Chinlingo Podcast│Is it really funny to say the names of Southeast Asian countries in Chinese? (1)


The Olympic Games is in full swing. It is a sports meet which almost all countries in the world take part in. How many sport events have you watched so far?

 

Well, we have already presented you the Chinese names of some European countries , and today we will introduce you the Chinese names of some southeast Asian countries.

 

 

1.新加坡 Xīn jiā pō

Singapore

 

The pronunciation is quite similar to that in English. If you exclaim “新加坡” amid a match, would your friends around think you are crazy?

 

2.马来西亚 Mǎ lái xī yà

Malaysia

 

“马来西亚” is also called “马来” by the Chinese. I know there is an impressive badminton player named Lee Chong Wei and a cute girl singing Malaysia Chabor.

 

3.印度尼西亚 Yìn dù ní xī yà

Indonesia

 

Speaking the name, I have to say the Chinese names of Southeast Asian countries really resemble their English equivalences.

 

4.越南 Yuè nán

Vietnam

 

To a Chinese native, this country has the delicious Vietnamese noodles and the beautiful Vietnamese costumes.

 

 

5.老挝 Lǎo wō

Laos

 

I haven’t been to his country. However, to my knowledge, it has the beautiful natural and humanistic scenery.
