One Simple Song to Practise Chinese - Part 1

In the coming few weeks, I’d be sharing with you a few Mandarin songs specifically selected, which are good for Beginner-Intermediate level.

Song of the day: 童话 tóng huà (Fairy Tale)

A little note about the song:

  • A very famous song used to overwhelm China and Taiwan

  • Simple and repeated wordings make you easier to memorise

  • All words appeared are commonly used

Easy enough, the video clip contains the English translations, Chinese Pinyin, and Chinese characters for your to read and sing along. We have also directly translated the lyrics into English in the text below, which helps you to understand each word more easily.

Now, enjoy and learn some new Chinese words!
