A Chinese Family Tree could easily have a few dozens members on it. For beginners it is unnecessary to know how to say all the different relatives in Chinese. In this Chinese speaking practice video, we will focus on the Basic Chinese Family Tree, which covers Chinese family members for beginners: parents and siblings. Repeat after the video and be able to say all of them.
