Hi, everyone, 大家好。
In our last lesson, we learned how to say where you are from.

2)He needs to go to (Hong Kong...) 佢要去(香港)
3)My wife has been to San Francisco and Los Angeles 我太太去过(三藩市同埋罗省)
For those expecting Lesson Five, sorry that we have to delay till next week due to our beta issue and changes on our sites (we are trying to make it a better learning environment to help you.) Yes, we need more contributors, so if you are interested in helping, please let us know.
Let's just relax and have fun this week and forget about this week lesson:
