Words of the Day: Cheng Zi (Orange)

Posted: Saturday, May 29, 2010 By Ni Hao Books

The Words of the Day for today is 橙子, chéng zi (orange). After moving to the US from mainland China, I started to make friends with people from Taiwan. It's very interesting how they use different words to describe things sometimes. One example is the fruit orange. In mainland China, it's called 橙子, chéng zi. But people from Taiwan call it 柳丁, liǔ dīng. So even though we all speak the language Mandarin, but there are still differences.
