A Song to Wow Your Chinese Friends

YANGYANG CHENG

Let's add more fun to your learning journey!

I’ve hand selected this lovely Chinese pop song for you to learn “Mice Love Rice - lǎo shǔ ài dà mǐ (老鼠爱大米)". 

I know mice love cheese in the west but in China, mice love rice. ^_^


This song is perfect for you because:


  •          It’s romantic
  •          It’s well-known
  •          The lyrics are simple
  •          The melody is catchy
  •          The words you’re going to learn are useful.


I transcribed the song for you into English, Pinyin and Chinese characters so you can follow along as you watch the video.  

I hope you enjoy mastering the song and rocking out like a pro next time you're at Karaoke!

-Yangyang
