SCRIPT

Hello everyone, Welcome to Askbenny. This is Benny, the most popular Mandarin teacher in the world. Today I am going to teach you a very important phrase which is “How is the weather today?”

 

In Chinese we say:

 

Jīntiān tiānqì zěnmeyàng?

Jīntiān tiānqì zěnmeyàng?

 

Jīntiān” means today.

 

Tiānqì” is “weather”, “tiānqì”.

 

While“zěnmeyàng” is “how is ”,“zěnmeyàng”,

 

So the whole sentence is

 

Jīntiān tiānqì zěnmeyàng?
