lesson 4 — e


Add to your dictionary: Starting with the first Chinese word on this page, turn to page “H” of your English/Chinese set, and write “hungry — e, lesson 4.” Then turn to page “E” of your Chinese/English set, and write “e — hungry, lesson 4.” Add the rest of the vocabulary words given on this page.

Combinations, like “he cha” and “hen hao” are not meant to be written in your dictionary, but rather please begin a separate sheet of paper for these, and title it “combinations.”

Each day before you continue with these lessons, read aloud all the entries you have made up to that point, while covering up the meanings on the right side of the pages.

Best wishes!

—– copy and ask a Chinese peerson to read. Listen for the “e” sound
