Learn Mandarin Online from Teachers and Students
Welcome to the second post in the "20 Questions to Basic Fluency" series. If you missed the first question, take some time to go back and answer it or add some new information for all the beginners out there. All levels are welcome to reply. Here is today's question:
Nǐ shì nǎ guórén?
Where are you from?
Wǒ shì měiguó rén. Nǐ ne?
I'm American. And you?
If you are not sure how to say what country you are from in Chinese, check out this list http://www.nationsonline.org/oneworld/country_names_in_chinese.htm
There are other ways to ask "Where are your from?" in Chinese depending on what information you are looking for. You may want to ask about what city, what state or what region a person is from. Or you may want to ask about where a person lives instead of asking where the person comes from. If you know how to ask these more specific questions about a person's origin or living arrangements, we would love to see them in the reply.
Ok, it's your turn to take a shot at it! Write your answer as best you can in Chinese or Pinyin. We look forward to reading where you are from!
