A Conversation for Handy Mandarin Chinese Phrases

Help in Mandarin!!

Post 1


Hello, new member, I work in a High School in Liverpool. In September, we enrolled a Chinese girl into Year 7 (11-12 yr old) who had only been in the country a couple of days. Obviously it's near the end of the school year and we have just had her exam results. She is a very bright girl, but these results do not reflect her ability. Can anybody give me a few simple phrases to speak to her? Things like: do you understand? can you explain it to me? simple things that will make her feel quite comfortable. She has a good understanding of the English language but we don't feel she can express herself as well as she understands. Cheers

hi i have been learning with my family. we are studying at home, but also speak to lots of chinese people in our area. we ask them if we could ask them a question and then ask them in chinese. we now have many chinese friends. we are also reading lots of chinese literature from many places. we are JW's and we want to help people understand our beleifs, so this helps too.

speak to as many chinese as you can, they are very helpful
