This one here, W Oh, it might look a bit complicated. But that is fine because we at this point, hopefully, we have, I've equipped you with enough understanding of Chinese that you know exactly how to approach a character. What you should do is look at it and go, Oh, it looks complicated, but I can handle this. Let's break it down into two parts. Let's split it in the middle. And on the right part, we can start with the right part.

What's actually here is something new. It's this one, and I wrote why, but we're not going to pronounce this character on its own. We're just going to use it like a building block. The next part, though, is this one. And it doesn't just start with this one. You see, it actually has two lines.

But we'll start with this one and understand this one and build it up to this one. It's not very complicated at all. Again, let's ignore the pronunciation for both of these. So this one, actually, if you look it up in a dictionary will say a little dagger. But let's not make it complicated because we won't use it on its own. So just Make up the simplest way to remember it by.

And so I think if we just call it a sword, that will be enough. Yes, we are going to be corrected on that if we look it up in a dictionary, but a sword is more or less a dagger. So yes, I think we can we can we can stretch for this one sword. And then this one. What we've done here is I've actually added a little little stroke there in the in the bottom there, as you can see here on the bigger characters up and here, we can still call it a sword. This one is not going to be used either on its own but we can call this one like a bigger sword you see has one more stroke.

It's a more fierce sword, a bigger sword simply. And this is all I'm going to put down on this side. Also, I think this is like Domino Chinese 3.0. Now it means that I've recorded this entire course 150 hours I think at least twice. And the other two times that I recorded it and I broke down the sword and bigger sword a little bit more than I'm doing right now. But I realized that it's not necessary.

So just trust me on this one. But what's funny though, is I can show you I How I ran around ran around in my old apartment in China, trying to teach you this word, you can see it here. Feel so good. Wonderful. So hopefully that'll give you a long lasting memory of what this is. And this is now pronounced we'll go We'll go to what it means and how it's pronounced.

It's pronounced war war war, like we saw and it means I, but it doesn't just mean I it means me also. So this I could break this down further for you. But it's better when we get to examples basically, subject an object. There's no difference in Chinese. So if you say I hit me, you just say I hit I literally, war hit war. So it's both an object and sorry sub subject and an object.

So in English, we have different words for that. But in Chinese we do not need that. I find that very nice. Thank you thankful for that. The left part now is either this or this but it's Definitely a hundo hope you can see that if you put it next to it, you might be able to compare a little bit is a one to three strokes. 123 and then and then what a hardware thing through the middle there.

It looks very squishy. It looks like sorry, it looks very squishy looks like this one, but, but it has three strokes and this one just has two going through it. So I'll just wait both of them. It's either definitely one of them. I don't know which one though. But yeah, okay, so we go hand in hand.

That's what happens if you're not careful with Chinese. Okay, hand and we have soared, and it means me. And now that you look at this character the next time, we can by the way, we can break it down a little bit for you. Let's see. We've gone through these characters now. So it's time to sort of identify them here.

First, we have this emarketing green. This is not the big sword. There we go. And in the end, the hand is going to be much like this. Like this, okay like this, and then like that. Isn't that wonderful?

Okay, so this is whatnot. And if you don't recognize it by just knowing that Oh, but that's the big sword in the hand, then you can tell yourself a little pneumonic, so you can combine the word hand eye or what wore and sought a bigger sword. I think of just the I think of this one a one liner, saying, I hold 100 my sword to sort of defend myself to stand up for myself. So that that sentence includes the word I and hand and sword and actually me as like, because I defend me, I defend myself. There we go. So that's how I remember it.

But hopefully you'll see this one enough time so you don't even need a mnemonics anymore. Wonderful. I'll write this down one more time. And this is one of its first personal pronoun, as an i or you or we, or anything like that. So it's really really common. Now we can hear and say it here as well.

Good luck out. Whoa hmm thank you very much I'm so this is war war war. And I'd like you to tell me now how to say I am if you're British now, or English if you're British. Chinese people might think you're English but it doesn't matter. I'm going to go with British so I am British. How would you be?

How would you say this now in Chinese Good luck. This is a very, very good sentence especially if you are British then
