Learn Chinese: What Can You Do?

Which one do you like better?



Nǐ hǎo.

Welcome to Chapter 5, Where Are You From?. In this chapter you will learn how to ask people what country they are from. You will also learn how to tell people what country you are from.

To make your life easier, note in the vocabulary section in dialogue set 2 that to express that you are a person from a particular country, you just say the country name and then add “ren” to the end of it (with the exception of England).

Good luck and don’t forget to work on those tones!
