- Talk about a healthy lifestyle in Mandarin
- Talk about daily routine in Mandarin
- Write about daily routine in Chinese characters
Talking about the daily routine in Mandarin is not too difficult. As you may have found, the grammar in Mandarin is different from that in English when we talk about time. In details, the words and sentences of daily routine are:
日常生活 rì cháng shēng huó ( daily routine)
起床 qǐ chuáng ( get up)
我六点半起床。 Wǒ liù diàn bàn qǐ chuáng. ( I get up at 6:30.)
吃早饭 chī zǎo fàn ( have breakfast)
上学 shàng xué ( go to school)
上课 shàng kè ( class starts)
吃午饭 chī wǔ fàn ( have lunch)
放学 fàng xué ( leave school)
吃晚饭 chī wǎn fàn ( have dinner)
睡觉 shuì jiào ( go to bed)
我八点睡觉。 Wǒ bā diǎn shuì jiào. ( I go to bed at 8.)
I have made a set of cards on Quizlet (quizlet.com or download the app for phone or ipad) to help your child practice learning this topic.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose daily routine.

You do not need to know any Mandarin yourself to use any of these resources.
