Today’s word of the day is 计 (jì) which means ‘to calculate’. Let’s practice by making different words, phrases, and sentences with 计 (jì).
计划 (jì huà) Plan
The first word is 计划 (jì huà) which means plan. A sentence you may hear is 计划突然改变。(Jìhuà túrán gǎibiàn.) The plan suddenly changed. And that’s because nothing in life ever truly goes as planned.
设计师 (shè jì shī) Designer
Another word we can create with 计 (jì) is 设计师 (shè jì shī). This means ‘designer’. A way of using it in a sentence is 你最喜欢的设计师是谁？ (Nǐ zuì xǐhuān de shèjì shī shì shéi?) Who is your favorite designer?
估计 (gū jì) To estimate / reckon
Finally, we can create the word 估计 (gū jì) which means to estimate or to reckon. A way of using it in a sentence is 我估计明天会下雨。(Wǒ gūjì míngtiān huì xià yǔ.) I reckon it will rain tomorrow.
