- Say the names of the vehicles ( the车chē car group) in Mandarin
- Write the names of the vehicles in Chinese characters
- Talk about which vehicles we use in daily life
Learning the basic words about the vehicles ( the车chē car group) is not that hard. As you may have discovered, the word车chē is the root word for many vehicles. In details, the names of the vehicles are:
汽车 qì chē-car
校车 xiào chē-school bus
火车 huǒ chē-train
摩托车 mó tuó chē-motorcycle
警车 jǐng chē-police car
救火车 jiù huǒ chē-fire engine
救护车 jiù hù chē-ambulance
自行车 zì xíng chē-bicycle
我坐校车上学。 Wǒ zuò xiào chē shàng xué.-I go to school by school bus.
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 names of the vehicles.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose car.

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