Embrace Spring: Learn Mandarin Chinese Amid Blossoming Opportunities

spring Chinese learning

As winter fades away, the arrival of spring brings with it a burst of new life. The once-dormant landscape slowly comes to life, with the grass turning green and the trees budding with new leaves. The air is filled with the sweet aroma of blooming flowers, and the sound of birds chirping fills the sky. Small animals scurry about, enjoying the warm sunshine and fresh foliage. It’s a season of renewal and rejuvenation, and a welcome change from the cold and dreary winter months.

In this beautiful season,  what Chinese can a child learn and how to make the learning fun and engaging?

What Chinese to Learn in Springtime?

Start by immersing yourself in essential Mandarin vocabulary related to Spring. Learn words like 春天 (chūn tiān) for “Spring”, 花朵 (huā duǒ) for “flowers”, 温暖 (wēn nuǎn) for “warm”, “grass” (草, cǎo), “rain” (雨, yǔ), and 阳光 (yáng guāng) for “sunshine”. Incorporating these words into your daily practice will help you connect with the season and deepen your language learning experience.

You can also learn seasonal activities and celebrations, such as 复活节 (fù huó jié) Easter  , the 清明节 (qīng míng jié) Qingming Festival and the Dragon Boat Festival (端午节, duān wǔ jié). By learning these words and phrases, you can better appreciate the beauty and culture of China during this vibrant and exciting season

General Springtime Chinese Vocabulary

Equip the kids with common Springtime words such as sun, flower, grass, bird, chick etc first. Kids associate these words in Chinese with the images/objects they see, which make the Chinese words more meaningful. You can display the words on the wall at home or in the classroom so that children can see them easily.

For example, the general Spring word flashcards as below are perfect for both displaying or teaching your kids the Spring vocabulary.
