Lesson Transcript

Eric: Top 25 Chinese Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 20- What's the weather like? in Chinese. In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Chinese learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question, “What's the weather like?” In Chinese this is..
Cho: 天气怎么样?
The first word in the question is
Cho: 天气
Eric: meaning “weather.”
Cho: (Slow, by syllable) 天气
Eric: Now repeat.
Cho: 天气
{Pause}
Eric: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Cho: 怎么样
Eric: meaning “how.”
Cho: (Slow, by syllable) 怎么样
Eric: Now repeat.
Cho: 怎么样
{Pause}
Listen to the the entire question and repeat.
Cho: 天气怎么样?

Cho: 晴天。
Eric: "It's sunny.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Cho: (Slow) 晴天。
{pause}
Eric: Listen to the speaker say, “It's sunny,”and then repeat.
Cho: 晴天。
{pause}
Eric: If it’s cloudy, you can say..
Cho: 多云。
Eric: "It's cloudy.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Cho: (Slow) 多云。
{pause}
Eric: Listen to the speaker say, “It's cloudy”, and then repeat.
Cho: 多云。
{pause}
Eric: If it’s foggy, you can say..
Cho: 有雾。
Eric: "It's foggy.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Cho: (Slow) 有雾。
{pause}
Eric: Listen to the speaker say, “It's foggy”, and then repeat.
Cho: 有雾。
{pause}
Eric: If it’s windy, you can say..
Cho: 有风。
Eric: "It's windy.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Cho: (Slow) 有风。
{pause}
Eric: Listen to the speaker say, “It's windy,” and then repeat.
Cho: 有风。
{pause}
