Vocabulary In Chinese--008: Education (1)-- New Words About "Xué" -- Study

FOLLOWING SHIRLEY TO READ THE NEW WORDS

It is nice that some friends have asked me to introduce some vocabulary in Chinese, so today I will introduce some new words about education.

In this unit I would like to focus my new words on one Chinese word -- Xué, which means learn or study, you will find that most of the Chinese characters and their pronunciation guides below have one word in common, "Xué". :-)


I guess that maybe this is a good way to remember Chinese vocabulary and I do hope that my work will be a little help to you in your Chinese learning. :-)

NEW WORDS :

You can click on any Chinese character that you need to be help with to see its Chinese pinyin, pronunciation and meaning and then follow me to read it.
