Hello Iskandar,

Chinese and English grammar are very different, I suggest that you go through the lessons and pick up the grammar bit by bit.

1. I = 我

2. am = 是

3. hungry = 饿

4. give = 给

5. me = 我

6. food = 食物

But the sentence is translated into "我饿了,给我食物。"


As always, let us know if you have any questions.

Miss Rui,


Great to hear the Mandarin voicing of the teacher Miss Rui ; at this moment _ please let 's take that more slowly ; let the student pick the words vs sentence and Rui translates to the Mandarin voice as well written characters example as follows :"" I am hungry _ give me food ( plural vs single forms ?? ) ""; where to get the Mandarin vocabularies ?? Tks.


1. I =

2. am =

3. hungry =

4. give =

5. me =

6. food =

Hello Susan,


Thank you for your comment. "黄色" and "黄" mean the same thing, "yellow". "色" literally means "colour", it can be omitted.


As always, let us know if you have any questions.

Elsewhere I was taught that a colour always has sè at the end, eg huángsè or zōngsè. Here yellow is huáng on its own. What is the difference?
