This is a topic designed for New Members.

Just add a comment below with a Chinese word that you learned recently. 


"I just had my first class so we learned Ni Hao, hello" or "I listened to a Chinese podcast a few days where I learned Robot 机器人 jī qì rén"

You can use pinyin or characters, whichever is better for your level. If you want to look up the word to make sure you have it right you can use

So what is a word that have you learned recently?

I am not an expert here(!), but I have come across 而且 erqie used as 'and' in the sense of 'furthermore' as well.

I've learned 泡妞[pàoniū]. It means seducing women.

For example, you could ask your friends to go out with you tonight for 泡妞 at a club.

I don't know if this word is bad or not. It's useful, I guess.

For me, I was learning languages/countries. I don't know why, but I never learned Spanish until today.

Spanish (Language)
I find it interesting that I hadn't learned it because that is what I studied in college.

西班牙语 should read Xībānyáyǔ 

西班牙文 Xībānyáwén 

of course they both mean Spanish. 


Is used to refer to pretty (graceful!) young women. But is terrible to write this when your square is less than 1 square centimetre and your pen bleeds.

earlier this month was my first day back in Shanghai for work and everyone went to lunch w/o me. afterward one guy suggested i go get take-out or 外卖 (wàimài). i guess i am not too popular with my co-workers, but hey, i learned a new word that i won't forget too soon. 

有钱就是任性。 Yǒu qián jiùshì rènxìng.  Rich person can be spoiled.   It's the most popular Chinese saying among younger this year.

Well, I learned how to say ice cream in Chinese, which is ”冰其林 “ (bīng qí lín.)

我最近学“目标”的词!哈哈在这里,这个词很有用!Haha, I am so excited to learn, and a goal should do just that!

mama Huhu. Which means so so if asked 'how are you'

I've just learned that Chinese people don't like to have bare feet when at home... It is important to wear slippers 

  tuō xǐ

Ha ha so you don't catch a cold.

My Chinese friend taught me one I cannot forget recently which is broccoli: 绿色的西兰花 Lǜsè de xī lánhuā. Something else I might add is that she says that 'me' (e.g. 什么) is most often pronounced as mo (at least in Beijing).
