Grade 4/5 ES1 – Countries, Languages and Nationalities

Let’s review where you’re from, your nationality and the language you speak.

Countries

People always want to know what country (国家– guó jiā) are you from. The Chinese character 国 (guó) comes up again and again:

USA (美国 – měi guó)

England (英国 – yīng guó)

South Korea (韩国 – hán guó)

Thailand (泰国 – tài guó)

The Chinese character 国use as a short form of 国家 and other Chinese names for countries are more of a transliteration (sound like the actual name).

Canada (加拿大 – jiā ná dà)

Malaysia (马来西亚– mǎ lái xī yà)

Italy (意大利 – yì dà lì)

How can you ask/answer about where a person is from? Here are the question and the corresponding answer:

你是哪国人? (nǐ shì nǎ rén)

Which country are you from?

我是… 的 (wǒ shì… de)

I’m from…

Nationalities

It is easy to learn nationalities in Chinese language – simply add the character for person (人 – rén):

German (德国人 – dé guó rén)

Indian (印度人 – yìn dù rén)

To say your nationality, it’s quite simple: I’m… (我是…人 – wǒ shì… rén)

Languages

Talking about languages (语言 – yǔ yán), here are some terms -

Mandarin (普通话 – pǔ tōng huà/中文 – zhōng wén/汉语 – hàn yǔ)

Cantonese (广东话 – guǎng dōng huà)

English (英语 – yīng yǔ)

French (法语 – fǎ yǔ)

Spanish (西班牙语 – xī bān yá yǔ)

Here’s how you would ask/answer about what language you speak:

What languages can you speak?

你会说什么语言? (nǐ huì shuō shén me yǔ yán)

I can speak…

我会说… (wǒ huì shuō…)
