Chinese lesson: Electricity plus Brain means Computer

in Steem Skillshare2 years ago

Hello everyone!!
Welcome to another chinese lesson. Chinese language is trendy now as China is 2nd largest economy in the world!!!
Today I will show you how chinese people create new characters by combining old characters. These characters normally easy to remember and understand logic of compounding them.



  1. 电影 [ diàn yǐng] - movie or a film. 影 means picture, image, shadow or photograph.
  2. 电视 [ diàn shì ] - TV or television. 视 means to look at, to inspect and it consist of 礻 which means a spirit, and it gives just pronunciation to the character and 见 that means to see, so it gives a meaning to the character.


你常常用电脑吗? - Do you often use computer?

你看过这部电影吗?- Have you seen this movie?

Homework: learn new words and practice writing them.
