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)
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…
下一个是:蚂蚁(mǎyǐ)
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.
下一个是:蚊子(wénzi)
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.

And not to be a pain, but "beatle" should be spelled "beetle"

Hi. The pinyin for 毛毛虫 is incorrectly written as e3xin1.
