  1. Hello,

    I love this song and I wanted to thank you wholeheartedly as well for this website. I am about to embark on the study of TCM and need to learn Mandarin – and my two children with me. I have to say I was feeling very overwhelmed this week, and this song MADE ME FEEL I CAN ACTUALLY DO IT :) Something about those little kids voices is so optimistic.
    So a huge thank you to you, I plan to visit here often and recommend your site as well.

    I would very much appreciate though if you could translate and transcribe the latter part of this song.

    Greetings – Iga.
