What’s Your Favorite Animal?

Let’s look at the pictures and say their names in Chinese.

狗 (gǒu) dog

You can also say “小狗 (xiǎogǒu)” which means “puppy.”

大象(dàxiàng) elephant

猫 (māo) cat

You can also say “猫咪 (māomī)” which means “kitty” or “kitten.”

猴子 (hóuzi) monkey

Example:

         Nǐ zuì xǐhuan de dònghuàpiān shì shénme?
Cathy: 你最喜欢     的   动画片           是   什么?
What’s your favorite cartoon show?

         Wǒ zuì xǐhuan de dònghuàpiān shì “Māo hé lǎoshǔ.”
Jim: 我 最   喜欢    的   动画片           是 《猫和老鼠》。
My favorite cartoon show is “Tom and Jerry.”

         Wǒ zuì xǐhuan de shì “Mǐ lǎoshǔ hé táng lǎo yā.”
Anna: 我 最   喜欢    的  是 《米老鼠和唐老鸭》。
My favoritecartoon shows are “Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.”

Learning Point:

From the above example sentences, you can see that “S+最喜欢 (zuì xǐhuan)+something” means someone likes something or likes doing something best. For example: 我最喜欢绿色。(Wǒ zuì xǐhuan lǜsè.) I like green best.
