LISTEN TO THE TEXT
On Friday night, when I was reading some news online, an article about China's shoe manufacture and export caught my eyes. I thought that maybe it would be a good topic for us to talk about in light of what we discussed concerning China's mobile phone output last weekend. :-)
I do hope that what I have done for you will be a little help towards your Chinese language learning... :-)
Please click on any Chinese character that you need help with to see its Chinese pinyin, pronunciation and meaning, and then follow me to read it.
