Hi Alex,

Could you tell me which browser you’re using? If you have a moment try seeing if you have the same problems on a different browser, it seems to work on my computer running Google Chrome. 
I apologize for the inconvenience and let me know if you still have issues.You’re right, we usually say “Bái xuě hěn piàoliang.” If we use “bái sè” to modify “xuě (snow),” “de” needs to be added between “bái sè” and “xuě.”
If you have a moment, try uploading another recording of the sentence.  =)

Hi Alex, you said that "我很高兴在两个月我去丹麦旅行。(Wǒ hěn gāoxìng zài liǎng gè yuè wǒ qù Dānmài lǚxíng.)" In your sentence, there is a little question. That is we don't use "在两个月(zài liǎng gè yuè)" to express "in two months." We often add a noun/verb/adjective and "de" to modify.
So if you had been to Denmark, and you had a good time there. (I mean it happened in the past.) You can say "在丹麦旅行的两个月我很高兴。(Zài Dānmài lǚxíng de liǎng gè yuè wǒ hěn gāoxìng.)" =I was very happy in the two months I traveled to Denmark. 
If you will go to Denmark. You can say "我很高兴可以去丹麦旅行两个月。(Wǒ hěn gāoxìng kěyǐ qù Dānmài lǚxíng liǎng gè yuè.)"=I'm very happy that I can travel to Denmark for two months.
The recording is about this two sentences. :)
And... could you tell me some interesting things in your trip? :)

"I want to go to travel  in Denmark but i go in Greece to work in hotel."

Hi Alex, I see, you want to go to Denmark but you need to work. :) Just a little question,  the pronounce of "but" should be "kě shì." :)

Nǐ hǎo, dragon009! Indeed, qiǎokèlì hěn hǎo chī. The chocolate is very delicious. So I think you want to say "Wǒ xǐhuan chī qiǎokèlì." I like to eat chocolate. Right?
