Chinese 1 Vocab List
Every new language requires learning a lot of new vocabulary from scratch. Chinese is no exception. You are ready to learn Mandarin vocabulary as soon as you know the basic of Chinese — namely, “Pinyin.” Pinyin teaches you how to pronounce each sound in Chinese using the English alphabet. On top of that (literally), it includes tones (on top of each word). This way you can use pinyin to read Chinese, even though it is not a phonetic language.
This Chinese 1 vocab list will include pinyin in addition to the Chinese and the English. Of course, you can use these as flashcards and hide the components you don’t want to see while studying. On top of this, we have included up to 2 examples sentences for each word. If you’re confused about the meaning or want to see the word in context, then this is where to look. Remember an example sentence is a great way to learn the word in context and preserve a deep memory of its meaning!

In fact, since Chinese is built upon characters… even when you get to advanced vocabulary later, you’ll find the advanced words are still made up of the same simple Chinese characters you’ve been learning in this list. Isn’t that great? So enjoy this Chinese language list of words, as it will help kickstart your language learning!
