Some Chinese words I love

When I first started learning Chinese, there were few words that instantly became my favorites. Today I am going to share them with you.
糟糕 (zāogāo): too bad
真糟糕!下起雨来了

马马虎虎 (mǎmǎhǔhǔ): so-so
他唱得马马虎虎

糊里糊涂 (hu li hú tu): confused
我很糊里糊涂

公共汽车 (gōnggòng qìchē): bus
我们坐公共汽车去吧
You can see a trend here. They all became my favorites because of the way they sound. Do you have any you can add to this list?

  5. On my opinion the best way to learn any language is to have constant speaking practice. In such case the best way is to find a tutor and native speakers. I can advise https://preply.com/en/london-UK/chinese-tutors for searching native speaking tutors. I've learnt Chinese using this website. All other methods you can use as aditional way to gain new knowledge and practice already completed material. But I'm looking for new methods to improve my skiils. Can you help me?
