Lesson 2 “這是”

Today was lesson 2. I bought a oral communication textbook to make meeting better. This book introduced basic Traditional Chinese patterns.

I studied Traditional Chinese with J. Today lesson was about “這是XX”. This means “This is XX” in English.

The pronunciation of “這是” is difficult for me because japanese doesn’t have zhe and shi. I tried many times.

Before this lesson, I listened to textbook CD and imitated the pronunciations, but my pronunciation is poor. J taught me how to use tongue. Finally I succeeded to saying fluently.

I learned other words, “一二三…十”. I memorlized…大変だったw
