Jul. 8, 2022

It is well known that songs can be a very effective tool for kids to learn Chinese. Learning to sing Chinese songs can encourage your child to speak in Chinese more, at the same time improve his or her fluency, enunciation and articulation and the language points in the songs will be much easier to memorize.

After learning this song, your kid will know how to greet others in Chinese. Now play the video and sing along together!

The following expressions are what your child needs to learn in the song:

1. nǐhǎo
 你好
 hello

In Chinese, “nǐhǎo 你好” is a common phrase for greetings. It’s equivalent to “hello” or “wish you a good day” in English. For example:

Nǐhǎo, Xiǎo Míng!
你好, 小 明!
Hello, Xiao Ming!

2. nǐ hǎo ma
 你 好 吗
 how do you do

Basically, “Nǐ hǎo ma? (你好吗?)” has the same meaning as “How are you?” or “How do you do?” Here is an example:

Hǎo jiǔ bú jiàn, nǐ hǎo ma?
好 久 不 见,你 好 吗?
It’s been a long time, how are you?

3. zǎoshàng
 早上
 morning

Zǎo shàng 早上” means “morning” or “in the morning” in English. Here are two examples:

Zǎoshàng hǎo!
早上   好!
Good morning!

Wǒ měitiān zǎoshàng qù shàngxué.
我  每天   早上  去 上学。
I go to school in the morning every day.

4. wǎnshàng
 晚上
 evening

Wǎnshàng 晚上” means “evening”, “in the evening”, “night”, or “at night” in English. Here are two examples:

Wǎnshàng hǎo
晚上  好!
Good evening!

Nǐ wǎnshàng dōu zuò shénme?
你 晚上  都 做 什么?
What do you usually do in the evening?

5. hǎo
 好
 good

Using “hǎo 好” by itself is very simple as it directly translates to the English words “good”, “nice” or “well”. Here is an example:

Nǐ Zhōngwén shuō de hěn hǎo.
你  中文  说 得 很 好。
You speak Chinese very well.
