Sorry about last week's podcast. YouTube is freaking out on me... I rerecorded it, for those still interested and took down the old one.
This week's characters: 种 Plant (verb)/grow 种花 Plant flowers 种子 Seed 谢谢 Thank you 不谢 No need to thank me... Not at all... Your welcome...NOT "No Thanks" The literal translation has the opposite meaning! 做 Make/do 做工 work 你在做什么? What are you doing? 我自己做的 I made it myself. 再 again 再来 do it again Chinese: 再 + verb as compared to English verb + again...Word order is opposit 见 see 再见 goodbye (literally see you again) 看= watch/read/active seeing 见=passive seeing 不见了 disappeared (literally can't see it anymore)
