Hi Chico,

Mandarin Chinese is the official language of China. It is spoken throughout China, while Cantonese is a dialect spoken mostly in Guangdong province.
If you have any questions related to Chinese, please feel free to let me know.

Thx so much Ellie for the review, much appreciated. How about if i say, Shenme Shihou qu...replacing it with ni ji dian chufa....Also, Women qu Sanlitun hao ma? does it tally or means the same . Look forward to hear from you soon.

Eddie, Nǐ hǎo! Very good question! "Shenme shihou" means when, you can say "Ni shenme shihou qu someplace?" means when do you go to somewhere. "Ji dian" literally means which o’clock. And the answer will be the exact time, 2 o'clock or 3o'clock? You can say "Ni ji dian qu someplace?" "Chufa" means to set out. We often say "Ni shenme shihou /ji dian chufa?" They are the same. But there is no place word after "chufa." "Women qu Sanlitun hao ma?" means shall we go to Sanlitun? 
Do I make myself understood? Hahaha! I hope so!

Qing wen... can you speak slowly?"You can say: Qǐngwèn kěyǐ shuō màn yìdiǎn ma?
"Duibuqi! I don't understand, can you repeat?" you can say: Wǒ bù dǒng, nǐ kěyǐ zài shuō yí cì ma?
By the way, can you tell me how long you learned Chinese.

I started studying chinese around 3 month ago...
Few days ago I watched a chinese movie (with english subs), but I could hardly get few words because you chinese speak very fast to me :'(''''

But, as for every new stuff, it's just a matter of time and application... just have to be patient and keep on learning... ;-) Ciao

You should keep learning, you will make progress.
By the way: you said that you just studying Chinese 3 months, I recommend you watch our other videos, maybe you will make progress quickly. Like "Day Day up"  "Crazy Grammar" "Big Bang Vocab" I think these are suitable for you.
