Words for the week:

We borrowed these words from a friend's site. (Thanks Brandi) Thomas & I are trying to learn too & thought that this was a great post to share & a great place to start!

The words for this week are:

Hello - Ni Hao (Nee How)
Goodbye - Zia Jian (Tseye Geean)
Please - Qing (Ching)
Thank You - Xie Xie (Shee -eh Shee-eh)
You are welcome - Bu Ke Qi (boo kua che)
I Love You - Wo Ai Ni (wo eye nee)
Don’t be afraid - Bie Pa (bee a pah)


1) The combination of the “ao” makes the “ow” sound as in “how” and “now”
2) The vowel “I” makes the long “e” sound (as in “see”) when preceded by consonants other than z, c, s, zh, ch, sh or r
3) “X” is pronounced “sh” as in sheep
4)“Q” is pronounced “ch” as in chore

Good luck! I've got most of these down, now I've got to add a few more for next week. Hopefully while I'm learning those, I won't forget these :)
