 "Mǎi" (third tone) means buy, and  "mài"(fourth tone) means sell. 
We will post several videos about how, what, when, and where in Crazy Grammmer soon. You can watch them later. :)

Hello, it's again the 法国的学生 ,
I have a biiiig trouble about your "Grammar part " of this lesson, as i understood to say a year, we say " number by number " for exemple 2067 we should say "二零六七  " ? but i can see written :
érlínglíngyī nián, 
2010年、 (should be 2001 ?)
yījiǔbābā nián, 
1998年、(should be 1988 ?)
It's in the part " 1.Date , nian"

Thanks for your chinese lesson, you really made me love to learn this language.

Hi Guillaume,
Thanks for letting us know about this.
The Pinyin for 2010 should be "èrlíngyīlíng," and 1998 should be "yījiǔjiǔbā." We will correct it as soon as possible.
