Chinese Vocabulary Lists

These Chinese vocabulary lists are a great way to help you learn the language. They are categorized by topic and include words that are used in everyday conversation. Most lists will have an audio mp3 file to help you hear how to pronounce each word.

The Chinese language is spoken by over 1.2 billion people, making it the most spoken language in the world. It’s also one of the oldest languages, with records dating back to 1500 BC.

Chinese is a tonal language, meaning that the same word can have different meanings depending on the tone it’s said in. For example, the word “ma” can mean mother, hemp, horse or scold depending on how it’s said. This can make it a tricky language for English speakers to learn, but with a bit of practice, it can be done.

The best way to enhance your Chinese studies is to immerse yourself in the language. You can do this by watching Chinese TV, listening to Chinese music, reading books in Chinese, and speaking with native speakers. Of course living in China is the ultimate way to achieve this.
