Hello! 大家好！欢迎来到Chinese weekly
words. Welcome back. This week, we are going to talk about “Currency Exchange”. 兑换(duìhuàn)
It means “to convert”.
Well it’s only used when you talk about money. 我想把人民币兑换成美元。
(Wǒ xiǎng bǎ rénmínbì duìhuàn chéng měiyuán.)
I just said… “I want to convert the RMB (or Renminbi, which is the Chinese money, Chinese yuan), change them into American dollars.” Next one is 外汇(wàihuì)
外(wài) means “foreign”, like
外国人 (wàiguó rén) “foreigner”.
外汇(wàihuì) means “foreign exchange” So this is the sentence you use when you go
into a bank and you ask a staff…
(Zhèlǐ bànlǐ wàihuì yèwù ma ?)
“Do you have or do you do foreign exchange here?” 现金(xiànjīn)
It is like you can count it, it is “cash”. In Chinese… like there are different ways.
I think some people do that. Some people just like fan it out, do you say that? I wish I
had money in my hand to show you. 这家店只能用现金不能刷卡。
(Zhè jiā diàn zhǐnéng yòng xiànjīn bù néng shuākǎ.)
“In this store, you can only use
cash, you cannot use your card.” 刷卡 (shuākǎ) means “to swipe your card”. Next one is 货币(huòbì)
货币(huòbì) means “currency” 这种货币很值钱。
(Zhèzhǒng huòbì hěn zhíqián.)
“This kind of currency is worth a lot of money
(or is very valuable).” 很值钱 (hěn zhíqián) can mean “valuable”.
(Zhèzhǒng huòbì hěn zhíqián.) Next one 美元(měiyuán)
美 (měi) is 美国 (měiguó) “America”; 美元(měiyuán) “US Dollar”
(Zhè jiā jīchǎng de shāngdiàn lǐ
kěyǐ yòng měiyuán.)
“The stores in this airport accepts US dollars.” I hope you like this video and this will be
our last episode for now. Well I guess I will see you down the road. I really hope you guys
