Teaching Chinese

Paul’s father gave Paul a shirt with three Chinese characters on it.
Paul說這三個字念Wall Eye Knee。就是I Love You 。
Paul said these three words read Wall Eye Knee. Which meant “ I Love You.”
可是,中中說:「不對!不對!應該念:「 我 愛 你。」
But, Zhongzhong said: “No! No! You should read: “I love you.”
大家說 :「哇!中中會中文,真了不起。」
Everyone said: “Wow! Zhongzhong can speak Chinese, really amazing.”
The teacher wants Zhongzhong to teach everyone Chinese. Zhongzhong taught them: sun, moon, mountains, people, women,
Zhongzhong also taught them: children, horses, birds, and fish.
大家說:「Ah! Easy!Easy!」
Everyone said: “Ah! Easy! Easy!”
Zhongzhong combined the two characters to form another character.
Paul說:「Ah! Magic! Magic!」
Paul said: “Ah! Magic! Magic!”
Everyone said, “Learning Chinese is so much fun.”
大家都想學中文。 Everyone wants to learn Chinese.
Zhongzhong told everyone: “To learn Chinese, the four tones are very important.”
Zhongzhong asks everyone to repeat after him carefully:
Mom rides a horse, and the horse is slow. Mom scolds the horse
Everyone read it very carefully, but after reading it over and over again, it was still a mess.
校長看見大家都叫中中Mom! Mom! Mom!…嚇了一大跳,不知道發生了什麼事?
The principal was shocked when he saw everyone calling Zhongzhong Mom! Mom! Mom!… What happened?

媽媽 您是一棵 大樹,Mom, you are a big tree

我是樹上的小毛蟲I am the caterpillar on the tree.

我每天吃樹上的葉子I eat the leaves on the tree every day.

媽媽沒有怨言,Mother holds no grudges.

媽媽您這一棵大樹,Mother you are a grand tree.

還是不停的長出新葉子,Still is constantly growing new leaves,

使我成長使我茁壯,Letting me mature and become stronger

媽媽我們感恩您Mother we are grateful. Continue reading
