079 Daughter

In this touching episode, ShaoLan invites a very special guest, her father, to join the show and teach the word “daughter” in Chinese. In addition, ShaoLan’s father reviews various way to describe her daughters, including Shaolan’s older siblings. Learn how to introduce your daughters in terms of oldest or youngest. 

女兒 / 女儿 (nǚ ér) translates to “daughter”, the combination of the term “woman” and “child”.

小女孩 (xiǎo nǚ hái) translates to “little girl”.

By adding adjectives, you can describe which daughter you want to refer to. For example, to refer to your oldest daughter, you add the term 大 (dà) or “big” in front of 女兒 / 女儿. On the other hand, by adding the term 小 (xiǎo) or “small”, you refer to the youngest daughter.
