When the weather is good, isn’t it nice to get an ice cream?  Isn’t it cooler to know Chinese around ice cream?

How to say ice cream in Chinese

Ice cream is a foreign word. There are two terms, both referring to ice cream, both are the combination of the word meaning (ice冰)+ pronunciation of cream.  雪糕 is a Chinese word. It literally means SNOW + CAKE.

So in Chinese we can say Ice Cream in three ways:

冰激凌 (bīng jīlíng)

冰淇淋 (bīng qílín)

雪糕 (xuě gāo)

There is nearly no difference between these two, so feel free to use either of them.

[Tweet “Ice cream is a foreign word it is “冰激凌(bīngjīlíng)“ or 冰淇淋 (bīng qílín)in Chinese which is a combination of the word meaning (ice冰)+ pronunciation of cream (激凌or淇淋). #Chinese4kids”]
