Learn Chinese with the La La Land Theme Song

YANGYANG CHENG

Have you seen the movie La La Land (ài yuè zhī chéng 爱乐之城 / 愛樂之城)? I fell in love with music from the original sountrack and I had to use it to write my next lesson! Here's the song I wrote, I hope you like it! 



I included the Chinese, Pinyin, and English translation below, and I hope you can learn a useful Chinese phrase or two! :)
