Dear students,

 

Happy new year!!! (新年快乐!/ xīnnián kuàilè)

I’ve recently just returned to Taiwan from my vacation in Sydney

(悉尼 xīní).

It was wonderful and I thought it would be a good idea that I share you some nice photos 相片xiàngpiàn of my trip as well as some Chinese about travel!

 

Here are just some sentences that I come up with, please let me know if there’s anything you want to learn about traveling in Mandarin, I can also make a few videos on this topic! ;)

 

English

Simplified

Chinese

Pinyin

1.     Travel

2.     On vacation

3.     I’m on vacation now.

我现在在度假。

wǒ xiànzài zài dùjià.

4.     I love to travel.

我爱旅行。

Wǒ ài lǚxíng.

5.     I’m going to Taiwan for vacation next month.

我下个月要去台湾度假。

Wǒ xià gè yuè yào qù táiwān dùjià.

6.     Do you have fun in Australia?

澳大利亚好玩吗?

Àodàlìyǎ hǎowán ma?

7.     I had a wonderful time in Sydney!

悉尼很好玩!

Xīní hěn hǎowán!

8.     How do you like Sydney?

你喜欢悉尼吗?

Nǐ xǐhuān xīní ma?

 

l  Note ( sentences 6 & 7 ):

In Mandarin, we have a different expression from English when saying I have/ had a good time in a place. In Mandarin, we would say “place very good play.”

The expression “good play好玩hǎowán is a direct translation which means I have a good time in this place and there’s a lot to do and see to have fun in a place.
