Lesson Transcript

Hello! 大家好!欢迎来到Chinese weekly words. Hi everyone and welcome to Chinese weekly words. This week, we are going to talk about Tableware. Yeah tableware. Okay.
Okay. First one 第一个是:勺子(sháozi)
勺子(sháozi) can mean a "spoon” or a “ladle"
我用勺子喝汤。(Wǒ yòng sháozi hē tāng.)"I use a spoon to have my soup."
我用勺子喝汤。(Wǒ yòng sháozi hē tāng.)
下一个是:咖啡杯(kāfēi bēi)
咖啡 (kāfēi) “coffee”, 杯 (bēi) is either it could be a cup or a glass or a mug. So 咖啡杯(kāfēi bēi) means ”coffee mug”.
星巴克(Xīngbākè) It means "Starbucks". So that’s a Chinese name.
So “this is a Starbucks coffee mug.” 这是一个星巴克的咖啡杯。(Zhè shì yí gè Xīngbākè de kāfēibēi.)
All right, we talked about 杯子(bēizi) is ”cup"
Cup, cup, cup, cup, cup! You know the cupcake. In Chinese 杯子蛋糕 (bēizi dàngāo)。蛋糕 (dàngāo) is “cake”, 杯子 (bēizi) is a “cup”, so “cupcake” is 杯子蛋糕 (bēizi dàngāo).
So you can say 我喜欢吃杯子蛋糕。(Wǒ xǐhuān chī bēizi dàngāo.)"I like cupcakes."
下一个是:盘子(pánzi)
盘子(pánzi) is a ”plate"
我不想洗盘子。(Wǒ bù xiǎng xǐ pánzi.) means "I do not want to wash the plates."
我不想洗盘子。(Wǒ bù xiǎng xǐ pánzi.) No, no, no!
下一个是:茶壶(cháhú)
茶壶(cháhú) is something you use to boil the tea. So it’s a "teapot"
茶壶(cháhú) is like this… Can you see my arm and this and this is a teapot.
我是一个大茶壶 (Wǒ shì yīgè dà cháhú).
这是一个很漂亮的茶壶。(Zhè shì yí gè hěn piàoliang de cháhú.)"This is a pretty teapot."
So that’s the end. We talked about tableware and I hope you like this video and I will be here with you next week on Chinese weekly words. 我们下周再见! Bye bye.

Hi 卫力,


The grammer of WHEN comes here!

当。。。的时候

So, 当 Yinru 教我们的时候她很可爱,她的课非常好。

Point: 当。。。的时候 always used in the beginning of a sentence.

Usually, we don't translate "be" before the adjective,eg,we just say "she very cute",她很可爱(tā hěn kě ài)

Hello 卫力,


Your translation is quite good.

Only a few changes.

我真喜欢你们的课。In this case, we use 你们 for people.(你 is just for one person)

太可爱了。(Please add subject before it. )

And in Chinese, we don't use cute or lovely so often to apraise all the thing, we usually say in detail.

Cute or lovely are just for girls, dogs, voice, clothes,etc..

If you want to say, the recording of Chinese is cute, you can use 可爱.

But if you want to say something about the lesson itself, you can say it is well composed or something else.


Thank you.
