If we must continue to see these snowmen, let’s at least learn how to say it in a few different languages (click on the word, then the “listen” icon to hear pronunciation)
1) Mandarin Chinese – 雪人 (Xuěrén)
2) French – bonhomme de neige (literally “good man of snow”)
3) Turkish – kardan adam
4) Korean – 눈사람 (nunsalam)
5) Russian – снеговик (snegovik)
GLN also currently offers classes in all of these languages if YouTube doesn’t cut it.
So tell us: How do you say “snowman” in a language that you speak?
