334 Put On & Take Off
Sylvia Cruz is the Vice President of Finance and Strategy for EF Education First, as well as being a mother to three young children, so putting on and taking off or changing clothes is something that the children are doing all the time! ShaoLan explains the verbs for “putting on” and “taking off” and gives some examples of different items of clothing that are regularly put on and taken off, such as shoes, top, trousers, skirt or dress. A very useful episode for learning how to describe what you are wearing right now!
The Chinese word “to wear” is 穿 and the word for “clothes” is 衣服 so 穿衣服 means “wear clothes.” The Chinese word “to take off” is 脫, which can also mean “to undress” or “to escape.” So to “take off clothes” is 脫衣服.
