Podcast:Do You Really Understand What Chinese People Say?



前两天,有外国朋友跟我说,中文太难了。我想告诉大家,学习中文并不难,真正难的是如何与中国人相处。如果你能真正听懂中国人口中的中文,理解他们的意思,学中文对你来说,就只是一块小蛋糕!

A foreign friend said to me the other day, “Chinese is too difficult!” However, I would tell you that what is really difficult is not learning Chinese but getting along with Chinese people. Learning Chinese will be just a piece of cake, as long as you can really understand what Chinese people say.

 

今天想说一个中国人非常常用的词:

Today, I’d like to present you a word that is frequently used by Chinese people.

 

Suàn le

算了

Forget it

 

在中国人口中,算了只是一句“Forget it”这么简单吗?

 

Is “算了” simply equivalent to “Forget it”?

 

它可能还表达了这些意思:

It may imply the following connotation:

 

1. Never mind!

   A : Bù hǎo yì siwǒ wàng jì bǎ nǐ de zá zhì huán gěi nǐ le

E.g. A:不好意思,我忘记把你的杂志还给你了!

        Sorry, I have forgot to give the magazine back to you.

   B: Suàn lesòng gěi nǐ ba

   B:算了,送给你吧。

Never mind. Just keep it.

 

还有可能表示:

as well as:

2. I can not do it! I give up

   A: Nǐ bú jì xù zuò fàn ma


E.g. A: 你不继续做饭吗?

       Why don’t you continue with your cooking?

   B: Tài nán lesuàn le ba … …

   B: 太难了,算了吧……

      It’s too difficult. I give up…

 

如果你听到你的女朋友这样说,她的意思可能是:

When you hear the word from your girlfriend, it may mean

3. I feel disappointed.

A: Duì bù qǐwǒ wàng le nǐ de shēng rì

E.g. A: 对不起,我忘了你的生日!

Sorry, I have forgot your birthday!

   B: Suàn le suàn le … …

   B: 算了算了……

     Stop it…

 

或许,当他说这句话的时候他只是失去了耐心:

One may also say the word , when he or she has lost the patience:

4. I don’t want to do it anymore!

A: Nǐ zhěng lǐ le yì tiān fáng jiānwèi shén me bù zhěng lǐ wán ne

E.g. A:你整理了一天房间,为什么不整理完呢?

   You have been tidying up the room today. Why don’t you just finish it?

   BSuàn lejiù zhè yàng ba

   B:算了,就这样吧。

      Just call it quits.

 

在你跟中国人交流的过程中,他们有没有说一些别的词让你困惑呢?如果有的话就留言告诉果果吧~
