Earlier, we’ve turned comics and aviation books into class room material, and now we’re doing it with video games (diànzǐ yóuxì 电子游戏). Learn Chinese with Michael playing Fortnite, describing the objects he discovers as well as the places he visits. Here’s episode 1 and 2.
Episode 1: Michael is nervous (hàipà 害怕). Can he find weapons?
Episode 2: Michael sees an enemy (敌人 dírén)! Can he win?
“You can see that I am still Level 1”
(Nǐmen kěyǐ kàn dào wǒ xiànzài háishì Level 1

“It’s very peaceful today…”
(Jīntiān hěn hépíng
“Oh, I think there’s a sound!”
(Hǎoxiàng tīng dàole shénme shēngyīn
Episode 3: Inside the eye of the storm
Michael takes us for another game in Fortnite. Learn Chinese words and phrases like “too fast!”, “awesome!” and “he plays better than me” — all while watching Michael get butchered in Fortnite.
Make sure you watch the video until the end, where Michael recaps ten useful phrases.
Recovering – 恢复 (huīfù)
Too fast – 太快了 (tài kuài le)
Play better than me – 比我玩得好 (bǐ wǒ wán de hǎo)
