- Read information about someone in Mandarin
- Write a short paragraph to introduce oneself in Chinese characters
I have made 5 learning sets to cover a wide range of topics. In details, the first set is:
我叫 Wǒ jiào (My name is)
我姓 Wǒ xìng (My family name is)
我的中文名字是 Wǒ de zhōng wén míng zi shi (My Chinese name is )
我没有中文名字。 Wǒ méi you zhōng wén míng zi. (I don't have a Chinese name.)
因为 yīn wéi (because)
我上国际学校。 Wǒ shàng guó jì xué xiào. (I go to an international school.)
我上五年级。 Wǒ shàng wǔ nián jí. (I am in Grade 5.)
我家有四口人。 Wǒ jiā yǒu sì kǒu rén. ( There are four people in my family.)
我没有宠物。 Wǒ méi you chǒng wù. ( I don't have a pet.)
我去过中国和泰国。 Wǒ qù guo Zhōng guó hé Tài guó. ( I have been to China and Thailand. )
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 sentences about myself 1.

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