Welcome back from holiday! I hope you all had an enjoyable cool and wet Songkran.
We are entering the last term of the year. During this term, we will be learning more words and expanding our sentence patterns. We will also consolidate the prior learning and at the end, you will be surprised to see how much Chinese you can already speak.
We will start the term with hobbies. I am sure there are many hobbies enjoyed by you and your family/friends, so let's start with a few here:
看电视kàn diànshì = watch TV
听音乐tīng yīnyüè = listen to music
画画huāhuā = painting / drawing
看书kànshū = read book
打乒乓球dǎ pīngpāngqiú = play pingpong
玩电脑wán diànnǎo = play computer
弹吉它tánjitā = play guitar
打篮球dǎlánqiú = play basketball

Asking a question in Chinese
Y4 Learning Question:
Can I ask what fruit people have and understand the “yes/no” response?
你有草莓吗？nǐ yǒu cǎoméi ma? （Do you have strawberry?
有，我有草莓。yǒu, wǒ yǒu cǎoméi. (Yes, I have strawberry)
没有，我没有草莓。méiyǒu,wǒ méiyǒu cǎoméi。(No, I do not have strawberry)
It’s easy to ask question in Chinese.
“吗ma” at the end of a sentence changes the sentence into a question.
“我有草莓wǒ yǒu cǎoméi” means “I have strawberry”
but when”吗ma” is added at the end,
“我有草莓吗? wǒ yǒu cǎoméi ma?” means “Do I have strawberry?”
Here is a list of the words we have learned, now try to remember these words and ask questions using "ma" and these words.
