Simplified Chinese (Mandarin Language) Practice for Simple Chinese Conversation:

When studying any style of Kung Fu, including Wing Chun, it is a very good practice to slowly begin learning to understand some simplistic Chinese terms (language). Although Wing Chun was created by a Buddhist Nun (Ng Mui) who spoke “Cantonese,” it is very hard to find any “Cantonese” translator websites or applications on the internet because that is not the primary language spoken in China these days. The most common language spoken in China is currently “Mandarin.”

Even though Mandarin Simplified Chinese is drastically different than the traditional Cantonese language, there are enough similarities in the “mind-set” between people who speak Mandarin and people who speak Cantonese, to make studying the language of Mandarin a GREAT practice for anyone who studies and practices Kung Fu because language is similar to a specific algorithm that determines how people think and express themselves. To have a deeply profound understanding of all aspects of Martial Arts, it is very necessary to attempt to understand the language of the people who created that branch of Martial Arts.

For this reason, I will dedicate this page of my website to the task of learning some simple Mandarin terms and simple conversation in the Mandarin language. This will be a “work in progress” as I continue to add information to this page over time. I will first write the word or sentence in:

  1. English.

  2. Then in “Pinyin.”

  3. Then in the form of an [English pronunciation key].

  4. Then is Chinese Characters.

  5. Then I will provide an audio sound-wave of the word or sentence as it sounds in the actual Mandarin language:
