Did you know?

  • Each character in Chinese corresponds to a single syllable.
  • The meaning of Chinese syllables depends on the tone with which it is spoken.
  • A tone may change slightly depending on the tones of its neighboring syllables. The most common example that you will encounter is when two third tones occur together; the first third tone will change into a tone similar to a second tone.
  • Nouns in Chinese do not change between singular and plural. Instead, a number or counter indicates the noun’s quantity.
  • Verb forms don’t change based on the person performing the action. This is one aspect of learning Chinese that is much easier than many other languages!
  • Chinese has no exact equivalent of “yes”. Instead of affirming with one word, a Chinese speaker generally repeats the verb
