Story About Learning Chinese

I will share a story in here .This purpose of this to story is to remind people important of the education.

NOTE:

  • The word "One" in Chinese is write as 一 (yi)
  • "Two" in Chinese is write as 二 (er)
  • "Three" in Chinese is write as 三 (san)
  • "Four" in Chinese is write as 四 (si)
  • "Thousand" in Chinese is write as 千(qian)

One day, a rich man was hire a teacher to teach her son .when the teacher come ,his first lesson is teach the student about numbering.The teacher write the word 一(yi) and ask his student practice to write it.

The second day,The teacher teach the student 二(er) ,then the smart student say that "I know how to write three" .Then student wrote down the 三(san ).The teacher praise the student very clever.

At that night ,this student find his father and complain to his father say lesson of this teacher is too easy for me ,I don't even need any teacher to teach me .The father was so happy ,then he fire the teacher.

The next day a friend of the rich man has come ,the rich man praise his son was so clever .Then this friend ask the son to write the word "thousand",the son quickly go inside his room and write the word .

After an hour ,the rich man and friend curious why the son haven come out. They both go in the son room and found that the son keep writing the word 一(yi).They ask the son why write so many 一,then the son say :"i thought you are ask me to write thousand,Wait me awhile I only left 100 一.


Basic chinese tutorial

Chinese people has many kind of language for example: Mandarin,Cantonese,hokkien and many other.The most commonly used by the Chinese people is Mandarin.

Chinese language is not like English,do not contain alphabet and combine it become a word .Each Chinese word got a meaning but combine with other word can have different meaning,For example like:

Note:Chinese word=english=pinyin

  • 飞 =Fly= fei

  • 飞机 =Aircraft=fei ji

  • 飞机场 =Airport=fei ji chang

  • 飞机师 =Pilot=fei ji shi

But how to read the above Chinese word?

Actually Chinese got their own Chinese method (or some kind like a Chinese alphabet ) for the pronunciation .But for more easier to learn or pronounce Chinese word ,have develop a method call "Han yu ping yin" which use the English alphabet "abcde..." to pronounce the mandarin word.

Many Chinese word have the same pronunciation but have different meaningand also got some Chinese word got 2 or more pronunciationwhich use at different situation .Take an example like 魔 (e mo )demon,可 (ke wu) detestable .

Many Chinese input software to key in Chinese word using this method.(How to get these software ? I think "Microsoft Window" contain these input but you need the CD to install it or you can visit Microsoft window website to download)

For example like if you type "wo" then got many word will come out ,lets take 4 example "我 (me) /握 (hold) / 蜗 (Cochlear) / 卧 (lay down) " , this 4 can pronounce at the same way? NOPE ,all this 4 have different pronunciation (but almost the same).

Note: But not all Chinese word have different pronunciation.Hard to explain this at here ,if you interest you can watch the video below.
