- Say the words of shopping in Mandarin
- Role-play buying food and fruits Mandarin
Learning the words of shopping in Mandarin is not too difficult. As you may have known, the money in China is called人民币 rén mín bì (RMB). In details, the words and sentences of shopping are :
买东西 mǎi dōng xi (shopping)
要 yào (want)
买 mǎi (buy)
这个 zhè ge (this one)
那个 nà ge (that one)
请问你要买什么？ Qǐng wèn nǐ yào mǎi shén me? (Excuse me, what would you like to buy?)
Wǒ yào mǎi zhè ge. (I want to buy this one.)
一共多少钱？ yí gòng duō shaǒ qián? (How is the total?)
人民币 rén mín bì (RMB)
元 yuán (yuan)
角 jiǎo (10 cents)
分 fēn (cent)
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 shopping.

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