Your friend asks you to a concert, but you have other plans. How can you tell him“no?”

I continue to enjoy the lessons. All of them including todays lesson are relevant and useful.

Again I ask "when will we have a lesson relevant to the weather, temperature and seasons?

Hi Douglas,

I'm glad you enjoyed our lessons. 
Because words and grammars relevant to the weather, temperature and seasons are difficult in Newbie, so we will make one lesson in the future in Elementary. Thanks for your advice. 
If you have any more questions, please feel free to let me know.

Hi Takako,
Good answer! 
But we should say 今天是我妈妈的生日"Jīntiān shì wǒ māma de shēngrì", which means "today is my mom's birthday." And for "Let's go watch movie next time" we should say 我们下次去看电影吧"wǒmen xiàcì qù kàn diànyǐng ba", 下次"xiàcì"means "next time. "
Usually we just add 下次吧"xiàcì ba", "maybe next time/rain check."
If you have any questions about this lesson, please feel free to let me know.

Hi Mouy, “nǐhǎo wǒ shì xuésheng” means “hello, I’m a student”. “Bú kèqi” means “you’re welcome”.  If you have any questions about this lesson, please feel free to let me know
