#4 Learn Chinese 6000 Words

Learn Chinese 6000 Words
Who knew moving to China involved downloading so many apps? You definitely need Pleco! It’s the best English-to-Chinese language app by a long shot. I hardly speak any Mandarin, but I knew how to say “Do you have [item]?” and “Where is [location]?” Knowing tiny phrases like that and being able to pull up any word on Pleco is how I survived China without speaking Mandarin!

When you type in an English word or start typing some pinyin into the app, it will give you the translation in both Chinese characters and pinyin, plus it will even speak it out loud for you! I hear there’s a premium version, too, where you can take a picture of Chinese characters and it will give you its best translation.

I highly recommend that everyone moving to China have a portable power banks like this – you’re likely to spend a lot of time on public transportation in China and being able to charge your devices is necessary when you need your phone to get around, pay for meals, and potentially translate directions.

Aim for a power bank with at least 10,000 mAh and you’ll be able to get 2-3 full phone charges out of it.
