011 Why

When you want to get below the surface of Chinese culture, you need be able to ask why things are done in certain ways! In this episode, ShaoLan and Transition singer Jesse teach you how to ask “why!”

More colloquial expressions are included in this episode, such as what 什麼 / 什么 (shén me) and what’s up  什麽事? / 什么事? (Shén me shì?).
