- Say the names of clothes in Mandarin
- Describe the colours of the clothes in Mandarin
- Read root words and symbols in Chinese characters
The names of the clothes are a bit challenging, as there are more strokes in the characters. However, as you may have discovered, most of the names can be grouped based on the root words, such as 衫shān (shirt), 裤kù(pants), 服fu (clothes). In details, the words of clothes are:
T恤衫 T xù shān (T shirt)
衬衫 chèn shān (shirt)
裤子 kù zi (pants)
裙子 qún zi (skirt)
鞋子 xié zi (shoes)
短裤 duǎn kù (shorts)
穿 chuān (wear)
衣服 yī fu (clothes)
校服 xiào fú (school uniform)
西装 xī zhuāng (suite)
长 cháng (long)
短 duǎn (short)
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 clothes.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose clothes.

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