- aAre you ok, Chuck? You look pale.
- bI'm fine, Katherine. I just stayed up late last night working on my Chinese.
- aOh, poor you. You know what? I found a new way to learn Chinese and it works very well.
- bYou did? Do tell me. I've spent all these months trying to learn something new about it, but I've made little progress!
- aSure. I'm learning Chinese through songs.
- bSo you're learning Chinese songs?
- aYou can say that. I can actually sing some of them now.
- bThat's a real achievement. How did you do that?
- aI start by listening to the song a few times and after several times I am able to follow the singer.
- bIt makes sense.
- aIt does. I've learned some Chinese folk songs this way. They are clearly presented and easy to follow.
- bCan I join you, Katherine? I do want to have a try.
- aWhy not? I downloaded a beautiful song the other day. We can learn it together now.
- bGreat. Do you think we need a Chinese dictionary?
- aYes, just in case we run into me new characters.
- bOk. I will bring it with me.
