Thanksgiving Day is coming; do you prepare your feast? Today, we will talk about some new words about Thanksgiving Day.
First is Thanksgiving Day — 感恩节(gǎn ēn jié).
感恩 means thanksgiving 节 means festival and holiday, such as 圣诞节 means Christmas, 情人节 means Valentine’s day and Chinese festival 中秋节 means mid-autumn day.
What do you prepare for your Thanksgiving Day feast? Turkey and Pumpkin are needed,perhaps there are corn and wine. Let’s see how to say these foods in Chinese.
Turkey — 火鸡 (huǒ jī)
Pumpkin — 南瓜(nán ɡuā)
Corn — 玉米 (yù mǐ)
Wine — 酒 ( jiǔ)
Grape wine — 葡萄酒 (pú tɑo jiǔ)
On Thanksgiving Day, does your city have grand masquerade parade?
masquerade is 化妆舞会(huà zhuānɡ wǔ huì), parade is 游行(yóu xínɡ)
Or will you prepare a masquerade party in your home? What will you dress yourself up in
the party?Instead of saying happy thanksgiving day , you can say to your friends 感恩节快乐(ɡǎn ēn jié kuài lè).
Ending: Ok, thanks for listening; we have approached the end of this lesson, happy Thanksgiving Day
感恩节快乐(ɡǎn ēn jié kuài lè). Our spring festival is coming too; you can learn some Chinese and come to china to feel the difference between our festival and yours. And I hope it can be of help to you in your Chinese learning. The Chinese cast teaching Chinese from echineselearning.com.
