Lesson Transcript

Hello! Welcome to Cantonese Weekly Words!
In this video we’re going to talk about the solar system.
1. 太陽 sun
我鍾意曬太陽。 I like sun bathing.
2. 月亮 moon
今晚嘅月亮好光呀。 Tonight's moon is very bright.
3. 地球 the Earth
We all live on the Earth, I suppose.
南極係喺地球嘅最南面。 Antarctica is most southern part of the Earth.
4. 火星 Mars
火星上面有水。 There is water on Mars.
5. 水星 Mercury
Literally it’s “water planet”, but is there water on Mercury? I don’t know. That’s NASA’s job to find out.
水星離地球有幾遠呢? How far is Mercury away from the Earth?
You can tell how in Chinese the planets are named after the five elements: gold, water, fire, earth, and wood; that’s how we memorize the names.
So that’s it for today, today we talked about the solar system in Cantonese, and I’ll see you next time in other Cantonese videos. I’m Olivia. Have a nice day, bye!
