I assume by this time, you already started learning Pinyin. If not, please go through my previous article . Do you know that an average Chinese speaker talks english words in his/her daily life? and interestingly you can’t even identify that they are talking in English. In fact there is a long list of words but I take this opportunity to share few words along with its pinyin so that you can practice it.

  1. Thank you  – 三克油  (Sān kè yóu )
  2. how are you ? – 好啊油 ( Hǎo a yóu  )
  3. Hello – 哈喽- (Hā lóu )
  4. Bus – 巴士- (Bāshì )
  5. Sofa – 沙发 (shā fā)
  6. Sandwich  – 三明治 (sān míng zhì)
  7. Salad -沙拉 (shā lā)
  8. Chocolate -巧克力 (qiǎo kè lì)
  9. Cheese -芝士 (zhī shì)
  10. Sauna – 桑拿 (sāng ná)
  11. Coffee – 咖啡 (kā fēi)
  12. Bye bye – 拜拜 (bāi bāi)
  13. Ampere -安培 (ānpéi )
  14. Dim Sum -点心 (diǎn xīn).
  15. Coolie – 苦力 (kǔ lì)
  16. Typhoon – 台风 (tái fēng)
  17. Yoga – 瑜迦 ( yújiā)
  18. Soda – 苏打 (sūdá )
  19. Motor – 摩托 (mótuō )
  20. Bar – 吧 (bā )
  21. Baby – 宝贝 (Bǎobèi )
  22. Email – 伊妹儿 ( Yī mèi er )
  23. Guitar – 吉他 ( Jítā )
  24. Google – 谷歌 ( Gǔgē )
  25. Camera – 开麦拉 ( Kāi mài lā )

If you observe the above words, there are actually the true pronunciation of english but in a Chinese way. If you use a dictionary, you may not get a true translation of many of the above words, because these words are been used unofficially by many of the Chinese native speakers despite their unavailability in the dictionary.

Being a language learner, it will be very exciting to see Chinese people actually are using English words but after reading this article, probably your perceptions of listening my change.
