Professions : A Word Scramble Puzzle for Chinese Learners


In the picture, you can find jumbled Chinese characters. If you unscramble them, you can build 15 Chinese words from them; they all make references to jobs in Chinese. Two professions-related exercises are available on Hanna's blog. The first one is a matching game, and the second one is a quiz. If you cannot solve this exercise, try looking up those blog posts first, then return to this puzzle and try again. As usual, the solutions are listed at the end of the article.
