Lesson 11: Chinese Pronouns!


Hey everyone, welcome to the first official post on my new website! I have been working hard on a series of videos to help you to learn Chinese. The videos are intended to be quick, effective and entertaining(hopefully!). Basically, I'm trying to immerse you in Chinese, but at the same time I don't want to overwhelm you with new vocabulary, if that makes sense. Further more, each video in this series will build on the last, and will hopefully help you to develop a well-rounded command of Chinese. But that ain't gonna happen with you just standing there looking pretty, so let's get started!

Pronouns in Mandarin:

1. 我– 我想買車子

wǒ — wǒ xiǎng mǎi chē zǐ

I/me- I want to buy a car.


2. 你–跟你借本書

nǐ –gēn nǐ jiè běn shū

you- I'll borrow a book from you.


3. 他/她/它– 他去上班了

tā — tā qù shàng bān le

he/she/it- He went to work.

Note: The pronunciation for the words he/she /it are the same in Mandarin, though the written characters are different.


4. 我們–我們一起去看電影,好嗎?

wǒ men –wǒ men yī qǐ qù kàn diàn yǐng ,hǎo ma ?
