Lesson Transcript

大家好!欢迎来到Chinese weekly words. Hi I am Yinru and let’s find out together what we will have today. Oh okay, it’s bugs, we are going to have bugs today. Oh my gosh!
First we have 虫子(chóngzi)
虫子(chóngzi)is – it just means bug or bugs."bug"
很多小女生都特别害怕虫子。(hěn duō xiǎo nǚshēng dōu tèbié hàipà chóngzi.)”Many girls or many little girls, they are so scared of bugs. "
毛毛虫(ěxīn) is ”caterpillar"
I played with 毛毛虫(ěxīn) when I was young. Yeah the green ones. 毛毛虫(ěxīn)
他觉得毛毛虫软软的,很恶心。(tā juéde máomaochóng ruǎn ruǎn de hěn ěxīn.)"He thinks caterpillars are soft and gross."
I don’t think so. I think they are kind of cute.
Okay, 下一个是:甲虫(jiǎchóng)
甲虫(jiǎchóng) is a ”beatle"
有一只甲虫在吃西瓜。(yǒu yì zhǐ jiǎchóng zài chī xīguā.)"There's a beatle that is eating watermelon."
because I remember when I was a kid, we used to like catch a beetle and put them on the watermelon because they seem to like watermelon. I don’t know about other beetles outside China but…
蚂蚁(mǎyǐ) "ant"
蚂蚁的力量很大。(mǎyǐ de lìliang hěn dà.)"Ants got a lot of power."
They can move like heavy stuff together.
蚊子(wénzi) is ”mosquito"
我很惹蚊子。(wǒ hěn rě wénzi.) It means ”Mosquitoes always bite me."
Oh so that’s the end. We talked about bugs today. I will be here with you next week on Chinese weekly words. 再见! Bye bye.
