Hello, everyone. Welcome back. This is Baixue’s Chinese Language Learning Program. Last time, we talked about cooking equipment in Chinese. Today, we are going to talk cooking in mandarin Chinese.
Before we start, I need to thanks DevotedtoChaos which is a youtube channel name I mentioned before. She is such a wonderful girl. Not mention her previous advice for my videos and website, her sweet message in my website also gave me encouragement to let this Chinese Language Learning Program more helpful. She also offers me to help with promoting this program to let more people know this program. I really appreciate her kindness. What she did just make me think that I will make this program better and better. Thanks again!
