Chinese Language Learning Program Lesson 84–Tongue twister in Chinese

Chinese Language Learning Program
Lesson 84 – Tongue twister in Chinese

Hello, everyone. Welcome back. This is Baixues Chinese Language Learning Program. Last time we talked about all kinds of punctuations in Chinese. Today, we will have a tongue twister.

   zhī zhī wéi zhī zhī
《知           之》
(What you know, you know,)
--practice the whole syllable “zhi”

zhī zhī wéi zhī zhī,
(What you know, you know,)

bù zhī wéi bù zhī,
(what you don't know, you don't know.)

bù yǐ bù zhī wéi zhī zhī,
不以            之,
(Do not take what you don’t know as what you know,)

bù yǐ zhī zhī wéi  bù zhī,
(Do not take what you know as what you don’t know,)

wéi cǐ cái néng qiú zhēn zhī.
(Only doing this, we can know the truth.)

Today’s idiom is:

zuò jiǎn zì fù
(be caught in one's own trap cocoon oneself like silkworms fall into a pit of one's own digging)

jīn tiān nǐ men zuò jiǎn zì fù.
(Today, you are caught in your own trap.)

Ok, that is all for today.

xiè  xiè!
    ! (Thanks!)

xià  cì  jiàn 
     !  (See you next time!)
