Studying Chinese Mini-Posters: Talking About Time

Standard

This is the second post in a series of posts sharing free printable mini-posters for early stages of Mandarin study. Today I’d like to share three posters that can provide some useful expressions as well as information that can be used when talking about time.

The first of today’s posters shows a clock with Chinese numbers one through twelve written on it and shows some common phrases used for asking about time and answering what time it is. The English, Chinese characters, and pinyin for each expression are included.

Here’s a preview of the mini poster:

The second of today’s posters talks about identifying when something happened or will happen. It includes how to identify times such as “last year,” “last month,” “last week,” and so on, continuing through the present and then into future times as well. The bottom of the poster gives a brief summary of when to use “” in regards to different units of time.

The third of today’s printable posters displays some words for talking about the amount of time as well as the phrases “in the past…” and “in the future…” The bottom contains some examples for designating when something happened or will happens. This part goes along with the previous poster; they’re meant to be hung side by side.
