Hello everyone. Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese. Many people like to watch TV and movies, and some people like to improve their Chinese by watching Chinese TV and movies. However, choosing the right TV and movies is important if you would like to improve your Chinese effectively. Today, let's talk about TV and movies that can improve our Chinese!
First of all, what kind of TV and movies shall we choose? Comedies, sitcoms, romances are the best choices because you can hear people talking a lot. Action movies are not suitable, because there is less talk and there are a lot of cool actions that can distract us.
So, what TV and movies are good for our learning? If you are just starting to learn Chinese, look for some anime. Because anime is for children, the language is relatively simple and the sentences are relatively short. For example, "Big Ear Tutu" and " Big-Headed Kid and Small-Headed Father ". "Big Ears Tutu," tells the story of a three-year-old boy, Tutu, who has a pair of big cute ears and is also very naughty. " Big-Headed Kid and Small-Headed Father," tells the story of a small Chinese family who lives in a city. In their lives, all kinds of things happen every day.
If your Chinese is already pretty good, and you would to listen to more authentic Chinese, you can watch these TV series and movies: "Home with Kids", "Ode to Joy" and "Hi Mom". "Home with Kids" is a situation comedy. There are 367 episodes in" Home with Kids ", and each episode is only 20 minutes long, but each episode is an interesting and funny story. In " Home with Kids ", Xia Donghai, a divorced screenwriter, and Liu Mei, a divorced nurse, re-formed a family. In this family, there are also Xia Donghai's daughter Xia Xue, son Xia Yu, and Liu Mei's son Liu Xing. The three children are all characters and often do something silly, which is funny. If you are interested in working and living in Chinese cities, you can take a look at “Ode to Joy”. The story of "Ode to Joy" takes place in Shanghai, the largest and richest city in China. Five girls live in the same building. They have different personalities, different backgrounds, different jobs, and different problems in their lives. How do they grow up? How do they face the problems of life? What is life like in Shanghai? You can find the answers to these questions in “Ode to Joy”. If you are interested in China in the past, I highly recommend you to watch the comedy film "Hi Mom". This 2021 film, which is very new and very popular, has grossed 5.4 billion yuan at the box office. Why do so many people like it? Because it tells a very touching story - Jia Xiaoling, who was very naughty since she was a child, often annoy her mother. That day, she had just been admitted to university. She and her mother were very happy, but her mother died suddenly in a car accident. Jia Xiaoling felt that she did not make her mother happy, and she felt very guilty to her mum. One day, she suddenly went back in time, back to 1981, and met her mother when she was young. Jia Xiaoling decided that she would try her best to make her mother happy. Almost everyone who watched the movie laughed and cried. Why? Please find the answer in this movie.

where can you stream Hi Mom? I would definitely like to watch this.
Perhaps Google “Hi Mum online”? It is not available on YouTube either Netflix, which is quite annoying!
