Mandarin vocabulary is rather straight forward compared to English. For instance,

Computer 脑 diàn nǎo
Handphone话 diàn huà
Battery 池 diàn chí
Movie 影 diàn yǐng

Do you notice that the first word is the same? 电 diàn = electric

– 脑 nǎo = brain. 电脑 diàn nǎo literally direct translate is “electric brain”. It actually means computer.
– 话 huà = talk. 电话 diàn huà literally direct translate is “electric talk”. It actually means telephone. 
– 池 chí = reservoir. 电池 diàn chí literally direct translate is “electric reservoir. It actually means battery.
– 影 yǐng = shadow. 电影 diàn yǐng literally direct translate is “electric shadow”. It actually means movie.

Take a guess. What is 电视机 diàn shì jī ?  Tips: 视 shì = view ; 机  jī = machine

Your answer : _____________


This is the formula to create Mandarin sentences.
S = Subjects (who) come at the beginning of the sentence
T = Time (when) expressions come immediately before or after the subject. 
P = Place (where) where an event happened, the place expression comes before the verb. 
A = Action (what) verb + object, do something.

The sequence is Subject, Time, Place and Action (STPA)

Princess | yesterday | went to the hospital | see the doctor.

gōng zhǔ | zuó tiān | qù yī yuàn | kàn yī shēng



In order to speak fluent Mandarin, it is crucial for students to speak Mandarin everyday. That is why we create whatsapp group for our students to speak Mandarin everyday


We don’t encourage Beginner students to learn Chinese characters at the beginning as it may not be easy for you. Most people agree that Chinese characters is the hardest language to learn. So we leave this to Step 5, only after you can speak around 85% of commonly used Mandarin words.
