~China Week~ Day 1: Language


This week we are back to our culture studies. We will be focusing on China and delving into different aspects of its culture. The focus of today's studies is the language and writing. Serenity already knows a few words and loves the culture so hopefully this won't be a struggle for her. The Chinese actually have two main dialects Mandarin and Cantonese. We will be learning about Mandarin right now.



We went over a few phrases and practiced on this site: BBC Chinese Language

Then we watched a video for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in Mandarin.


These are the words and phrases we will focus on this week:
Hello: Nǐ hǎo
Goodbye: Zài jiàn
Thank you: xie xie
Please: Qǐng
Sorry: duìbùqǐ
I love you: Wǒ ài nǐ
Nice to meet you: Hěn gāoxìng rènshí nǐ
I'm called...: wǒ jiào...

Tomorrow we will talk about Entertainment and Food.
