A Kid's Life in China
Ni hao (nee-how) (hello), my name is Goashuang. I'm a ten year old girl living in Beijing, China. I
speak Mandarin and like most of the people in my country, I belong to the Han
nationality. I live in a beautiful Asian country. Did you know that China has more
people than any other country in the world? In fact, one fifth of the world's
population lives in China. We have tall mountains, farmland, lowlands, plains, and dry
I just got back from playing a game of ping pong with my friends. Ping pong is my favorite
game. Some other games my friends and I like to play are volleyball, basketball, and
Boy is it cold. It gets pretty cold in the winter, but in the summer it's warmer.
Unfortunately it's not summer right now; it's cold winter, and I have school tomorrow and
I can usually count on it being extra cold there. I have to wake up at seven o'clock, so I
can be at school at eight. I have ten minutes between classes and a two hour lunch break. I am in
fifth grade. I go to school six days a week and get Sunday off. At school I learn to write using the
Chinese writing system. We use characters instead of an alphabet. Each character is a symbol that
stands for a complete word. I usually ride my bike to school. A lot of people ride
bikes in China.
It's almost supper time. For supper, each member of my family starts with a bowl
of rice. Then we can help ourselves to the nearest dish which might include soup,
pork, and fish. For breakfast we have noodles and leftover rice. The only utensils
we use are chopsticks and soup spoons. Tea is the favorite Chinese drink.
Chinese people are very creative. Did you know that the Chinese were the first people to invent the
compass, paper, porcelain, and silk cloth?
Well I got to go. Bye.
