Learn Mandarin with Kemauan : Lesson 3


Ok guys, this is lesson 3 of Learn Mandarin with Kemauan but before you begin, it is better if you review again previously lessons, because it's been long time since the last lesson - sorry about this :)

OK let's begin

nǐ huì shuō pǔ tōng huà ma?
wǒ huì yī diǎn er
nǐ shì Měi guó rén ma?

In mandarin, hǎo means well, so to say I don't speak well : wǒ shuō de bù hǎo

hǎo : well
de : possessive

28. can you speak mandarin ? : .....
29. I don't speak well : .....
30. If you want to ask something just say, please let me ask : .....
31. say, I'm not american : .....
32. I can't speak english : .....
33. I don't speak well : .....

If you want to say Hello in chinese you say "nǐ hǎo" the meaning is "you well".
Suppose if you want to say how are you, you say "nǐ hǎo ma ?" (you well ?) - this is only if you want to ask someone about his condition, if not, just say nǐ hǎo, to greetings.

34. say, hello : .....
35. very well thanks : hěn hǎo, xiè xie
36. ask again are you well? : .....
37. very well : .....
38. which part is "very" in mandarin ? : .....
39. how are you ? : .....
40. very well thanks : .....

This is how to say good bye in chinese : zài jiàn (with two falling tone)

41. say hello : .....
42. how are you ? : .....
43. very well thanks : .....
44. goodbye : .....
45. are you american ? : .....
46. no, I'm not american : .....
47. I can't speak mandarin : .....
48. goodbye : .....
49. excuse me, please let me ask, can you speak english ? : .....
50. how do you answer No : .....
51. I can speak a little mandarin : .....
52. I don't speak well : .....
53. goodbye : .....

Now lets imagine that you meet with someone and you do a conversation with him. Answer with positive answers (or yes)

X: nǐ hǎo
You : ..... (you well)

X: nǐ shì Měi guó rén ma?
You : ..... ( yes, I'm american)

X : nǐ huì shuō pǔ tōng huà ma?
You : ..... ( a little, I can speak a little mandarin)
You : ..... (I don't speak well)

X : zài jiàn
You : ..... (good bye)
