  1. Hi Min Min,

    The some of the pinyin in sentence 1 is wrong. liú is not the pinyin for 子, xiě is not the pinyin for 流 and le is not the pinyin for 血. Thanks

  2. Hi Min Min
    Every time I’ll write a message I’ll congratulate you on your work. Good Job!
    Another small error for xiě (血)it should be xuè, right?

    Keep up the good work!
