Hi, I’m Jennifer, an online Chinese teacher from Beijing China.


“zan2men” and”wo3men” both mean “we” or “us”, however,“zan2men”includes the object of the dialogue “you”, for example zan2men qu4diao4yu2ba?Let’s go fishing (You will go with us). “wo3men” doesn’t include “you”. for example, wo3men qu4diao4yu2le?We will go fishing (you will not go with us).

I would recommend that you watch subtitled Chinese cartoons on either a VCD or DVD more often. Subtitles can help give you the translations for confusing words, and with a VCD/DVD, you can easily pause and rewind the scenes when the sentences get a bit complicated. Good luck!
