Welcome to the Rocket Chinese lesson on the car – 汽车 qìchē! In this lesson we’ll cover tons of car vocabulary. From hoods to trunks and everything in between. If you’re traveling to China and plan on renting or even buying a car in Chinese, this lesson will be very useful for you. You’ll want to be able to look over your rental and talk about it, as well as feel comfortable describing anything that might go wrong or need fixing to a mechanic - 汽车修理工 qìchē xiūlǐgōng - while you’re on the road.
After this lesson, you’ll be an expert on the car in Chinese!
Rocket Record lets you perfect your Chinese pronunciation. Just listen to the native speaker audio and then use the microphone icon to record yourself. Once you’re done, you’ll get a score out of 100 on your pronunciation and can listen to your own audio playback. (Use a headset mic for best results.) Problems? Click here!
