Chinese Vlog#1 第一次的中文錄像博客

這是我第一次的中文錄像博客(Video Blog)。我做這部錄像是為了提高我的口語。如果你們發現任何語法的錯我,請趕快告訴我!

這不錄像片是8月17日拍的。

This is my first Chinese Vlog, which I made to improve my spoken Chinese. Please help me by making suggestions or corrections! This video was taken on the 17th of August.

我其實已經發現幾個問題。I actually discovered a few mistakes.
請幫我改正。Please help me correct them.

Well done! The 'si' in 'Sichuan' is fourth tone. :)

It's true about Chinese food in Australia, it's all from Hong Kong, isn't it!

Yeah, but when I was in Sydney last month I actually saw a few Sichuan, Xinjiang and Taiwanese places... but in the Gold Coast, it's all basically Canto....

Hello Nicolas,I've been in Beijing since a week...^_^

1)¨Chinese video blog 中文錄像博客¨
It's correct if we only talk about the translation from English to Chinese...

However I've a question for you, too...what's the exact meaning of ¨blog¨? for me, ¨博客¨ presents a categoty of siteweb; it's the gathering of videos, photos, articles, etc.

If you agree with me, I think ¨這是我第一部中文錄像片¨ should be more correct.

2)¨某人和朋友去夏令营¨ there is no problem in this sentence.¨去¨is a verb.

¨Subject + Verb + Object¨= GOOD!

3)How to distinguish¨目标¨and¨目的¨?
It's not easy... but 目标 is often used in official articles, because this word owns a ¨higher¨,¨serious¨,¨respectful¨,and ¨positive¨ colour in people's mind... and yet,目的 could be in our usual life, in little case, for personal thinking...so you could say "我的目的是去吃四川菜".

Sometimes, we replace 目标 and 目的in order to point out certain emotion. that depends your feeling, your need...^_^

Thank you!

I guess I directly translated from English to Chinese. In English it's correct to say Video Blog, or Vlog, but in Chinese maybe it sounds weird to say 錄像博客. Is it ok to say 錄像日記?

Great Job Nick :)

정말 잘 만들었어요!

저도 중국어 비디오 만들어 봐야겠어요 ^^

Yiwei said...

Great!!...I think,¨錄像日記¨is very cultured...

The meaning of this expression perhaps is still far away from your thinking...因为它非常有"文学色彩", 非常有"现代感"; 这种表达方式,在中国大陆,是近十年才"流行"起来的...

Very good choice!

I was going to make a 录像日记 and put it up at youku.com but I couldn't find a single one made by a Chinese person so I chickened out...
