The Newgrounds (Xin Di) internet webpage company present an informative series on the teaching of a Chinese Language. He is very simple, so lazy American people can learn this useful world language.

These lesson is for the Mandarin (world language), not Cantonese (the People's language).

Ok, in English now... Good work! (i hope i got that right) See? i'm already learning... this is a good thing you're doing because for some Americans, the best way to learn is through laughter... to use the special lettering above it's alt + # (i.e. alt+0192= À). thought you would like to know. Keep up the good work!

Good God..

I really do enjoy watching this, and probably more, listening to these. I visited China by myself for 2 months and couldn't stop thinking about how much this flash reminds me of China and how complex the language is. Yet, you can make it so much more fun to learn random characters just by using their language to make your flash.

Do you know some chinese or is it an aspiration to learn, or are you chinese? Any way it goes. I enjoy these flashes and do hope to see more as you continue to make a name for yourself on Newgrounds.


Wasn't much animation, but the voice acting and overall artstyle of the flash was pretty good. Everything was crisp, clean, even throwing in humor with mispellings that if read as spelled, made a mockery of a chinese accent. Nice coloring scheme and papyrus look to the screen. 7, may be too high for what it is, but to me, the humor and overall spirit of the flash makes me believe it's worth about so. Thanks and have a great one!

My mother is 100% Taiwanese (grandparents from Hunan). I was raised in Taiwan and Malaysia from ages 10-18, visiting Taipei every Summer since I was born. I speak conversational Chinese fluently, so no politics, science, etc.

y u no like americans :<

3&8 means idiot because 3-8 is -5.
and 3&8 like 38
so we take 38-24-5=9
9 is the strongest, thus 9=idiot. :>

lol%uFF01will be better if you make it longer

i`m a chinese myself but everytime i watch it for fun. this chinese accent is rarer now but it amused. i think you should make more! even you can teach some dialects. such as Shanghainese will say" Lack West " if they want to call you an idiot(seems you`re interested in the word idiot), people in other places won`t.

lack west? like "tsa xi" ?(my ping ying sucks). I honestly don't know any other dialects well enough to speak in them. Taiwanese (jia bong!) and Cantonese (mo ah mo ah!), I've had exposure to, but I never learned.

Wow! That was incredibly offensive AND educational

So, a train is a Fire Car, a refrigerator is an Ice Container, and my favorite - a computer is an Electric Brain. Over all, that seems pretty intuitive - much more so than English, anyway. Well, except for the fact that 3-8 means Idiot. Speaking of which, I was surprised that our hilariously stereotypical narrator didn't take the opportunity to further insult his American audience when teaching us that "White Silly" also means idiot. Maybe that would've been too easy.
It's kinda weird when you think about it, but nobody in the Western World even SPEAKS Latin anymore (as a first language anyway), yet we keep coming back to it to make new words for new things. What's up with that?

As a kid, combining simple words seem to make a lot of sense. God knows how long it took me to say "refrigerator" (mainly because it didn't mean anything at the time).
