Some Chinese songs
At the start of class yesterday a student sang a song (lyrics below). [Baidu 我爱你《东成西就》 for an mp3 or the lyrics.] Anyone like to attempt a translation? Some of it is a bit of a challenge.
The rest of the class thought it was very funny. Apparently it comes from a 'Hong Kong' film, the humour is very popular on the mainland.
(I can't imagine a 3rd year Economics student in the West singing a song before class, funny or not.)
I think I will get someone to sing before every class now - there are plenty of people offering..
Here's another, a second student sang an encore (easier)
我愿意 (a Wang Fei song)
(music and repeat)
