Learn Chinese for Beginners: Chinese Phrase of the Day Challenge (Week 10)

WEIWEI LIU

This was a HUGE week in our Chinese Phrase of the Day Challenge! 


We covered a TON of super common vocabulary words like 几 (jǐ) and 最 (zuì), 问 (wèn) and 问题 (wèn tí). And we put these new vocabulary words together into useful phrases, from asking questions to complimenting people in Chinese. 


This was also a big week because we launched #StayHome Pricing and made Level 1 of our Beginner Conversational Course completely free. With so much of the world staying home to fight COVID-19, we want to help you focus on something positive and study Chinese online.


If you haven't already started Level 1, now is the time to give it a try! Start here with Lesson 1:



Week 10 Lessons 


Now let's take a look at all the lessons from Week 10!


Day 1 


I love how the two words you'll learn in today's lesson - 问 (wèn) and 问题 (wèn tí) show how Chinese words combine like building blocks to form new words! 


Chinese can seem really confusing at first, but once you start studying, you'll see it's actually an extremely logical language!



Day 2 


There are a lot of ways to learn Chinese vocabulary, but nothing beats having a teacher like Wei Wei giving you clear explanations for EVERYTHING!


In today's lesson, she'll teach you two super practical words: 几 (jǐ) and 最 (zuì), breaking down the grammar with plenty of example sentences.

These clear explanations are why students who have struggled to learn Chinese FINALLY find success with our courses. 



Day 3 


After you watch this video, you'll be able to compliment people in Chinese!



Day 4 


Today you'll learn some really useful Chinese question words like "which" and "where".


We'll also go over the very useful topic-comment sentence structure. Learning these common sentence structures makes it easy to express yourself in Mandarin.



*TIP: Are you still having trouble pronouncing some of these sounds? Check out this interactive pinyin chart. It has all the sounds of Mandarin, with each tone, so you can really focus on the sounds that are giving you the most trouble.

Day 5 - Review 


After you watch today's WEEK 10 Review lesson, take a moment to reflect on how far you've come. Studying with us for only 5-10 minutes a day, you are now able to express your thoughts, ask questions, and speak complex sentences in Chinese!
