School Subjects in Chinese Posted by sasha on Sep 7, 2017 in Education, Vocabulary
A new school year is underway in China, and students all across the country are busy with classes and homework. We’ve already learned a lot of useful Chinese school vocabulary in the last post. Now it’s time to learn about school subjects in Chinese.
Here’s a list of school subjects (学校科目 – xué xiào kē mù) in Chinese for you to study:
dì lǐ xué
zhèng zhì xué
jì suàn jī kē xué
shēng wù xué
wù lǐ xué
jīng jì xué
shè huì yán jiū
xīn lǐ xué
You can practice saying some of these words by following this video:
Now that you’ve got your schedule in Chinese, how do you talk about the various school subjects? Here are some useful phrases for you to memorize:
wǒ yǒu… kè
I have… class.
wǒ xǐ huān… kè
I like… class.
wǒ bù xǐ huān… kè
I don’t like… class.
Now take what you’ve learned and try to put together some sentences. See if you can translate these into Chinese:
I study History.
I have Mathematics class.
I like PE class.
I don’t like Biology class.
If you’re a student, see if you can talk/write about your classes this semester. Feel free to leave a comment below and let us know what you’re studying and what classes you like!
