Inquiry Question

How would you create a personal dictionary to learn and remember Chinese for numbers or greetings or other topics?


Creating a Personal Dictionary

Students create a personal dictionary to help them learn and remember Chinese for an upcoming assignment. Students can include Chinese vocabulary that they want to learn or revise such as numbers, greetings, colours, family members, tones and age. Students could write in Pinyin, characters or a mixture of both.

Reading Chinese Characters

This resource will help students to recognise the Chinese characters used to tell the time and help them understand the characters required to increase their vocabulary so they can talk about themselves and their daily lives.
