1. Say the words of jobs in Mandarin
2. Ask and answer questions about jobs in Mandarin
Learning the words of jobs in Mandarin is not too difficult. As you may have found, some words of jobs have the same basic word, for example, 师shī by itself means master, so it makes the root word for three different words, as in 老师lǎo shī (teacher), 律师 lǜ shī (lawyer), and设计师 shè jì shī (designer). In details, the words of jobs are:
工作 gōng zuò (work)
老师 lǎo shī (teacher)
律师 lǜ shī (lawyer)
设计师 shè jì shī (designer)
商人 shāng rén (businessman)
银行家 yín háng jiā (banker)
艺术家 yì shù jiā (artist)
经理 jīng lǐ (manager)
他做什么工作？ Tā zuò shén me gōng zuò? (What is his job?)
他是医生。 Tā shì yī shēng. (He is a doctor. )
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 words of jobs.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose job.

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