Good Morning

Today learned to say good morning to all in a room:


da4 jia1 = everyone
zao3 shang5 hao3 = good morning

I have been studying a lot of weiqi with my broken leg. Haven't done as much Chinese, because I often do that in the car, and not driving much yet. I guess I should translate more Pooh though, stay posted for more episodes of him :)

Broke My Leg...

I broke my leg... I haven't been posting or studying Chinese much. I spent a lot of time feeling sorry for myself :)

But today, felt like making at least a small post, trying to say in Chinese: I broke my leg.

- I is easy: 我
- broke, no idea, will have to look up. Hmmm, not very promising, so many entries for break. Wonder what would be good. Guess I'll go with " 拗 ao4 bend / break in two"
- my : 我的
- leg: 腿 tui3 leg , or 胫 jing4 lower part of leg. I think i'll go with the first one.

My result:

Please leave comments if I totally screwed up. 谢谢
