- Say the names of the seasons in Mandarin
- Ask and answer questions about seasons
Learning the names of the seasons and some activities in Mandarin is not that hard. As you may have seen, the four seasons share the same root word 天 (tiān, meaning “sky”, “day”). Only the first characters are different. In details, the names of the seasons and some activities are:
四季 sì jì-four seasons
春天 chūn tiān-Spring
夏天 xià tiān-Summer
秋天 qiū tiān-Autumn
冬天 dōng tiān-Winter
你喜欢什么季节？ Nǐ xǐ huan shén me jì jié?-Which season do you like?
我喜欢春天。 Wǒ xǐ huan chūn tiān.-I like Spring.
春天到了。 chūn tiān dào le.-Spring comes.
你做什么？ Nǐ zuò shén me?-What do you do?
我种花。 Wǒ zhòng huā.-I plant flowers.
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 season.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose season.

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