't worry, you will enjoy your stay here. Let me know if you need language help, I am always wiling to do it.
  8. Chinese Learning Stories

    Sayhi Chinese class: 今天的汉语课上学生讲了一个笑话,Is your fridge running? yes. then come on, catch it. 这里就是语言的差异引起的笑话。 在中文里我们说工作,运作,说明这个东西没有坏,还可以工作。英文里run除了这个意思,还有经营也有跑的意思。 In today's sayhi Chinese class, a student told me a joke. He asked: is your fridge running? I answered: sure. Then he said, come on, you'd better catch it. haha then I realized what he meant. This is a joke from language difference, in Chinese, we say something is gong zoo or yun zuo, it means it can work, it is not out of work. But run has many meanings in English.

  10. Sayhi Chinese summer intensive Chinese course is opened, welcome to consult.
  11. Chinese Learning Stories

    63、思海汉语课堂第六十三讲,关于变和换。很多外国学生会混用这两个字。 其实我们可以说变是一个事物发生的事情,而换是两个事物。比如说我们可以说人变了,但我们说换钱。 In Sayhi Chinese class, we learned two words Bian and Huan, both of them means change. Students often get confused by them. Actually, bian is for one object, the object or person itself's change. But for bian, it is for two things, exchange them. Author: grace from Sayhi Chinese
