(Old Version- Please view 2019 video instead) LEARNING CHINESE PROVINCES: PART O

This is an older version of the video. A revised and improved version was released March 15, 2019. There were a number of graphics improvements and also a small box to display full pinyin with tone marks was added for those studying Chinese.
It is recommended you watch the updated version at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-s48UjLC8Q

The names of a dozen Chinese provinces are based on their location. Once you learn a handful of words, including north, south, east, west, mountain, river, and lake, you will have the key. Then, knowing the names and locations of the ten provinces mentioned in this video is so easy you will wonder why anyone would find them difficult.

Note: These videos incorporate the “simplified” Chinese characters as currently used by the great majority of Chinese speakers. Likewise, the “English” names of Chinese geographic areas are those in current use. Most are based on the “Pinyin” romanized versions of Chinese pronunciation.
