At the Market – Fruit Posted by sasha on Sep 15, 2013 in Byki Lists, Culture, food, Vocabulary
We’re continuing our journey through the aisles of your local Chinese market here to help you with your grocery shopping needs. Last time, we learned a lot of useful vocabulary about vegetables – here’s that post in case you missed it. That’s one important part of a balanced diet, but we can’t forget about fruit (水果 – shuǐ guǒ).
Here are the Chinese names for 20 different types of fruit. Learn these and the vegetables, and you’ll be well on your way to doing all of your shopping in Chinese!
Practice using these words when you go shopping, and use them to try and answer these discussion questions!
