55 COMMON PHRASES IN CHINESE | BASIC CHINESE

I spent 4 days cutting the video at home
The colors looked okay when I was editing
But don’t know why it became dark after I exported it
even darker after I uploaded it…lol
Who could tell me why?

This video includes 55 basic words, phrases,
and sentence patterns
which I think useful for beginners
I hope it could help all of you.

However, I found myself a bit talkative in the video
I will make it shorter next time
I still hope you will like it!
