Hello, welcome to Chinese Learn Chinese Lessons. My name is Len and today I would like to teach you a few words in Chinese, and that is hello, thank you, welcome and goodbye.
So how do you say that in Chinese that is, ni hao, xié xié, huan ying, zái jián. So this has been a request on YouTube. I recommend everybody to send me a request on YouTube for the words or sentences you want to speak in Chinese and I can correct them into such 10 minutes mini lessons for you, so you can master one sentence or a few words in Chinese.
So how do you write ni hao, xié xié, huan ying, zái jián into Chinese characters and this is the way you’ll write it.
Okay, so let’s have a look at different words in Chinese. The first word is nî hâo, so nî means you and hâo means good. So nî hâo, you good or in English, hello.
The second word is xié xié so it means thank you, so xié means thank so altogether xié xié means thank, thank in Chinese or in English thank you.
The third word is huān yìng, so huān means cheerful and yìng means meet, so cheerful to meet you or in English that means welcome. So huān yìng, welcome.
The fourth word is zái jián, so zái means again and jián means see, so zái jián, nice to see you again or in English, see you. So that’s exactly the meaning of each Chinese characters.
Let’s have a look at the writing of each individual character. So the first character is nî. so nî is most likely a left and right structure and let’s have a look at the demonstration.
Okay, that’s fantastic. That’s exactly the way of writing this character nî, so you can see that nî the Pinyin is nî, so N pronounced nî and î means e, so nî with the third tone which goes from up to down and then up again. It is nî, nî, nî or in a shorter version nî, nî, nî. The second character is hâo, so hâo means good. It is a left and right structure so that’s exactly the way of writing it.
Okay, so let’s have a look at the pronunciation. It is hao. So H pronounce H and ao pronounced ao, so H ao, hao always the third tone which goes from up to down and then up again. It is hâo, hâo, hâo, in the shorter version hâo, hâo, hâo.
The next character is xié, so xié means thank and it is a left middle right structure character, which looks a bit complicated, so let’s watch the demonstration for writing this character.
Okay, you’re fantastic following the demonstration. You might just try it yourself and master it in a few minutes writing this character xié. So you can see that the pinyin is xié so x pronounced z and ié pronounced ié, so altogether xié, xié, with the fourth tone which goes from up to down, it is xié, xié, xié or in a shorter version xié, xié, xié.
So the next character is huān, so you can see that huān is more likely a left and right structure, so that’s the demonstration of writing this character huān.
Okay, back to this character, if you’ll have to look at the pinyin, it is huan, so H pronounced H and U pronounced U, AN pronounced ang, so huan with the first tone which is totally flat instead of saying huan, it is huān, huān, huān or in a shorter version, huān, huān, huān.
The next character is yìng, so you can see that yìng is a half-rounded structure character. You write the inner part before you write the outer structure and that’s the demonstration for it.
Okay, so back to that character. You can see that pronunciation is Y I N G, so Y is e and ing pronounced yung, so yeyeing, yìng, yeyeing, yìng, with the second tone which goes from down to up, it is yìng, yìng, yìng or in the shorter version yìng, yìng, yìng.
So the next character is xié, so xié is kind of like up to down structure character. It is entered as one piece, font by one component, so that’s exactly the way of writing it.
Okay, so back to the pronunciation, it is zái, so Z pronounced zee and AI pronounced I, so zeei, zái , zeei, zái , zeei, zái, with the fourth tone which goes from up to down, it is zái in the shorter version, zái, zái, zái.
So the next character is jián. And again, this is the fourth tone so you can see jián you’ll write it from up to down and it is just a one single component. So if you have to look at the demonstration, that’s exactly the way of writing it.
Okay, so back to the pronunciation of this character, it is J I A N, so J pronounced gee and I pronounced ee, and AN pronounced ang, so ian altogether pronounced iyen, so geeyen, jián, geeyen, jián, geeyen, jián, with the fourth tone which goes from up to down, it is jián and in the shorter version, jián, jián, jián.
Okay, so altogether for all the words nî hâo = hello, xié xié = thank you, huān yìng = welcome, zái jián = see you.
