1. Introduction: Hello. Welcome back. This is less than two off HSG. Once the Cabra based pours, what it means is every lesson we go to learn s specific. Several words and related government bonds. If this your first time taking my cost that I highly recommend that you take the lessons one by one. So you have all the information you need to go to the next lesson. Sometimes it's OK, even if you don't really take the lessons in Gordon. All right, so let's go ahead and get started with lesson to 2. Class Project : class parted for your cost. Parcher. I like you to complete a lesson to class, to project Worksheet and then submit your answers to our purchase gallery. J o. I'll see you again until next lesson by 3. Hello : Hello and welcome back to listen to Well, listen to our first word. It's actually a word we learned a lesson one and the word It's knee me Ni means you and a second word is how How how means good? Okay, depends on the context. Now we are going to pair them together, we have knee and then we have how together they create knee Hall, which means Hello. So hello, literally, It's composed of you and good. You good. It's how we say hello Ni Hall Need how? All Right, I have a question for you. What do you do when someone says Ni hao to you? Ni Hao Mental Oh, I hope you don't just ignores present a and then walks away That will be so sad, Right? Ni ho means hello. So when someone says hello to you, you can just say hello back. So let's come back to our scenario again. If a person a says Ni Hao and person B, which in your case Oh, showing that's you. You just say Ni Hao just say the same thing back 4. The Actual Pronunciation : No, I want to listen to two pronunciations. The 1st 1 is Ni Hao Ni Hao Ni hao and the 2nd 1 is Ni Hao Ni huh Ni Huh? Can you hear the difference? It's okay if you don't pick it up, but hopefully you can pick out the tiny bit of defense in those two pronunciations. So let's take a look. The first pronunciation is knee hall with me as a second toe. The second pronunciation keeps me as a Thurtell knee. Ni e Huh? One thing want to keep in my EDS When we write the pinging, we usually keep the default tongue, which is Thurtell need. However, when we're pronouncing it, we actually is. Pronounce it as a second till knee hall Ni hao. This is the one thing you want to keep in mind or you're looking at the word and we are actually pronouncing it. Luckily, it doesn't happen. Toe. All characters are all words. It only happens when we have to third tones next to each other. Which one sounds more natural to you? I didn't say the 2nd 1 5. Tone Sandhi : all right. This change is called tone, Sandy. It happens when you have 1/3 tone, followed by another Thurtell. And it doesn't matter what the curator is. So with Nihal, when we see that impinging only with the knee as a Thurtell. However, when we read this word, we really us a second tone and the Thurtell. So it because Ni hao ni hell, let's take a look at another example. This is what opinion looks like when it's written. When we're pronouncing we say cookie curry, that means can as they can you do something. Let's take a look at another example We have the word written as this is the third time in the Thurtell when we pronounce, it was, say, show be all show be all and that means what, as in a noun, not verb 6. 吗 ma - A Question Particle : the next word. It's so we're now notice that we don't have any told Mark on this one. That means is the fifth tone or the neutral tone. It's light and short. Ma is a really cool character. It's a question particle. It turns a statement into a question. Let's take a look. The word we learned today is Knee Hall Ni hao, and that means Hello, all literally women's you Good. Now if I want to turn dying to question all I need to do, it's Emma at the end of the word. So now we have I need help. Ni Helm. And that means How are you? Literally immense. You good. Right now we know how to ask the question. How are you? Which is Ni Homa? We're going to learn how to respond. 7. How to Respond: how to respond. First word we're going to need its war war all means I on me for our last lesson and then we're going to have a new word. It's called Hen. You will often say, being translated as very in our case, the function off, Hon. It's really functioning as a linking word. A links are subject to whatever adjective we are trying to describe. You will see more about hunting a bit. Next we have our how again. All right, let's put it together. We have war hen. How war hung how and that means I am fine. 8. 很 hen : Let's take a look at her because we're here. War, hon. How translates to I am fine. This home links our subject, and now actress have, together with this M notice that it's followed by an active, not a now, unlike our to be are to be that we learned in less and one it follows. And now so for sure, we have subject, sure, and then whatever denounce. However, without her, we have subject Hearn and then followed by the Except so the key difference is that whether it's followed by now on edge is half that would determine whether we use shoot all. 9. 很 (hen) or 是 (shi) : Let's practice which one is correct, was sure how or work on how the current answer it wore hon. How how it's are additive, so we need to use her to link our adjective toe are subject. 10. Practice: Let's practice question one. What did you say was so asses? Ni hao We say the same thing back Ni Hao Question two What do you say? One So a says knee helm, you reply Wave will hunt How? 11. Review: review. Here's a list of words we covered in this lesson. We learned Hearn, which means very but often used as eggs, inking word toe link, all subbed it and not address have together. How means OK, good ma, A really fascinating particle, and it's a question particle. It turns a statement into a question. We covered the following learning points 31 the Thurtell Sandy and when to use hon in self shoot How to great Someone said Just Ni Hao and the Hama and how to respond with me. How is it the same thing back anyhow with knee homma? Was it well and happy? 12. Repeat After Me (1x): go. What do? Repeat after me? Me? You! How good! Okay. Ni hao! Hello, ma. A question Particle turns a statement into a question. I need help. How are you? War? I me, hon? Very a linking word war on how I am fine. 13. Repeat After Me (3x): repeat after me three times Eat Chinese owning me Me, me How How How Ni hao Ni hao Ni hao Mom Ma Ma ni hao Alma Ni Homa Ni Homa Well, uh well, uh, well uh huh huh Huh. Wow! How one on how Wang Hao 14. HSK 1 Word List for This Lesson: h sk one word list hen. How? 15. Practice : practice. I like you to translate the following phrases from English to Chinese. 16.
