This week’s lesson is on how to say family members in Chinese. Great! Because I produced a series of videos on family members in 2009. The content matched the vocabulary required by the textbook. So I decided to use the video as part of teaching materials for students to watch and practice at home.

The title is close in meaning to the saying “ask for the moon” or “cry for the moon”, or simply means “trying for the impossible”.
