Winter Vocabulary in Chinese : A Word Scramble Puzzle


Two weeks ago, we published a word search puzzle with winter-related Chinese words. Now you have the chance to review those words with a fresh exercise.

First, unscramble the pinyin words, then, make an effort to select the appropriate Hanzi from the pine tree below so you can construct the same words using Chinese characters as well. 

If you find this exercise too difficult, just scroll down to the end of this blog post, where you will find the answers as usual.


ĚXNRUÉ = snowman
ĚUIÁǓYXJ = sleet, snow with rain
RÀĚTO = earmuffs
UĀUĚHX = snowflake
XUÀXIĚ = to snow
NHZĪUGBĪ = icicle
NSŌGǓSH = pine tree
ÁXUHĚU = skiing
HÁNGBUĪ = skating
ĚIOQUXĀ = sledge
UXUÌXDĒĚ = snow boots
