    How do Chinese people actually congratulate each other for new year? Do they sample say 'happy new year' in Chinese or do they have some different ways of expressing their new year wishes?

    Happy new Year in Chinese -- Greeting Formula 1 -- Animal of the Chinese Zodiac + 年 + 快乐

    A very common way to wish somebody a happy new year in Chinese is the use of the actual year zodiac sign + the chinese character for year 年 + 快乐 which stands for happy in this case. There are 12 animals in the Chinese Zodiac and therefore it is a repeating cycle of 12 years with each year being represented by an animal and its respective attributes. So at the Chinese New Year 2016, which started at the 08.02.2016, people would go about saying 猴年快乐, as 2016 is the Year of the Monkey. Next year will be the year of the rooster, so you will hear and see signs with 鸡年快乐 all over China.

    Different ways to wish somebody a Happy New Year in Chinese

    Instead of naming the animal of the Chinese Zodiac to say happy new year in chinese, one could also just simply say 新年快乐. 新 stands for new, 年 stands for year and 快乐 stands for happy, just as we have seen earlier. This 'formula' is obviously universal, as you can use it every new year, as it is completely independent from the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. 

    Another very common greeting phrase for chinese new year is 恭喜发财, which can be translated as congratulations and prosperity, where 恭喜 stands for congratulations and 发财 stands for prosperity. As the new year in China is commonly referred to as the Spring Festival 春节, you could very well just expressing your wishes saying 春节快乐 as well.

    I'll try to to write down on here my efforts in language learning I actually am studying.

    I hope that this blog helps me to get some routine, to get a daily base, and the most of all: Structure! =) ..at least a little bit of that, lol. 

    So my task for now is, to clean up my phone from all language learning apps I don't use anyway, and thinking about what and in which amount I can practice daily.
