一 means number "one", pronounced as "yi" in first tone, so written as one horizontal stroke.

二 means number "two", pronounced as "er" in fourth tone, so written as two horizontal strokes.

三 means number "three", pronounced as "san" in first tone, so written as three horizontal strokes.

三 is pronounced san in Japanese also so the 3's are both the same. :}

Check out the tips at the start

I wonder why 4 isn't 4 strokes? I know that I'm Chinese but I can't help wondering...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wuraola395790

Please how do we write 37 or 378


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GaryLBulthouse

The tips when you start a lesson do a great job of explaining, but see if you can make sense of this: 37 = 三十七, three 10's and a seven, 378 = 三百七十八 , three one hundreds, seven tens and an eight.

Is it really true?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElianNight

The pronunciation is bad, the audio says "fan" and it is "san"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HaniaBatoo1

Chinese does not sound same as it is written . Chinese sounds are little bit different


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FluffyDaCorgi

But some other audios say is san, not fan


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fay502621

If you listen reaaaly closely, you can hear the 's', but other than that you can't.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anderson_Lu.

When he said sān. It sounded more like he said fān. Can they change it up

Btw. No one will ever give me a lingot so i will have to earn them on my own.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stupedfatidiot

Even when i concentrate as hard as possible, i hear him say Fun.

(Well, as you see, im quite stupid, but still)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Caleb829123

Hang on. Im searching in between my couch coushins for lingots


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LindaChi4

I got 106 lingots

If you type the 三 when the program asks you what 三 means and to type it in English, it counts it as a correct response.

How am i supposed to translate this so early when I wasnt taught what the word meant??!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LazyEinstein

Scroll your the character and you will see a dropdown bubble with the character's meaning.

  1. explanation disappeared with new structure
  2. first explanation of words, like other languages would help
  3. first less complicated structures, way of saying in chinese is very different from english

On the website version of Duolingo click on the Tips.

How come I wrote "Sān" and that was wrong?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Arctic_Line

It's asking for the English, not the transliteration.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EquanimousLingo

Same pronunciation as in Japanese.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Oliver482382

It is saying I typed in English yet there were only Chinese symbols to tap. I don't know how I am meant to complete this lesson.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gea123gea

why the explanation of chinese disappeared with the new structure wa bu gao xing!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/theyadore_

San 3 three lines horizantal


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Peggy_Wi

It should say 'translate into ENGLISH or PINYIN'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/natsukiboc_jp

ici ni san shi go roku shichi hachi kyu ju Chinese pronunciation is often similar to Japanese, so as a Japanese, it's easy and fun to learn Chinese. Also, we know the meanings of the kanjis so we can understand what the word means even if we can't pronounce it. It's a benefit for us;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Moon370143

Misspelt. Not fair


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tongaroo2019

I go to Chinese immersion school and I think that I know every thing .


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/froddo3

I know it is "san", but the audio is clearly saying "Fan"!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/caitlin336490

it wont let me finish tge practice because it says im typing in english not Chinese and im selecting from what i was provided by the.app and the numbers provided were Chinese


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Linda392482

Chinese charter is written as eight, why is it saying the answer us three?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ALLintolearning3

No, three lines are three, so you must have come from the wrong page?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Linda392482

The Chinese character is written as 8 why is it saying the correct character is 3?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ALLintolearning3

Take a screenshot and report it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/purva_9915

The audio detector never approves of whater i say in this lesson am i making some mistakes in pronunciation ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/meilonn

I just came here from Japanese. Yahoo the characters are the same!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Coca1308

I could understand if it was san ok ban


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FluffyDaCorgi

I know it's san, but the person sounds like he is saying fun, and the other people that pronounce san say it differently.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lakerbat

It would not allow me to answer.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KatrinaIm1

It sounded like 八 I even replayed it. It was definitely not 三。


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ultimatemanjr.

It's so easy. The Chinese word LITERALLY shows you the answer.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pszczka10

San is it a three


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Davy523408

The voice said ba


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/G00binDaMan

(-_-;) I heard ba on a question that wanted me to hear san... messed up badly.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/xSkj9

Это хорошие уроки


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GaryLBulthouse

I had to listen EIGHT TIMES before I heard "san" instead of "fan" !! GEESH I thought I was going deaf thats why I came to the discussion , just to see is anyone else had that problem!!! Nothing like complicating an already arduous task!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Cherotich13

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaddyChain
