So I’m writing this one because today I actually managed my first full conversation at a shop in Chinese, and it may only be small but it felt good to know I’m actually learning some stuff!
I’ve been having 2 Chinese lessons a week for about 5 weeks now so we’ve actually managed to cover a lot. Chinese is such a hard language to learn because it has tones which changes the pronunciation ever so slightly, but means it is very very easy to cock up and say the wrong thing.
bǐ – means pen
Bī – means vagina
So it is FAR too easy to ask for a vagina instead of a pen 🙃
Another very easy one to mistake is jī can either be chicken or prostitute.
