Key Learning Points:

播种 (bōzhòng) v. to grow /to plant

The Chinese character “种” has two basic pronunciations: zhǒng and zhòng. “种” is usually used as a noun when pronounced “zhǒng.” For example: 种子 (zhǒngzi) seed. When “种” is pronounced “zhòng,” it is normally used as a verb. For example: 种地 (zhòngdì) to farm.

Example:

Nóngfū men yǒu shí zài chūntiān bōzhòng, yǒu shí zài qiūtiān bōzhòng.
农夫 们         有 时    在   春天       播种,     有 时    在   秋天     播种。
Sometimes farmers plant in the spring, and sometimes in the fall.

角落 (jiǎoluò) n. corner

Example:

Nǐ kěyǐ bāng wǒ bǎ fàng zài jiǎoluò de sǎn ná lái ma?
你 可以 帮    我 把  放     在   角落    的  伞 拿 来  吗?
Can you help me out by getting that umbrella in the corner?
