Week 14 Lessons 

Day 1 

Wei Wei teaches you how to say "tomorrow afternoon" in Mandarin in today's 'Chinese Phrase of the Day' lesson. As always she'll: break down the character components, then practice pronunciation, and finally go over example sentences. Check it out:

Day 2 

We’ll take a close look at the Chinese words 见面 (jiàn miàn) and 聊天 (liáo tiān) in today’s video. 见面 (jiàn miàn) is actually a common type of Chinese verbs: the ‘verb-object’ verbs.

Once Wei Wei explains how ‘verb-object’ verbs work, you’ll feel totally clear about an aspect of Mandarin grammar that confuses a lot of students.

Day 3 

Learn how to express what you hope or wish for in Mandarin with today's lesson. Then we'll put together some bits and pieces from previous lessons to say some longer, more complex sentences.

Day 4 

In today's lesson we'll breakdown two extremely common, extremely useful Chinese words: 可以 (kě yǐ) and 明白 (míng bai).

There's a HUGE difference between looking up a word in a dictionary and having a teacher like Wei Wei demonstrating the correct pronunciation, breaking down the character components, and guiding you through example sentences!
