- Say the names of the month in Mandarin
- To read the names of the months in Pinyin and Characters
Learning the months in Mandarin is actually easier than in English. As soon as a child learns the numbers, it is time to introduce the concept of 12 months. The only word one has to learn is 月（yuè, meaning “moon”,”month”). The rest is easy: you simply add numbers 1-12 in front of 月. In detail, the 12 months are:
一月 yī yuè January
二月 èr yuè February
三月 sān yuè March
四月 sì yuè April
五月 wǔ yuè May
六月 liù yuè June
七月 qī yuè July
八月 bā yuè August
九月 jiǔ yuè September
十月 shí yuè October
十一月 shí yī yuè November
十二月 shí èr yuè December
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 the months of the year.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose months.

You do not need to know any Mandarin yourself to use any of these resources.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
