Studying Chinese Mini-Posters: Command Words & Some Common Chinese Verbs

Standard

This is the final post in a series of five posts providing some printable mini-posters useful for Mandarin study.

The first chart in today’s post contains fourteen very basic verbs as well as their Chinese translations and the corresponding pinyin. (The last one, “to play basketball,” feels a little random after the rest of the list, but I wanted to provide some structure for talking about playing sports using “打,” and basketball seems to be among the most popular sports I hear friends in China love.)

Here’s a preview of the mini poster:

The second chart in today’s post is a very elementary poster displaying a few basic commands. It’s a useful visual aid to have in a language learning area for early Chinese language learners. The tutor can point to it and the student can reference it as the tutor gives basic instructions. The chart contains six basic commands:

  • Sit down.
  • Stand up.
  • Write it down.
  • Read it with me.
  • Turn to page xxx.
  • Read it once./ Read it twice.
