- Talk about our holiday in Mandarin
- Write about holiday in Chinese characters
Talking about the holiday in Mandarin is not too difficult. As you may have found, we need to add 了le next to a verb to indicate past tense. In details, the words and sentences of holiday are:
假期 jià qī ( holiday)
在假期 zài jià qī ( during the holiday)
我去了 Wǒ qù le ( I went to)
我坐了飞机。 Wǒ zuò le fēi jī. ( I took the airplane.)
我在新加坡。 Wǒ zài Xīn jiā pō. ( I stayed in Singapore.)
我吃了 Wǒ chī le ( I ate)
我喝了 Wǒ hē le ( I drank)
我买了 Wǒ mǎi le ( I bought)
我没有买 Wǒ méi you mǎi ( I didn't buy)
我听到了 Wǒ tīng dào le ( I heard)
我看到了 Wǒ kàn dào le ( I saw)
我闻到了 Wǒ wén dào le ( I smelled)
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 holiday.
