SCRIPT

Hi guys, It’s really good to see you again. For you first timers, My name is Benny, the most popular Mandarin teacher in the world. Today I’m going to teach you something very very helpful, which is:
“I don’t like this one, I like that one.”

 

In Chinese we say:
“Wǒ bù xǐhuan zhège, wǒ xǐhuan nàge.”
“Wǒ bù xǐhuan zhège, wǒ xǐhuan nàge.”

 

Wǒ” means “I”.

 

Bù xǐhuan” means “don’t like”.
“Bù xǐhuan” means “don’t like”.

 

While,
“Xǐ huan” means “to like”.
“Xǐ huan” means “to like”.

 

And
“zhège” means “this one”.
“Zhège” means “this one”.

 

Nà ge” means “that one”.
“Nà ge” means “that one”.

 

Therefore, the whole sentence in Chinese is:
“Wǒ bù xǐhuan zhège, wǒ xǐhuan nàge.”
“Wǒ bù xǐhuan zhège, wǒ xǐhuan nàge.”

 

OK, did you get it? Come with me! Let’s see what’s gonna happen!

 

 

SCENE 1:

A: Nà, nǐ juéde zhège zěnmeyàng ne?

B: Wǒ bù xǐhuan nàge, wǒ xǐhuan zhège.
A: Hǎo de, nà nǐ kàn yīxià hǎo le. Nà wǒ bāng nǐ ná
qǐlai.
B: Xièxie!

 

 

It's easy as ABC!
