Note to recorder:

Natural speed, please. This is my first, so it's very basic! Thank you very much!

大家好!

我叫克里斯,我住在英国约克。我学中文有五个月了,它还是在很基本的阶段。我想学普通话因为中国是迷人的国家,我想要去那旅行。

因为大部分英国人对语言很不在行,所以我想要改变这样的状态,随着中国和中文重要性提升。

我目前知道基本的问候像-“你好";国籍-“我是英国人”;名字-“我叫克里斯”;职业-“我是大学生”;日期-“今天二零一二年三月十号”;和菜-“这红烧肉很好吃!”

但是我恨不流利,因此我想做录像-一两星期一次!

谢谢你的观看!

Hi again, a bit confused about one of the words, what's the word you say at 0:33, after "我目前知道基本的问候“ and before "你好“,sounding something like "xia4"?

there was a brief pause after "我目前知道基本的问候". and i read "像"(xiang4)as you wrote.
look this website,

oh...i'm sorry for my carelessness!
i watched it-- wow, that's brilliant! you must do a lot to prepare for it though it lasted less than 2mins.
though several characters were wrong.
anyway, well done!

no problem!
you did not say something wrong in this video. what i wanted to say is the subtitles.
mistakes:
00:24 '因为重视迷人的国家'
01:31 ‘因此我想做陆行’

i think you've done well as you just learn this language for 5 mths and i believe that you would do it better next time.
