SCRIPT

Hello everyone, welcome to AskBennyChinese.Com Micro-Class! This is Benny! The most popular Mandarin teacher in the world. Today our experience is about how to say “I work in Shanghai”.

 

In Chinese we say:
“Wǒ zài Shànghǎi gōngzuò.”
“Wǒ zài Shànghǎi gōngzuò.”

 

Wǒ” means “I”.

 

Zài” means “to be in” and “to be at”.
“Zài” means “to be in” and “to be at”.

 

While “Shànghǎi”, I don’t need to explain, everyone knows Shanghai.

 

gōngzuò” is “to work”.

 

And there is a sentence structure, which is:

 

Zài + place + gōng zuò

 

It means:

 

Work in” or “at place”.

 

Therefore, the whole sentence is:
“Wǒ zài Shànghǎi gōngzuò.”
“Wǒ zài Shànghǎi gōngzuò.”

 

I work in shanghai.

 

All right, did you get it? Come with me! Let’s see if it works.

 

 

SCENE 1:

Benny : wǒ zài Shàng hǎi gōng zuò.

Bobo : wǒ yě shì.

[Let’s see that close up]

Benny : wǒ zài Shàng hǎi gōng zuò.

Bobo : wǒ yě shì.

 

 

 

It's easy as ABC!
