Today’s word of the day is 家 (jiā) which means home. Let’s practice by making different words, phrases, and sentences with 家 (jiā).
大家 (dà jiā) Everyone
The first word is 大家 (dà jiā) which means ‘everyone’. Let’s look at each character of this word, 大 means big and 家 means ‘home’. A very common way to start of presentations or talks to a large audience is to say 大家好！(Dàjiā hǎo!) Hello everyone!
国家 (guó jiā) Country
Another word we can create with 家 (shēn) is 国家 (guó jiā). This means ‘country’. A way of using it in a sentence is 中国是一个社会主义国家。(Zhōngguó shì yīgè shèhuì zhǔyì guójiā.) China is a socialist country.
回家 (huí jiā) To go home
Finally, we can create the word 回家 (huí jiā) which means ‘to go home’. For the introverts out there who may have had enough social activity outside, you can say 我想回家。(Wǒ xiǎng huí jiā.) ‘I want to go home.’ when the time is right.
